Google Cloud today announced the launch of its new cloud region in Dallas, Texas, as it continues to expand its data center footprint around the world. The new region marks the company’s 11th region in North America. Globally, the company now offers 34 regions, all of which have three zones for additional redundancy.
With this, Google now provides a local region for the growing Texas tech ecosystem and, as always, existing Google Cloud users can now offer lower latency access to their users in the region. The company also noted that the Dallas area will provide existing users with additional capacity and flexibility to reach users in the US
The new region provides access to all standard Google Cloud products, including Compute Engine, google Kubernetes engine, Cloud Storage, Persistent Disk, CloudSQL and Cloud Identity.
As of now, Google has three additional regions in the works: Tel Aviv, Israel; Damman, Saudi Arabia and Doha, Qatar.
