Mumbai (Maharashtra), 17th Jan 2023: Google has announced a major expansion of its cloud services in India, with a new push to build additional infrastructure in the country.
The move is aimed at meeting the growing demand for cloud services from businesses and organizations in India, and will see Google invest heavily in data centers and other infrastructure in the country.
The expansion will include the opening of new data centers in Mumbai and Delhi, which will provide additional capacity for Google’s cloud services, including its popular G Suite productivity tools, Google Cloud Platform, and Google Cloud Storage. The company has also plans to expand its local sales and support teams to help customers take full advantage of the new infrastructure.
Google’s push into India comes as the country’s economy continues to grow and businesses are increasingly looking to take advantage of the scalability and flexibility of cloud services. The move is also a part of Google’s strategy to expand its cloud services in Asia, which is one of the fastest-growing regions for cloud adoption.
The company’s CEO Sundar Pichai said in a statement, ” India is a key market for Google and we are committed to investing in the country to help drive digital transformation and support the growth of local businesses.” He added, “Our expansion will not only create jobs and boost economic growth, but also help more organizations in India take advantage of the power of the cloud.”
Google’s expansion in India is also expected to benefit Indian businesses by providing them access to the company’s cutting-edge technology and services, which will help them to be more competitive in the global market. The company is also investing in training and education programs to help Indian developers, engineers and businesses to gain the skills they need to work with its cloud services.
The move will also help to bridge the digital divide between urban and rural areas in India, by providing more people access to the internet and the benefits of technology, which will help to drive digital inclusion and economic growth.
This news is welcomed by the Indian Government as the country is looking to promote a digital economy, and the move by Google to invest in the country will support the government’s efforts to drive digital transformation and create jobs.
