The global network of data centers in various Google Cloud locations covers more than 61 zones and 130 points across 35 countries worldwide. Every aspect of Google Cloud hosting is designed to deliver perfect service (from redundant cloud regions to high-bandwidth connectivity via subsea cables) to a global clientele, including 24x7 emergency supports. It is the same highly provisioned and low-latency network that powers products like Gmail, Google Search, and YouTube, ensuring exceptional user experience and high performance.
Google Cloud’s data center network is designed for maximum reliability and uptime with client workloads being securely distributed across multiple Google Cloud locations, availability zones, points of presence, and network cables to provide strong built-in redundancy and application availability. Strict adherence to data privacy and security standards has earned Google Cloud services the trust of third-party auditors.
The company also provides excellent disaster recovery measures, where the data access automatically shifts to another Google Cloud location/data center in case of an emergency, making it possible for the users to work uninterrupted. Emergency backup generators are installed to power data centers even in the event of a power failure.
