Regions and zones

Filestore instances live in zones within regions. A region is a specific geographical location where you can run your resources. Each region is subdivided into several zones. For example, the us-central1 region in the central United States has zones us-central1-a, us-central1-b, us-central1- c, and us-central1-f. For more information, see Geography and regions.

Some Google Cloud APIs, including the Filestore API, use the concept of locations, which can represent either regions or zones. For Filestore instances, locations map to zones.

To decrease network latency, we recommend creating a Filestore instance in a region and zone that is close to where you plan to use it. For example, if you plan to access the instance from Asia, then you should create it in one of the asia-east1 zones. Similarly, you will get the best performance by mounting Filestore file shares on clients in the same region.
