Google today announced two additions to the Google Cloud. The new regions are Seoul, South Korea and Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Google will have 23 global regions in 2020.
According to Google, Seoul region will open in early 2020, followed by the Salt Lake City region shortly thereafter. Seoul will be Google Cloud’s eighth region in Asia Pacific.
“Google Cloud's expanding infrastructure in Salt Lake City is a welcome development as our growing business continues to scale to meet the needs of over 250 million customers,” said Dan Tournian, PayPal’s Vice President of Employee Technology & Experiences and Data Centers. “This new region will enable enhanced availability and performance for our customers, when every millisecond counts.”
