Google now offers cloud services from Germany

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 | Gadgets

Companies in Germany are still facing skepticism from cloud services – also because of legal concerns. According to Amazon and Microsoft now offers also Google Cloud services from Germany. Infrastructure chief Urs Hölzle emphasizes the technical advantages.

          Google will offer business customers of its cloud services future apps and the storage of the data in Germany. The new "cloud region" will be set up in a data center in Frankfurt / Main. "We are responding to a frequently expressed customer request," said Google manager Urs Hölzle, who is responsible for the technical infrastructure at the Internet company, on Tuesday of the German Press Agency (dpa). Companies in Germany, Switzerland and Austria will be able to offer a significantly better network connection compared to the other cloud regions. Google is reacting with the new offer but also to the continuing security concerns of the customers, the business with Cloud offers in many cases slow down. Hölzle emphasized that Google did not have access to customer data in all cloud regions. These are encrypted and thus not accessible to the Internet group. The Google cloud in Germany uses an own basic network (backbone) for an optimal network connection, but is also well connected to the world's largest Internet node DE-CIX in Frankfurt.
