Vodafone Group and Google Cloud entered a strategic partnership to jointly develop data services.
About 1,000 workers in Britain, Spain and the United States will be asked by both companies to create “Nucleus”, a new cloud-based storage and analytics portal which will host Vodafone’s data.
Nucleus 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 secure data analytics, insights, and learnings to support the launch of new digital products and services for Vodafone customers simultaneously worldwide.
As part of the six-year agreement, both companies will also develop a system called Dynamo, which can extract and transport data across different countries where the British-based telecom company operates.
