Google builds Google Cloud regional service in South Africa
Last year, Google announced to invest $1 billion in Africa and build a submarine cable connecting Africa, thereby increasing the network transmission bandwidth in Africa, and will also provide low-interest rate loan services to small businesses. After assisting the development of more new African industries, Google announced the establishment of the first Google Cloud regional service in South Africa, and also caught up with the footsteps of Microsoft and AWS in setting up cloud platform services in Africa.
Since the Google Cloud regional service is set up in South Africa, it means that operators and developers in Africa can use Google Cloud services more closely. There is no need to connect and access Google Cloud service platform resources located in other countries and regions, so as to provide more complete cloud services in Africa and help more African companies and developers carry out digital transformation.
Google expects that by 2025, the output value driven by the Internet in Africa will reach about 180 billion US dollars. At the same time, the company also believes that there is many of innovation and development momentum in Africa, so the local Google Cloud regional service will further promote the development of the Internet industry in Africa, and also meet the privacy and data management regulations of various countries in Africa.
