Google Cloud’s new region in Los Angeles is now online, the company declared today. This isn’t precisely a revelation, given that Google had beforehand announced a July launch for the region, but it’s a big step for Google, which now boasts five cloud regions in the United States. It was only three years ago that Google opened its second U.S. region and, while it was slow to develop its physical cloud footprint, the company now features 17 regions around the world.
When it first announced this new region, Google placed it as the model region for the entertainment industry. However we can see a handful of other companies use this new region, which features three availability zones, to augment their existing deployments in Google’s other West Coast region in Oregon or as part of their generally global cloud strategy.
The new region is beginning with all the core Google Cloud compute services, like App Engine, Compute Engine and Kubernetes Engine, as well as all of Google’s standard database and file storage tools, that include the latest NAS-like Cloud Filestore service. For businesses that have a physical presence close to L.A., Google also offers two dedicated interconnects to Equinix’s and CoreSite’s local LA1 data centers.
