Google Cloud and Shopify, a leading global commerce company, has announced an expanded partnership that will enable Shopify’s more than 1.7 million merchants to have access to Google Cloud’s technology across a broader set of regions.
As a part of this partnership, Shopify will leverage Google Cloud’s global infrastructure to reduce latency and give shoppers more personalized and engaging experiences.
Google Cloud’s network of 25 regions and 76 availability zones around the world provides lower latency and higher reliability, allowing Shopify to provide a fast, highly-available service to merchants around the world.
Google’s Global Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) will make it easier for Shopify to write and deploy applications that span multiple regions.
“Our partnership with Google Cloud will mean that more Shopify merchants around the world have access to competitive computing technologies that would otherwise only be available to enterprise brands,” said Farhan Thawar, VP of Engineering, Shopify.
“We know that during the COVID-19 pandemic from mid-March to mid-Sept, 84% of consumers have shopped online. Improved store speed and performance will give our merchants a competitive edge by allowing them to better serve buyers where they are, and it will do so in the most energy efficient way possible through Google Cloud.”Click below to share this article
