Google Sets Up Oz Cloud Platform

Google is claiming major reductions in round-trip latency for services used by Australian corporate customers after it set up a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) facility in Sydney.

The GCP facility joins a number of others across the Asia-Pacific region, including in Singapore, Tokyo, Mumbai and Taiwan. There are also many others in the northern hemisphere including London, Finland, Netherlands and Frankfurt in Europe; and LA, Oregon, Iowa, Carolina and North Virginia in the US.

Google bills GCP as “cloud made easy”. It claims the system enables users to tap into big data and machine learning and scale up “vast cloud performance” without having to worry about servers or network settings, and predicts a 40-80 percent reduction in latency.

Down Under customers already making use of GCP are said to include Woolworths, the State Government’s Service NSW agencies, Monash University and Woodside.
