Secure, efficient data centers

Google Cloud’s global network of data centers—among the world’s most secure and energy-efficient facilities—run your services 24x7 with the highest possible speed and reliability. Our data centers employ layered security and built-in redundancy and fault tolerance, and strictly limit employee access.

Fast, reliable global network

With a highly provisioned, low-latency network—the same network that powers products like Gmail, Google Search, and YouTube—your traffic stays on Google’s private backbone for most of its journey, ensuring exceptional user experience and high performance.

Multilayered security

We protect your data through progressive infrastructure layers that deliver defense-in-depth. Google Cloud’s adherence to data privacy and security standards has earned the trust of third-party auditors who attest that our infrastructure and operations keep user data more secure and compliant.

Designed for high availability

Our data centers and network architecture are designed for maximum reliability and uptime. Your workloads are securely distributed across multiple regions, availability zones, points of presence, and network cables to provide strong built-in redundancy and application availability.
