'Cloud as a Service'
Bangalore, October 1 2016: Google today announced that it will open a new Google Cloud Region in Mumbai. Expected to be live in 2017, the India cloud region is aimed at offering Google Cloud Platform services to Indian developers and enterprise customers.
The local region will help make Google Cloud Platform services even faster for Indian customers, enhancing differentiators that are already motivating companies to choose Google as their partner.
With more than one billion end users, Google Cloud has gained significant traction in India and across the world. Globally, key customers already leveraging the benefits of Google Cloud Platform include Snap Inc (formerly SnapChat), Niantic Labs (Pokemon Go), Telus International, and Evernote. In India too, thousands of customers including major brands like Wipro, Ashok Leyland, Smartshift by Mahindra & Mahindra, Dainik Bhaskar Group and INshorts.com are building on the Google Cloud Platform.
Google made the announcement about the India Cloud Region at an event in San Francisco, called Horizon. Google also unveiled G Suite. Previously called Google Apps for Work, G Suite encompasses a set of intelligent apps - Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, and more - designed to bring people together, with real-time collaboration built in from the start.
Google Cloud Platform takes the infrastructure, machine learning and networking services used to power Google services and makes them available to businesses and developers to build high performance applications and data analysis at a low cost. As India’s startup community continues to grow, Cloud Platform provides the full stack of services to build, test and deploy their applications.
In addition to its focus on Indian customers, Google is continuing to build its partner ecosystem to support customers as they move to the cloud. In India, Google already has deep partnerships with a multitude of born-in-the-cloud partners including Searce Co-Sourcing, Cloud Cover, PowerUp Cloud and MediaAgility as well as global partners like Wipro, TCS, Tech Mahindra, PwC and Cognizant. The opening of the cloud region opens up newer opportunities for several new cloud partners who will benefit from building their services on Google Cloud.
