Google is bringing its Cloud Platform support to Asia

42 sec read

Google has created a new “Asia” region and two new zones – “asia-east1-a” and “asia-east1-b” – for its cloudy Compute Engine service. The new region uses Ivy Bridge CPUs, which means it is built on more modern Intel kit and should offer superior performance compared to Google’s Sandy-Bridge-using US and Europe regions. Google’s not saying much more about the new region other than to say Asian developers can now play in Google’s cloud without having to put up with trans-pacific of trans-eurasian latency.

Google is bringing its Cloud Platform support to the Asia-Pacific region, which means that local developers can now access a set of compute, storage and big data products to build on top of the same infrastructure and technology that powers Google — with better performance and lower latency. Meanwhile, developers around the world will benefit from a broader global network of servers. The expansion of Cloud Platform support is part of Google’s efforts to help businesses work better with cloud-based tools as part of its Enterprise business – but more importantly, it helps to increase its reach in Asia. The Google Cloud Platform website and developer console is also now available in Japanese and Traditional Chinese
