Overview of Public Cloud Regions

I frequently find myself Googling around to try to figure out which public providers have facilities in a particular region.  I finally created a document to keep track.  I’ll share it here in the hope that it is helpful to others. I’ll try to maintain the original document as well.

And here is a silly map (because Google Apps makes it easy to create these).  If you like it, I’ll make a better one that highlights the providers:
