Google is expanding its own cloud calculating infrastructure in five distinct areas, and intends to build its undersea cables. The search giant has a direct investment in 11 cables.
Extends cloud computing infrastructure
According to the search giant, its own Netherlands and Montreal cloud computing center will be usable in the first-quarter of 2018, accompanied by the centers in Finland, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Google deploys its cloud computing resources into different regions which are further divided into zones. These zones may have one or more data centers from where customers can run their providers. As of now, Google has 15 regions.
No two areas are linked to each other and the same holds for different zones in the exact same region as well, notes ZDNet. Google believes in deploying software across multiple zones and areas to save users from sudden failures.
Undersea wires — they help
Google intends to build three undersea cables by 2019 to carry on rivals Microsoft and Amazon, in addition to expand its cloud companies in different regions. Google’s underwater wires would take different paths, including a from Los Angeles to Chile and another from the United States into Denmark and Ireland. The next line will go from Hong Kong to Guam.
The cable running from Chile into L.A. has been termed Curie cable (afterwards famous scientist Marie Curie) and would serve cloud customers across Latin America.
Another cable, dubbed as Havfrue and operating from the United States into Denmark and Ireland, would serve North Atlantic customers. Google is growing this cable in partnership with Facebook, although it’s going to be constructed by TE SubCom.
In a website article, Ben Treynor Sloss, vice president of Google’s cloud platform, said, “Together, those investments further improve our community — that the world’s largest — that by some reports delivers 25 percent of global internet traffic.”
Based on Capital.com, Paypal will use Google’s infrastructure and network to enhance their processes.
Treynor stated that since the search giant controls control over the design and construction processes, it may completely define the technical requirements, streamline deployment and deliver service to the consumers and customers immediately. Further, Treynor noticed that after the wires are operational, they can easily make routing decisions to optimize for latency and availability.
Strengthening cloud platform in India
Separately, Google can also be strengthening its cloud platform in India. The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) region, which is currently live in the nation, will promote more local firms to adopt Cloud. If it comes to Cloud adoption, the search giant is quite optimistic about India, that is home to over 50 million SMBs (small and medium companies).
Speaking to IANS, Mohit Pande, Country Manager-India, Google Cloud said, “The introduction of the Cloud region opens up new opportunities for many new partners who will benefit from creating their solutions on Google Cloud.”
India’s Hike Messenger has ported all its messaging application and community, in addition to its front-end visitors on to Google Cloud. After the conclusion, the messaging program has seen a 25-30% drop in latency, together with enriching the user experience. Further, Google Cloud is enabling the messaging program to reduce its own go-to-market time and energy.
