Google Cloud has arrived in Poland with a new datacentre region in Warsaw.
The vendor claims the new cloud hub, which will consist of three separate datacentre "zones", will mean less latency and higher performance for CEE customers.
In addition, Google has announced that it has forged a partnership with a firm called Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP), which is now an authorised reseller of Google Cloud services in Poland, and will look to build new managed services capabilities around the cloud vendor's technology.
"Together, our goal is to accelerate cloud adoption by large and small businesses alike, across all industries. Over the next five years we'll train experts to help Polish businesses onboard to the cloud, as well as provide insights and strategic advice on how companies can maximise the benefits of their cloud deployments," said Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian in a blog post announcing the news.
Google now has 20 datacentre regions across the world, and six in Europe. The US firm recently pledged €3bn towards growing its European datacentre footprint, after a recent expansion in Finland.
