Although the Google Cloud Edition physical location is probably less important for latency to your users than some other VPS instances, you still may want to choose a location closest to your users.

With that in mind, when you get to the portion of the GCE Feeder Setup that asks you which IP Region you want to use, here are their locations: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/regions-zones/

Google Cloud Data Center Locations
  • Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA (us-central1)
  • St. Ghislain, Belgium (europe-west1)
  • Changhua County, Taiwan (asia-east1)
  • Sydney, Australia (australia-southeast1)
  • The Dalles, Oregon, USA (us-west1)
  • Ashburn, Virginia, USA (us-east4)
  • Moncks Corner, South Carolina, USA (us-east1)
  • São Paulo, Brazil (southamerica-east1)
  • London, UK (europe-west2)
  • Frankfurt, Germany (europe-west3)
  • Jurong West, Singapore (asia-southeast1)
  • Tokyo, Japan (asia-northeast1)
  • Mumbai, India (asia-south1)
  • Montréal, Canada (northamerica-northeast1)
  • Netherlands (europe-west4)
  • Hamina, Finland (europe-north1)
  • Los Angeles, California (us-west2)
  • Hong Kong (asia-east2)

More information on what systems are available in the zones (each of the locations above has 3-4 "zones" (a,b,c, and f) can be found here: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/regions-zones/#available

Just as an example. the zones in us-central1 use Intel Xeon E5 - Sandy Bridge - by default (until 5 APR 2019 when they are upgraded to Xeon E5 v3 [Haswell]) while us-west1 already uses Broadwell and even Skylake CPUs.
