Google Cloud has opened a new cloud region in Milan in partnership with TIM.
In its blog post, Google stated that the europe-west8 region is the first in Italy, while its second region is proposed to be launched within the next few months.
Additionally, Google forecasts that by 2025 its cloud regions in Milan and Turin will bring 65K new job opportunities in Piedmont and Lombardy and generate a revenue of €3.3 billion.
Meanwhile, Google’s counterparts, i.e., AWS and Microsoft, already have their cloud regions in Italy.
With the launch of Google’s cloud region in Italy, the cloud service provider has 34 regions and 103 zones in 200+ countries.
Fabio Fregi, Google Cloud Italy’s Country Manager talking about the two new Italian cloud regions said,
The addition of two Italian cloud regions, starting with Milan, is not only part of our commitment to aid in the digital recovery of Italy but to continue expanding our digital footprint.
Built in collaboration with Telecom Italia (TIM), the new Milan region aims to provide innovative public, private, and hybrid cloud services to help Italian companies of all sizes and across all industries accelerate digital transformation.Fabio Fregi’s statement about two new Italian cloud regions | Source: Google Blog
