Yesterday, Google launched its cloud “ French-style with the opening of its France region.
As Anthony Cirot points out to Challenge, the American giant does not have its own datacenters: “ Our servers will be co-located with several French suppliers “. However, no details are given on the area or the names of its partners.
To our MagIT colleagues, Franck Zerbib (a Google France executive) adds that the offer “ French-style » only concerns IaaS and PaaS services, not SaaS: « Indeed, this does not concern Workspace, Gmail, Google Drive, etc. These SaaS services are managed on a specific infrastructure model, in data centers built by Google, so they will not be hosted locally on colocation surfaces “.
