Google opens second Japan cloud region

Google has launched a second cloud region in Japan with three zones, offering a range of core products including Cloud Spanner, Big Query, and Google Kubernetes Engine. Located in Osaka, the latest region is the company’s seventh in Asia-Pacific and 20th worldwide, and part of the US$47 billion it has invested over the past three years to build up its cloud infrastructure. 

The Japan cloud region currently supports a clientele that includes Asahi Group, Yamaha, Sharp, and Mercari, said Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian in a post announcing the launch. He said there had been growing adoption of Google’s technology amongst companies in retail, games, financial services, and manufacturing since it opened its first Japan cloud region in Tokyo in 2016. 

With the addition of the second Google Cloud Platform, Kurian said its customers in the country would be able to enjoy lower latency and higher system availability. They also would have access to the vendor’s recently launched multi-cloud application management platform, Anthos, he added.

NTT Communications, Softbank, NEC, and Digital Advertising Consortium are amongst Google’s partner community in Japan. 

According to Kurian, Google is looking to add new Asian cloud regions in Seoul and Jakarta in the first half of next year.
