Google Cloud commits to AU with new Melbourne region

2019 research from Boston Consulting Group highlights that cloud adoption within Australia may create 26,000 jobs and account for US$108 billion (AU $163 billion) of GDP in the next five years, but this can only be achieved with the right infrastructure.

Therefore, more effort is needed to nurture talent development, boost cloud literacy, create supportive regulatory frameworks, and encourage higher adoption in the public sector.

Google Cloud Asia Pacific managing director Rick Harshman and A/NZ Google Cloud vice president Mark Innes say that the new Melbourne cloud region will launch with three zones to protect against service disruption, and Google’s key cloud products.

“Our Google cloud regions in Australia will play an instrumental role in facilitating this growth, and will empower businesses and governments to securely and sustainability digitally transform and create value for years to come,”
