GCP expanding to three new regions

Expansion to new cloud regions in Chile, Germany and Saudi Arabia

Google Cloud just announced the service will soon be available in three more regions: Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Chile - with 12 more coming.

Google Cloud regions are designed to providing services and products for GCP customers. Cloud regions provide faster service in a given location so organizations can deliver their products and services more reliably and at higher speeds.

What changed in 2020

In 2020, Google launched four new cloud regions—Jakarta (Indonesia), Las Vegas (U.S.), Salt Lake City (U.S.), and Seoul (South Korea)—and announced more to come, including Doha (Qatar), Madrid (Spain), Milan (Italy), and Paris (France).

What's Coming

Google Cloud is adding a second region to Germany (complementing the existing one in Frankfurt) and Chile is getting its first cloud region and will join the current only site in South America (São Paulo, Brazil) and Saudi Arabia (Doha, Qatar).

These new regions will join other to be completed regions on Warsaw (Poland), Doha (Qatar), Toronto (Canada), Melbourne (Australia), Delhi (India), Paris (France), Milan (Italy), Santiago (Chile), and Madrid (Spain).

Green Cloud

Google also states that GCP is the cleanest cloud available:

We do all of this while operating the cleanest cloud in the industry, matching 100 percent of the electricity we use with renewable energy. This commitment to sustainability enables our customers to meet their own cloud computing needs with zero net carbon emissions.
