Google expanded its cloud computing reach across Europe and the Middle East to strengthen its presence in the region. The EMEA region is important for Google Cloud in recent years, and the company has big plans to make the most out of its strong standing, whilst also planning to expand its reach.
Google Cloud EMEA
This expansion plan includes a number of new cloud regions in Europe, including locations in France, Italy, Poland, and Spain, and new controls to make sure Google Cloud platforms conform to changing data sovereignty laws on the continent.
Chris Ciauri, President, EMEA, Google Cloud, speaking at the start of the company’s Next OnAir EMEA virtual event, said,
“At Google Cloud, we have seen first-hand how important it is to keep our cloud up and running – enabling remote collaboration and scaling to meet changing customer demands. We continue to help businesses and their employees, as well as governments and schools, collaborate and learn during these challenging times.”
The business has recently signed a number of new partnership deals in EMEA, including a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Google Cloud and UK Crown Commercial Service (CCS), the UK Cabinet Office’s executive agency and a trading fund.
