Google selects Africa Data Centres for Cloud Interconnect

Google has selected Africa Data Centres as the first location for a Google Cloud Interconnect in Africa.

"Hyperscaler cloud providers have been eyeing the region for some time, with Amazon opening its first African cloud data centre in South Africa in April 2020," said Africa Date Centres CEO Tesh Durvasula.
 
How about actually building a proper Google Cloud region in SA?
 
Other than a hilariously unintuitive admin console, which is an issue hardly unique to Google anyway, what's wrong with GCP?
There is a reason why it is the 1st ever cloud but has such a tiny usage footprint, a very distant 3rd place. Yes you have the reason right, but its not only the unintuitive admin console, everything is unintuitive and much less dev friendly, and because Google failed to become a big cloud player, they are also more expensive.

AWS existed before GCP though?

I'd use GCP ahead of Azure, but certainly not ahead of AWS.

Google was 1st, they invented cloud basically.

GCP is not an option at all because of economy of scale and the inferior dev experience.

And I`ll never use AWS instead of Azure. They are both good but Azure is better technically, and slightly cheaper overall. Azure delivers a superior dev experience. AWS and GCP does not even have the ground breaking tech that I need.
