When we launched the Netherlands region earlier this year, we said the third zone would be along shortly. We opened up the region with two zones as soon as we could to fulfill the growing demand from our customers in Benelux. Now, we’re happy to announce the launch of a third zone (europe-west4-a) in the region. This is the 45th GCP zone globally and now, like other GCP regions, this third zone enables developers to build highly available services that meet the needs of their business.
The third zone includes all standard GCP services and we’re announcing the availability of the following new services in the region: Cloud Spanner, Cloud Bigtable, Managed Instance Groups, and Cloud SQL.
We’ve got partners in Benelux ready to assist customers with design, deployment, migration and maintenance needs. Partners include: Rackspace, Xebia, ML6, PWC, Accenture, incentro, qlouder, fourcast, godatadriven and g-company.
As an official training partner, g-company is dedicated to helping companies organize their processes more intelligently by offering highly interactive Google Cloud Platform (GCP) training and supporting companies as they build tailor-made applications on GCP to transform their businesses. g-company led the implementation of the Netherlands-based online travel company, Travix, in a company-wide migration to Google Cloud.

We’re excited to see what you’ll build next on GCP!
