Google Expanding Cloud Network with Three New Undersea Cables

Google to build 3 underwater cables to expand its cloud business in battle with Amazon Microsoft Google's cables will allow it to expand the cloud business in Asia Latin America and the North Atlantic

Today, Google announced that it will be adding three undersea cables, as well as five new Cloud Platform regions, to its infrastructure in 2018.

In an effort to expand its cloud business and compete more effectively with rival Microsoft and Amazon, Google will build three new underwater fiber optic cables from the Pacific Ocean to the North Sea over the course of the next two years, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Google is also working with Facebook, subsea network manufacturer Aqua Comms, and industrial group Bulk Infrastructure on the Havfrue cable, which will connect the USA east coast to Denmark and Ireland.

Diane Greene, who heads up Google's cloud unit, often marvels at how much her company invests in Google Cloud infrastructure.

Google said its network now delivers around 25 per cent of worldwide internet traffic. The unique position gives the company a concerning amount of power.

The Curie Cable will connect Chile to Los Angeles and is being build as a private cable by Google.

Snow warnings for Northumberland extended to Thursday

The company has not specified the total amount of these investments but recalls having spent 30 billion euros in its infrastructure over the last three years.

Treynor stated that since the search giant commands control over the design and construction processes, it can fully define the technical specifications, streamline deployment and deliver service to the users and customers quickly.

Its datacentre expansions suggest adoption of Google's public cloud services is showing no signs of slowing, after 2017 saw the firm opening around one new region a month to keep up with demand.

The new connectivity is set to come from a set of three undersea cables that are expected to become operational in 2019. It will be the first new cable to land in Chile in nearly 20 years, and will become the largest single data pipe connecting the country, Google claims.

The cables will run thousands of miles, stretching from the U.S.to parts of Europe and South America. That cable, called Marea, was completed in late 2017.

These ventures increase Google's investments in subsea cables to 11 which they directly own, in addition to numerous others which they lease. The first of these cables is named Curie, which is a private cable that will connect Chile to Los Angeles. Havfrue, a consortium cable with Facebook, Aqua Comms and Bulk Infrastructure, will run the USA to Denmark and Ireland, coming online in late 2019.
