The advantages of Google’s new cloud platform region in Toronto

Google is creating a new Toronto-based cloud platform region. Get to know what this means and how you can leverage it to improve your operations drastically.

Google’s cloud platform already offers Toronto-based businesses the best tools and services on the market. IT managers prefer Google Cloud over popular alternatives such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure as Google provides cloud users with top-tier cybersecurity, low prices, redundant back-ups, live migration of virtual machines, stellar performance, and more. Now, Toronto business owners can get even better service and assistance thanks to the fact that Google is creating a cloud platform region in the Toronto area. The region, which will cover three zones, is set to be completed in 2021 and will begin by offering access to the company’s core Cloud Platform products such as Compute Engine Bigtable, App Engine, and Google Kubernetes Engine.

Once the Toronto-based cloud platform region is complete, local business owners will be able to:

  • Distribute cloud storage and apps to safeguard them against service disruptions
  • Better meet industry regulations and compliance requirements. The new platform will be a particular boon to highly regulated industries such as banking, public sector organizations and e-commerce providers.
  • Avail themselves of lower network latency since their chosen region will now be the same region they work in.

Given all that the new region has to offer, it’s no wonder that leading business owners are praising Google’s decision to create a new cloud platform region for the Toronto area. A senior vice-president at Banque Nationale aptly noted that the new platform region would significantly benefit the Canadian financial industry. The CTO of popular travel booking app Hopper also praised Google’s move, stating that it would enable their service to offer lower-latency travel and booking services to customers not just in Canada but also around the world. Payments Canada’s chief information officer pointed out that the new region would enable the company to modernize its infrastructure and create a digital platform for innovation.
