Just as the curtain falls on Amazon Web Services' re:Invent 2021 (opens in new tab) event, Google Cloud (opens in new tab) has announced a series of new cloud regions, not just in the US, but around the world.
So far in 2021, the company says it has opened new regions in Warsaw (Poland), Delhi NCR (India), Melbourne (Australia) and Toronto (Canada). Next year, meanwhile, Google Cloud will build new cloud regions in Columbus, Ohio, Dallas, Texas, as well as in Israel, Germany, and Saudi Arabia.
Reporting on the development, ZDNet (opens in new tab) asserts that Google’s cloud computing (opens in new tab) subsidiary isn’t yet profitable and trails behind both AWS and Microsoft Azure (opens in new tab), despite soaring quarterly revenues.
Google, on the other hand, claims it’s more concerned about other things:
“As we add regions across the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, Google Cloud is committed to continuing to help build a more sustainable future and create opportunities for everyone,” the company said.
As it shares the details of its new upcoming regions, Google says it takes pride in the fact that it runs the cleanest (opens in new tab) cloud in the industry, pointing to its recently expanded portfolio of carbon-free solutions, and new initiatives designed to help its customers do their bit to save the environment.
