Google Cloud to expand infrastructure with new regions, submarine cables

Diagram shows three new subsea cable investments expanding capacity to Chile Asia Pacific and across the Atlantic

The cables will dramatically increase the amount of bandwidth on the globe-spanning network that interconnects its cloud data centers and improve performance for users of its cloud services. Stock value has moved between $813.42 - 1119.46 in last one year.

Google is also constructing, or taking part in constructing, three undersea cables, which will be commissioned in 2019. The company had already announced plans to link Singapore to Australia via Indonesia, Hong Kong to Los Angeles, and install two more cables from Brazil and Uruguay to Florida. Annual EPS Growth of past 5 years is 13.40%.

Google said in 2019 it will be involved with the commissioning of three sub-sea cables: Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the USA to Denmark and Ireland; and the Hong Kong-Guam Cable, connecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia.

Altogether, Google-owned infrastructure handles around 25% of the world's internet traffic, but in cloud computing the company remains in third place behind Amazon and Microsoft.

Other companies have built their own cables too: in September past year, Microsoft announced that it had completed construction of the Marea subsea cable, a joint project with Facebook and global telecommunications infrastructure company Telxius. With Curie, Google becomes the first major non-telecom company to build a private intercontinental cable. "Also, once the cable is deployed, we can make routing decisions that optimise for latency and availability", said Treynor. Google will use the cable to serve its customers and users across Latin America.

South Africa reached 292 for 7 as India missed two golden chances
For large sections of the day, India continued to bowl poorly and the fielders didn't set the world on fire either. Obviously, if you don't take wickets you don't get bull-headed and believe things will get better from next time.

Google's Cloud platform is already up and running in thirteen regions including Tokyo, Taiwan, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, London, Belgium, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo, Oregon, Iowa, Northern Virginia, and SC.

The "Havfrue" cable, named after the Danish word for mermaid, will be built with Facebook and run from the U.S.to Denmark and Ireland. Google is partnering to build this one with RTI-C and NEC to improve its coverage in the Pacific region.

While these are new submarine cables, Google is hardly a novice in the undersea cabling arena. These investments are created to help improve connectivity around the world, and will help Google expand its reach and the availability of its cloud services.

Google now has direct investment in 11 cables, including those planned or under construction.
