Google will be the cloud provider in SpaceX

Reuters: Google has won a deal to provide cloud services to its SpaceX , which launched a series of satellites Starlink to provide high speed internet.

SpaceX will set up ground stations in Google's data centers that will connect to the satellites , enabling fast and secure internet services through Google Cloud, as stated by Google.

This service is expected to be available in the second half of 2021.

The deal comes at a time when demand for cloud computing services has grown, with players such as Microsoft Corp and Inc. dominating the market. Cloud companies have also taken advantage of the telecommunications sector, due to the growing demand for 5G connectivity.

Google's cloud computing accounts for about 7% of its total revenue since the last earnings report.

Last October, Microsoft won a similar deal from SpaceX to connect the platform Azure cloud with Starlink.

The private SpaceX, known for its reusable rockets, increases production of satellites for Starlink, a growing fleet of hundreds of internet-radiating satellites that Musk hopes will yield enough to help fund SpaceX's interplanetary goals. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
