SiteGround, the largest independent web hosting platform trusted by the owners of more than two million domains, announced today that it will be moving a big part of its infrastructure to Google Cloud.
“At SiteGround, we are always on the lookout for new partners that could help us utilize the latest hardware and the newest technologies and allow us to keep upgrading the speed and reliability of our hosting service,” said Tenko Nikolov, CEO at SiteGround. “It has become clear to us that operating on Google Cloud brings a lot of advantages and opportunities for our business development and we are thrilled to officially announce it.”
Google is known for maintaining one of the fastest and most powerful state-of-the-art networks, which will result in higher speeds for SiteGround’s clients’ websites. It also provides SiteGround with the ability to quickly add new locations outside of the regions where it currently operates.
SiteGround will be using Google’s SSD persistent storage, meaning website data will not be stored on a single physical machine and is not lost if hardware fails. Additionally, storing backups and optimizing restore processes will be quicker and more efficient with easier scaling and resource management: SiteGround has the ability to scale resources such as CPU, RAM, storage and more with greater ease and flexibility.
Lastly, Google matches 100 percent of the energy consumed by their global operations with renewable energy and maintains a commitment to carbon neutrality, which aligns with SiteGround’s commitment to sustainability.
“Google Cloud is dedicated to providing businesses with industry-leading infrastructure with data-powered innovation. We are excited to work with partners like SiteGround who customize our technology to the needs of a wide segment of webmasters such as small business owners, bloggers, web agencies among other.” said Ben Faes, Managing Director for Google Cloud Southern Europe & Emerging Markets.
Many of SiteGround’s new customers from the U.S. and Europe are already activated in Google’s U.S. and Netherlands Cloud locations, and existing customers in these locations are in the process of being moved.
