April 09, 2019 / siliconangle
Google LLC today said it’s adding to its cloud infrastructure with new data center facilities in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Seoul, South Korea, that will help it scale up its capacity to cater for its growing customer base. The new cloud regions are scheduled to open in early 2020, and will each offer three Availability Zones plus access to the full gamut of Google’s cloud products and services, the company said. The first to go online will be the South Korean facility, which will be the company’s eighth overall in the Asia Pacific region. Google said the South Korean region is necessary to support the “tremendous customer adoption” of its cloud services in that country.
