Google Cloud has just announced the opening of its new region in Warsaw, Poland. The facility is expected to support Polish customers and those in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

The opening of the Warsaw cloud region is a fulfilment of the plan announced in September 2019, which is accompanied by a partnership with Poland’s Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP), a reseller of Google Cloud services in Poland that will also build managed services capabilities around Google Cloud.

“Google Cloud is here to support Polish businesses, helping them get smarter with data, deploy faster, connect more easily with people and customers throughout the globe, and protect everything that matters to their businesses. The cloud region in Warsaw offers new technology and tools that can be a catalyst for this change,” said Magdalena Dziewguć, Country Manager, Poland, Google Cloud.

“Our ongoing commitment to Poland goes beyond our newest Cloud region. Google Cloud’s engineering center in Warsaw is a leading cloud technology hub in Europe and continues to grow each year, employing highly-skilled specialists that work on our global cloud computing solutions. We are also expanding our office in Wrocław, hiring experts to help companies migrate to cloud.”

The new Google Cloud region opens with three availability zones (or data centers) and the facility is expected to provide customers operating in Poland and the wider CEE with lower latency and high performance of their cloud-based workloads and data.

“We want to build the bank of the future, and to do that, we need the most innovative technology. By choosing Google Cloud, we believe we will have access to the tools we need, now and in the years to come,” said Adam Marciniak, CIO of PKO Bank Polski.

Poland’s Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP) also known as Chmury Krajowej was founded jointly by PKO Bank Polski and the Polish Development Fund.

The new Warsaw region joins the existing 24 Google Cloud regions and also offers a portfolio of products including Compute Engine, App Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and BigQuery.
