Sorry if this is a copyediting item but the end of this section says " [...] know about these in order to design a system that will degrade gracefull [sp] in the event of some catastrophe (like that earthquake we mentioned)." There is no prior mention of an earthquake or natural disasters in the text. There are some future mentions a few pages later in the text.

I'd to add the datacenters locations (3.1) seems outdated. According google https://cloud.google.com/about/locations/#regions-tab they have added two new regions in Singapore and Australia. Also the number of cities does not match.

According this,

also AWS and Azure info should be updated.

Sorry about that ! Looks like this was an issue of rearranging sections. I've removed the reference since it definitely shows up later on.

Thanks for the pointer. I've updated the text to reflect new counts for Azure and AWS, as well as GCP which has added quite a few regions since we last pushed out Ch3 !
