February 1st 2018, Google has officially announced the launch of its cloud computing platform (Google Cloud) in Montreal. Google’s fifteenth Google Cloud Platform region and first region in Canada is now open to build applications and store data, and promises to significantly improve latency for GCP customers and end users in the area. The new Montréal region (northamerica-northeast1), joins Oregon, Iowa, South Carolina and Northern Virginia in North America and makes it easier to build highly available, performant applications using resources across those geographies. Hosting applications in the new region can improve latency by up to 90% for end users in Montréal, compared to hosting them in the closest region. Please visit www.gcping.com to see how fast Montreal is for yourself.


The Google Cloud Platform provides all the necessary tools that will allow you to develop your next great international renown application. Take advantage now of the following tools:
