A new Google Cloud region is coming to Israel! Here’s why it’s revolutionary
For the past 20 years, Israel has been recognized globally for its booming tech scene. Yet, because of the country’s small size, there were no local Cloud regions, limiting the viability of Cloud migration for the public sector, traditional organizations, and highly-regulated industries.
Thanks to Project Nimbus, Google will soon be launching a local Cloud region in Israel – aiming to drive significant change in the technology landscape of the public sector, enterprise, and SMB markets in the country. Here’s what this history-making move means for the Israeli tech industry:
Better service for local Google Cloud customers
Google’s global network of Cloud regions is the foundation of the Cloud infrastructure built to support customers. Worldwide, there are 25 Cloud regions and 76 zones delivering in-demand services and products for Google Cloud’s enterprise and public sector customers.
With each new Google Cloud region, customers get access to secure infrastructure, smarter analytics tools, and an open platform. Having a region located in Israel – instead of relying on regions abroad – will make it easier for local customers to serve their users faster, more reliably, and securely.
“Even before Project Nimbus, we have experienced accelerated adoption from organizational customers. Nimbus will accelerate this even more and will initiate the organizational Cloud revolution in Israel. Google heavily invests in Israel, including in building the local Cloud infrastructure.” – says Shay Mor, Head of Government, Defense, and Public Sector, Google Cloud
This landmark move is expected to accelerate innovation for customers of all sizes, and Israeli tech companies who require Google Cloud services can expect improved access and exponential growth opportunities in the near future.
Moti Gutman, CEO at Matrix says, “We are very excited that leading vendors like Google are investing and launching a local cloud region in Israel. This will make a significant change in the technology landscape of the public sector, enterprise, and SMB markets in Israel. Matrix is proud to be a major part of the transition to the cloud,”.
When it launches, the Israel region will deliver a comprehensive portfolio of Google Cloud products to private and public sector organizations locally. Injecting innovation into the public sector will boost the efficiency of government services (for citizens) and public systems as a whole. Public Cloud powers the digital revolution that will simplify processes, help improve service and cut costs, as well as provide insights, and facilitate collaboration between government branches and public sector segments. Google Cloud makes it easy to start a service on the Cloud, and easily migrate to on-premise or a different public Cloud entirely.
Automated landing zone infrastructure
Are you ready for the new region? The launch of Israel’s new Google Cloud region will require more organizations to build an infrastructure of automated landing zones. CloudZone is proud to offer this service as the growing demand for Cloud services in Israel continues to expand. Tech companies will be able to leverage data to solve their biggest business challenges, build and innovate faster in any environment, and collaborate at any time and place with strong and secure security.
