On Oct. 19, Google announced it was opening a Cloud region in Israel, which should enable private companies and government agencies to store data locally. The move was the result of Amazon and Google winning the Israeli government’s mega-cloud tender called “Nimbus” last year.
Physically, these operations will be performed via server farms (data centers) in Israel. To date, there are two such facilities – one in Petah Tikva and one in Modi'in. Reportedly, Google is interested in establishing additional farms in Bnei Zion and in Kfar Yehoshua.
