Google Cloud Platform available in LA region

Tuesday 17 July 2018 | 11:57 CET | News
Google announced that the Los Angeles Google Cloud Platform region is officially open for business. Business customers can now store data in Southern California. The LA cloud region, us-west2, is the company's seventeenth overall and its fifth in the US. Hosting applications in the new region can significantly improve latency for end-users in Southern California, and by up to 80 percent across Northern California and the Southwest, compared to hosting them in the previously closest region, Oregon, Google said.
