Google announced that it will open a new Google Cloud Region in Mumbai at the recently held Horizon 2016 conference. Expected to be live in 2017, the India cloud region is aimed at offering Google Cloud Platform services to Indian developers and enterprise customers.
As per sources, Google’s investment in a local Cloud Region reaffirms the commitment of the company to its customers in the country. The local region will help make Google Cloud Platform services even faster for Indian customers, enhancing differentiators that are already motivating companies to choose Google as their partner.
By expanding to new regions, we deliver higher performance to customers. In fact, our recent expansion in Oregon resulted in up to 80% improvement in latency for customers. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new Cloud Regions as they become publicly available throughout 2017.
Brian Stevens, Vice President, Google Cloud
Google made the announcement about the India Cloud Region at an event in San Francisco, called Horizon. It was the launch of Google Cloud, Google’s unique and broad portfolio of products, technologies, and services that let customers operate in a digital world easily and at peak performance.
At Horizon, Google also unveiled G Suite. Previously called Google Apps for Work, G Suite encompasses a set of intelligent apps – Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, and more – designed to bring people together, with real-time collaboration built in from the start.
Google Cloud Platform leverages the infrastructure, machine learning and networking services used to power Google services. It enable businesses and developers to build high performance applications and data analysis at a low cost.
As India’s startup community continues to grow, Cloud Platform provides the full stack of services to build, test and deploy their applications. In addition to its focus on Indian customers, Google is continuing to build its partner ecosystem to support customers as they move to the cloud.
In India, Google already has deep partnerships with a multitude of born-in-the-cloud partners including Searce Co-Sourcing, Cloud Cover, PowerUp Cloud and MediaAgility as well as global partners like Wipro, TCS, Tech Mahindra, PwC and Cognizant. The opening of the cloud region opens up newer opportunities for several new cloud partners who will benefit from building their services on Google Cloud.
With more than one billion end users, Google Cloud has gained significant traction in India and across the world. Globally, key customers already leveraging the benefits of Google Cloud Platform include Snap Inc (formerly SnapChat), Niantic Labs (Pokemon Go), Telus International, and Evernote.
In India too, we have seen great customer momentum with thousands of customers including major brands like Wipro, Ashok Leyland, Smartshift by Mahindra & Mahindra, Dainik Bhaskar Group and INshorts.com building on Google Cloud Platform.
