“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.”
“Team Utah is delighted to welcome a Google Cloud region to Salt Lake,” said Theresa Foxley, President & CEO of EDCUtah, a private, non-profit organization that works with state and local governments and private industry to attract and grow competitive, high-value companies and spur the expansion of local Utah businesses. “This new region will improve cloud computing infrastructure for businesses operating in Utah, giving them faster access to Google Cloud products and services and bringing technical innovations even closer to where they do business. We look forward to welcoming the new region to Salt Lake City in 2020.”
Organizations operating in the western US will soon be able to distribute their workloads across three western regions–Los Angeles, Oregon, and soon Salt Lake City–providing even higher connectivity in the west.
Google Cloud regions bring the cloud to organizations around the world, helping drive growth, differentiation, and innovation. In the coming weeks, the Osaka, Japan region will open to customers, and the Jakarta, Indonesia region is expected to launch in the first half of 2020.
