Last month, Google announced the company was expanding its global footprint with the introduction of new regions. This followed on the introduction of new regions throughout the year. Google Cloud now has 24 regions, 73 zones in 17 countries, and continues to deliver high-performance, low-latency cloud services to its customers. Their push is both impressive and good news for Google Cloud customers. The new regions Google introduced were in Chile, Germany and Saudi Arabia. It was great to see the introduction and addition of new regions in the Middle East with more to come in Qatar later this year.
This latest Google push ties in closely to the interest HYCU continues to see with partners and customers alike especially around our Cloud Services Provider Program and innovation with the purpose-built backup as a service for Google Cloud, HYCU for GCP. As HYCU’s go-to-market is 100 percent focused on our partners, their success is ultimately our success. And, with new Google regions expanding in the Middle East, we’re excited and proud of our latest Premier Partner iSolutions, based out of Dubai.
Today, we announced that iSolutions has joined our Cloud Services Provider Program and will be making HYCU available for its more than 600 customers across North Africa and the Middle East. iSolutions is a Premier Google Cloud partner and one of the largest systems integrators in the region. HYCU is now available to help its customers continue to focus on bridging the digital gap between conventional business practices and transformational technology frameworks. iSolutions’ customers now have a service for on premises backup and recovery, data migration to the cloud, data protection and cloud disaster recovery as a service as well as hybrid-cloud backup consolidation.
Abhay Pandita, General Manager, iSolutions, noted in today’s announcement that, for his team, it was important to choose the right partner with the right solutions to help their customers with their digital transformation and data center modernization efforts. He added, “as a leading systems integrator having a significant and powerful cloud-native service that is easy to deploy and manage will make a difference for our current and future customers on their Google Cloud journey.”
We truly believe there is a better way to manage, protect and recover mission critical data across clouds. In particular, the solutions we provide for public cloud platforms like Google Cloud, are significantly different and provide our customers and partners like iSolutions with a powerful way to migrate, manage, protect and recover data in the event of a natural or unforeseen catastrophe.
