Google and Telefónica have announced a powerful new alliance to foster the country’s digital transformation through the creation of a new cloud region in Spain, which will take advantage of Telefónica’s infrastructure in Madrid.
This plan involves a very significant investment in data processing centres based in our country, at a time when economic recovery is on the agenda of all actors in society.
With the future opening of this Google Cloud region in Spain, customers will benefit from the opportunity to use Google Cloud products with low latency and high performance, integrate Telefónica’s cloud communications and services with the services of the new cloud region, and have the possibility to store their applications on local public cloud servers.
Designed for high availability, the region will have 3 zones to protect against service disruption and will be launched with the standard Google Cloud Platform product suite. This investment will make it easier for businesses and governments to access the full potential of cloud computing based on Google Cloud artificial intelligence technologies, while maintaining the highest standards of security, data residency and compliance, particularly those with specific data storage requirements.
