Since our inception in 1998, Google has lived on the leading edge of technology as we built out an incredible set of data centers around the world to power our many services.

Today, we’re bringing Google Cloud Platform closer to even more people and businesses.

New Compute Regions
We’re opening our new us-east1 region in South Carolina for Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Storage, and Google Cloud SQL. Google App Engine will be coming soon, we’ll have more on this shortly! This will open up our services to customers that were waiting on a US East Coast presence. Besides lowering latency to those on the US East Coast, the addition of the South Carolina location gives customers across North America the capability to build multi-region disaster recovery plans for their applications running on Google Cloud Platform.
Regional Storage GA
In line with giving customer choices to locate their resources where it best suits, today four Google Cloud Storage regional buckets are moving into general availability so that you can put storage buckets closer to your Compute Engine instances. You can learn more about regional buckets here. The following regions are moving to GA and are now open for use for Standard, Durable Reduced Availability, and Nearline Storage:
To learn more about service locations, please see the Cloud Datacenter Locations overview page. To learn how make the best use of our locations for your application needs, please see the Geography and Regions details page.
