Google App Engine flexible environment now available from europe-west region

A few weeks ago we shared some big news on the Google App Engine flexible environment. Today, we’re excited to announce our first new region since going GA: App Engine flexible environment is now available in the europe-west region. This release makes it easier than ever for App Engine developers to reach customers all around the world.

To get started, simply open up the Developers Console and create a new project, and select App Engine. After choosing a language, you can now specify the location as europe-west. Note that once a project is created, its region cannot be changed.

You can also create your application from the command line using the latest version of the Cloud SDK:

gcloud app create --region europe-west

To learn more about the services offered in each location, as well as best practices for deploying your applications and saving your data across different regions and zones, check out our Cloud Locations and Geography and Regions pages.
