Google announces Montreal region for Google Cloud Platform
Google Cloud Platform continues to rapidly expand our global footprint. Today, we announced we will launch a Google Cloud Platform region in Montreal.
Not only are we working hard on bringing you new products and capabilities, but we want our users to access them quickly -- wherever they may be. That’s why we’re announcing Canada’s first Google Cloud Platform region in Montreal. This new region will deliver lower latency for customers in adjacent geographic areas, increased scalability and more disaster recovery options.
By opening a Google Cloud Platform region in Montreal, our goal is to allow our Canadian customers to take advantage of the low latency and high performance afforded by the Google Cloud Platform.
These regions are built upon Google’s networking backbone, capturing Google’s innovation and scale. Google has an extensive worldwide networking presence and you can follow our locations page for updates on the availability of additional services. Also, for more information about how to deploy your resources, visit our zones and regions page.
In the last few years, Google Cloud Platform has grown to serve a diverse set of customers from mobile gaming studios to traditional enterprises, all of whom depend on our infrastructure to reach end-users across Canada and beyond. We look forward to welcoming businesses to a Google Cloud Platform region based here in Canada and we’re excited to see what they build with our platform.
