Google Cloud announced that it plans to expand to Malaysia to meet growing demand for cloud services in Asia Pacific.

Other regions that Google Cloud is eyeing includes Thailand, New Zealand, Berlin, Dammam, Doha, Mexico, Tel Aviv, and Turin.

When they launch, these new regions will join its 34 cloud regions currently in operation around the world — 11 of which are located in Asia Pacific.

According to Google Cloud, enterprises across industries, startups, and public sector organisations across Asia Pacific will benefit from key controls that enable them to maintain low latency and the highest security, data residency, and compliance standards, including specific data storage requirements.

Google Cloud said in a statement,

“From retail and media & entertainment to financial services and public sector, leading organisations come to Google Cloud as their trusted innovation partner. The new Google Cloud regions in Malaysia, Thailand, and New Zealand will help our customers continue to enable growth and solve their most critical business problems. We will work with our customers to ensure the cloud region fits their evolving needs.

 

These new cloud regions represent our ongoing commitment to supporting digital transformation across Asia Pacific. We continue to invest in expanding connectivity throughout the region by working with partners in the telecommunications industry to establish subsea cables — including Apricot, Echo, JGA South, INDIGO, and Topaz — and points of presence in major cities.”
