Google Cloud Platform (GCP) continues to rapidly expand our global footprint, and we’re excited to announce the availability of our latest cloud region: Northern Virginia.
Google Cloud customers benefit from our commitment to large-scale infrastructure investments. Each region gives developers additional choice on how to run their applications closest to their customers, while Google’s networking backbone transforms compute and storage infrastructure into a global-scale computer, giving developers around the world access to the same cloud infrastructure that Google engineers use every day.
We’ve launched Northern Virginia with three zones and the following services:
"We are a latency-sensitive business and the addition of the Northern Virginia region will allow us to expand our coverage area and reduce latency to our current users. This will also allow us to significantly increase the capability of our Data Lake platform, which we are looking at as a competitive advantage" — Linh Chung, CIO at Viant, a Time Inc. CompanyWe want to help you build what’s Next for you. Our locations page provides updates on the availability of additional services, and for guidance on how to build and create highly available applications, take a look at our zones and regions page. Give us a shout to request early access to new regions and help us prioritize what we build next.
