Cloudways believes in serving its customers in the best way possible. We love responding to your feedback whether it’s about new features, technology, additional datacenters or another IAAS provider. This is why, the previous year was filled with new additions to the Platform’s featureset.
Continuing on our quest to bring you the best, Cloudways is proud to announce the integration of GCE’s new Sydney, Australia based datacenter into its Platform. As it stands today, Cloudways supports about 48 datacenters from top providers in 25 plus key locations across the globe!
Talking about the Google’s plan for the Australian market, Colin Timm, director of Google Cloud for Australia and New Zealand said, “Google Cloud has real momentum in Australia and I’m looking forward to working closely with local businesses, partners and developers as the ecosystem continues to grow”.
Google’s investment in the Sydney datacenter promises 80% to 95% reduction in Round-Trip Time (RTT) latency when serving customers within Australia and New Zealand, as compared to datacenters in Singapore or Taiwan.
Cloudways is thrilled to be a larger part of the booming Australian ecommerce and startup environment. With 35% Aussie startups based in Sydney, we have always found ourselves at the heart of Australia’s business environment. We already had full support for two Sydney-based datacenters (one each from Vultr and AWS), but now with the inclusion of GCE Sydney datacenter, there is yet another opportunity for Aussie agencies and ecommerce businesses to leverage locally hosted applications.
