Google is way behind Amazon in the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) market but it fully intends to catch up.

The company recently added a new zone to its Cloud Platform infrastructure business with the opening of the Asia-Northeast region in Tokyo. This brings Google's total number of regions around the world to six, adding to the three existing regions in th eU.S., one in Belgium and one in Taiwan.

What this means is Google is able to offer busineses lower latency and o verall better performance in terms of data-transfer speeds. During a beta test, according to Google, its customers in Japan experience 85 percent lower latency when compared to when linked to the Taiwan region. 

The Tokyo Cloud Region supports Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Persistent Disk, Google App Engine Standard Environment, Google Container Engine, database and analytics services, and core networking and security services, including Cloud VPN and Google Cloud DNS.
