Google Cloud Platform Opens its Netherlands Data Center

Google Cloud Platform has announced that their new Netherlands data center is now online and available to customers.  It becomes the forth region available in Europe, following on from Belgium, London and Frankfurt.  It also marks the 14th region that is available globally for GCP.

The new data center, located in Eemshaven, is 100% powered by renewable energy from its opening.

The new Netherlands region will offer all of the functionality of Google Cloud Platform with quick access to those in the region.  These areas include security, Big Data, Compute, storage and network.

The new region is part of a larger growth plan Google has for GCP and their data backhaul.  This plan includes new undersea cables as well as more data centers to help more developers around the world access the platform for their app and data needs.

If you are interested in GCP, be it in the Netherlands, elsewhere in Europe, or here in the US, contact your Google partner to get more details.  For general information on the platform and what it can offer, head to the Goggle Cloud Computing site to get the details.
