Google Cloud Warsaw starts on April 14. The capital of Poland will be the ninth European region constituting the pillars of Google’s cloud services on the old continent.
Warsaw joins Google Cloud as a region available to customers from Central and Eastern Europe. From April 14, three independent centers with full computing infrastructure will provide access to the full catalog of Google cloud services. These include Compute Engine, App Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner and BigQuery.
Google is launching three separate centers right away to ensure service consistency in the event of a failure. From the moment the new region is launched, service providers using Google Cloud will be able to use the SaaS model (software as a service).
The launch of the new Google Cloud Warsaw region has been announced in September 2019. It was possible thanks to a joint initiative of Operator Chmury Krajowej (OCHK) and Google Cloud. The company rents server space, and OCHK acts as an intermediary in the sale of services. Initially, the cooperation agreement was signed for 10 years.
