Google launched its first cloud region in India in Mumbai back in 2017 in an aim to improve latency from 20-90% for end users in Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and of course Mumbai. Today the company has announced plans to open a Delhi cloud region next year, expanding Google’s existing network of eight regions in Asia Pacific and 22 regions globally today.
Google’s Delhi cloud region will have three zones to protect against service disruptions. The region will also include a portfolio of key GCP products, offer lower latency to nearby users, and, when combined with the existing region in Mumbai, enables geographically separate in-country disaster recovery for our customers’ mission critical applications.
Regarding this Google said:
GCP regions are the cornerstone of our cloud infrastructure, and they enable customers such as L&T Finance, Manipal Hospital Group, Reliance Mutual Fund, Royal Enfield, TechMahindra, Truecaller, and many more to deliver high performing, secure, low latency, cloud-based services to their users, no matter where they are around the world.
