On Friday, Google said its new location in Warsaw, Poland will help customers in central and eastern Europe benefit from its cloud services.
Cloud regions include infrastructure like data centers. Cloud computing allows businesses and consumers to store and access data, apps and software over the internet, instead of locally on a hard drive or server.
Last week, Google chief executive officer Sundar Pichai announced the company is investing $3.3 billion to expand its European data centers over the next two years.
The two biggest cloud services providers in the world, Amazon and Microsoft, have also been expanding their infrastructure in Europe, while Chinese technology giant Alibaba has opened new data centers in the UK and Germany.
