Malaysia become one of the Google Cloud regions in Asia Pacific

KUALA LUMPUR: Google Cloud, the cloud computing system offered by Google LLC announced plans to add cloud territories in Malaysia to meet the growing demand for services in the Asia Pacific.

Malaysia will be among three additional countries, in addition to Thailand and New Zealand, to join the other six Google Cloud regions previously announced, namely Berlin, Dammam, Doha, Mexico, Tel Aviv, and Turin.

However, Google did not detail where the region would be located in Malaysia.

When it launches, the new region will join Google’s 34 cloud regions currently operating around the world, 11 of which are in Asia-Pacific, and Google claims they are delivering “high-performance services” running on the “cleanest cloud in the industry”.

Vice President of Google Cloud Asia-Pacific, Karan Bajwa said the new regions in Malaysia, Thailand and New Zealand will help customers to continue to enable growth and solve their most critical business problems.

“We will work with our customers to ensure that the area is suitable for their needs.

“This new cloud region represents our ongoing commitment to support digital transformation across Asia-Pacific,” he said.

Bajwa noted that Google will continue to invest in expanding connectivity across the region by working with partners in the telecommunications industry to establish submarine cables — including Apricot, Echo, JGA South, INDIGO and Topaz — and a presence in major cities.

Meanwhile, International Data Corp (IDC) expects total cloud service spending in Asia Pacific excluding Japan to reach US$282 billion (RM1.26 trillion) by 2025
