Fantastic news for Saudi Arabia and Google Cloud..
Google Cloud Platform (GCP), the cloud computing service of Alphabet Inc, provides compute, storage, and networking services through its data centers in over 20 countries and 35 locations around the world. Growth in Google Cloud regions and the company’s core products and platforms, such as Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps, Google Photos, Google Play, Search, and YouTube, are fueling the company’s need for more data center capacity.
Google Cloud currently has 35 regions in operation and a further 9 under development, meaning that the company will have a total of 44 regions available by the end of 2024. Within each Google Cloud region are 3 to 4 deployment areas that map to clusters of data centers with distinct physical infrastructure (i.e., power, cooling, and networking), known by Google as zones, and commonly referred to by other cloud service providers as availability zones.
In total, Google operates or is developing nearly 30 data centers around the world. These data centers support Google’s current and planned 44 cloud regions – a physical location where it clusters data centers – that are designed to be highly available, fault-tolerant, and concurrently maintainable.
A new Google Cloud region is coming to Saudi Arabia to help your business forge ahead, make smarter data-driven decisions, and scale to serve your customers better. With the availability of faster and more secure cloud infrastructure, innovation and rapid development will be within reach of every company.
Whether you’re a traditional business embarking on digital transformation or a digital native with aspirations for global expansion, Google Cloud has a solution for you.
