Google Cloud will invest aggressively to expand its footprint and ramp up operations in India.
It is also recruiting senior level talent and expected to open more Cloud regions in the country, including one planned in Delhi, which is expected to be operational by 2021.
Google Cloud is focussed both on traditional enterprises like financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceutical companies who are trying to build platforms themselves as well as digital natives.
A part of Google’s USD 10 billion investment in India over the next five-seven years will go towards data centres.
The company has also seen start-ups migrating to its platform from other providers.
Google Cloud has introduced a new security feature for public sector companies and regulated industries, called ‘confidential computing’, which provides encryption to their workloads on the cloud when it is at rest, in transit and while it is being processed.
