The new facility is the second Google Cloud region in Australia after Sydney and 11th to open in Asia Pacific. Google Cloud now has 27 regions worldwide. 

The new Google Cloud Melbourne region opens with three zones to protect against service disruptions, and offers a portfolio of key products, including Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and BigQuery.
