Google Cloud is establishing a new region in Los Angeles.

The new region — a geographic location for the Google Cloud Platform that users can choose to meet their latency, availability and durability requirements — will debut in July. It's Google's fifth cloud region in the United States, joining regions in Oregon, Iowa, South Carolina and Northern Virginia. 

“A lot of our short-form projects pop up unexpectedly, so having extra capacity in [a] region can help us quickly capitalize on these opportunities,” said Tom Taylor, The Mill’s Head of Engineering. “The extra speed the L.A. region gives us will help us free up our artists to do more creative work. We’re also expanding internationally, and hiring more artists abroad, and we’ve found that Google Cloud has the best combination of global reach, high performance and cost to help us achieve our ambitions.”
