The new cloud-based storage and analytics portal will be capable of processing around 50 terabytes of data a day within the cloud
Vodafone Group Plc – the mobile operator and Alphabet Inc’s Google Cloud have entered a strategic partnership to jointly develop data services that includes cloud-based storage and analytics portal, the mobile operator said on Sunday.
In Britain, Spain and the US, about 1,000 workers will be asked by both companies to create “Nucleus” – a new cloud-based storage and analytics portal which will host Vodafone’s data.
The new cloud-based storage and analytics portal will be capable of processing around 50 terabytes of data a day within the cloud, Vodafone said in a statement.
“Both companies will drive the use of reliable and secure data analytics, insights, and learning to support the introduction of new digital products and services for Vodafone customers simultaneously worldwide”, the statement added.
Both companies will also develop a system called ‘Dynamo’ as part of the six-year agreement. This system can extract and transport data across different countries where the British-based telecom company operates.
Looking to move huge amounts of data to the cloud in the future, the two companies also want to sell consultancy services to other multinational businesses, according to the FT report.
