Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) is one of the world’s leading public cloud operators. Such feat is only possible when the right infrastructure is in place on a global scale.
Today, Google, Alphabet’s largest subsidiary, operates data centre sites in 25 regions with the availability of 76 zones and 144 network edge locations.
The company is on a rapid expansion path, with new regions being built in Doha (Qatar), Toronto (Canada), Melbourne (Australia), Delhi (India), Paris (France), Milan (Italy), Santiago (Chile), Madrid (Spain) and Turin (Italy).
Whilst those new regions are not online, many of Google’s cloud facilities are some of the largest and greenest data centres of the moment.
