Google Cloud Switzerland Launch
Switzerland is the 6th region in Europe (europe-west6) and the 19th region of the Google Cloud Platform worldwide to offer computing, storage, big data and network services. It is connected to Google’s well-equipped, secure and private network to provide global access to all services of the Google Cloud Platform.
Launch Event and Google Cloud Services Platform
Of course, this has to be celebrated with a big launch event in Zurich. The VSHNeers are on site at StageOne and follow interesting talks and speakers such as Urs Hölzle – one of the first 10 Google employees – who talks about the Google Cloud Services Platform. With the Google Services Platform (GSP), companies can create their own applications and cloud services that can be operated both on-premise and in the Google Cloud. Other IT professionals from SAP, Google, Credit Suisse and Balgrist University Hospital will be leading the day.
VSHN and Google Cloud / GKE
As the first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) in Switzerland, we are of course already very familiar with the Google Cloud and GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine).
We are pleased to announce that Google is now offering a Swiss Cloud. The decision is a very positive statement for the location Switzerland, which makes us as a Swiss company happy and many of our customers have been waiting for. For all those who already work with Google Tools and the Google Cloud, the step of a Swiss Google Cloud is of course very exciting for VSHN as a Managed Service Provider with many Swiss customers.
We are looking forward to the further development of how the Swiss Google Cloud will be accepted and how Zurich will continue to assert itself as a European IT heavyweight in the international environment.
