Google provides two dedicated interconnects to Equinix’s and CoreSite’s local LA1 data centers

Google Cloud’s recent area in Los Angeles is at present online, the firm reported today. This isn’t precisely a surprise, given that Google had earlier reported a July introduction for the area, but it is a big step for Google, which at present boasts five cloud regions in the United States.

It was only three years before that Google started its second U.S. region and, while its speed was very slow to enlarge its physical cloud footprint, the firm at present features 17 areas around the world.

When it originally reported this new region, Google placed it as the ideal region for the entertainment industry. And while that is exactly true, I am sure we will see many of other firms utilizing this new region, which features three accessible zones, to increase their existing distribution in Google’s other West Coast region in Oregon or as section of their total global cloud strategy.

The recent region is introducing with all the core Google Cloud compute services, namely App Engine, Compute Engine and Kubernetes Engine, also all of Google’s standard database and file storage tools, involving the newly introduced NAS-like Cloud Filestore service.

For businesses that have a physical presence near to L.A., Google also provides two dedicated interconnects to Equinix’s and CoreSite’s local LA1 data centers.

It is worth nothing that Microsoft, which has long favored a strategy very fast introducing as many regions as able to be, already provided its users a region in Southern California. AWS does not presently have a presence in the region, although, unlike Google, AWS does provides a region in Northern California.
