Google’s 14th cloud region opens for business

New Netherlands region, europe-west4, joins Belgium, London and Frankfurt in Europe.

Google has brought online its 14th cloud region powered by the company’s data centre in Eemshaven, the Netherlands.

Named Europe-west4, the region counts with three zones designed to let developers build new applications.

The new Netherlands region, europe-west4, joins Belgium, London and Frankfurt in Europe.

Dave Stiver, Product Manager, Google Cloud Platform, said: “The Netherlands region is located in our existing data centre in Eemshaven.

“Prior to opening this data centre two years ago, we had procured enough renewable energy on the Dutch grid to ensure consumption would be matched with 100% renewable energy from day one.

“This means that when you use this region to run your compute, store your data and develop your applications, you’re doing so sustainably.
