Alphabet Inc-owned Google is working to expand its cloud infrastructure in India, as it sets up a new cluster of data centers in New Delhi to better serve the rising demand in the region – a market with huge growth potential.
The Google cloud region in New Delhi and environs is the US-based tech firm’s second in India, bringing Google’s structures in Asia Pacific up to ten.
Speaking during a preliminary press conference ahead of an official launch on Thursday, Thomas Kurian CEO of Google’s cloud services, said: “We have seen enormous growth in demand for Google cloud services in India so expanding our footprint in a new cloud region gives us the ability to offer more capacity for growth over many years,”
“It’s a large commitment from us in capital and infrastructure investment and it’s designed to allow us to capture the opportunity that we see around growth,” he added.
This infrastructure is expected to help disaster recovery and guarantee low latency for several state-run corporations in India and New Delhi in particular.
Some of Google Cloud’s clients in India include local social network ShareChat, e-travel firm Cleartrip, and HDFC Bank.
