Google ups investment in cloud infrastructure

Google ups investment in cloud infrastructure

Even after this major expansion is done, Google will continue to build out its Cloud network, so even though this build-out will take a couple of years, this won't be the last time we hear of Google bringing data centers to new regions and injecting money into undersea cable projects. It will serve Google users and customers across Latin America. The second cable will connect the Denmark and Ireland. A third cable will run from Hong Kong to Guam.

Despite jumping in head first, Google is not entering the undersea cable business enthusiastically.

Google Cloud Platform's infrastructure plans for 2018. But when the search giant wanted to expand its cloud capabilities in both Australia and South America, "there weren't a lot of great options". The first of these cables is named Curie, which is a private cable that will connect Chile to Los Angeles.

"Owning the cable ourselves has some distinct benefits", Treynor Sloss wrote. These investments are created to help improve connectivity around the world, and will help Google expand its reach and the availability of its cloud services.

"Also, once the cable is deployed, we can make routing decisions that optimize for latency and availability", reads another excerpt from the same January post.

'From the get-go, PLCN is created to accommodate evolving infrastructure technology, allowing us to independently choose network equipment and refresh optical technology as it advances, ' the Google team wrote.

"These new investments expand our existing cloud network".

Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has invested $30 billion in infrastructure over the past three years, said its Netherlands and Montreal regions will open in the first quarter of 2018, followed by Los Angeles, Finland, and Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, Google is building Havfrue with Facebook, Aqua Comms and Bulk Infrastructure, and working with RTI-C and NEC on the HK-G cable system. Private ownership also will allow Google to deploy and commission the cable more quickly.

Those who live in these regions, according to Google, should be excited.

Google now has 11 direct investments in cables, which help maintain service in an area in case of server malfunctions. It has already built several undersea cables as part of a consortium of companies, and will add two more consortium-driven cables over the next few years connecting Denmark to Ireland and Hong Kong to Guam.
