Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian On 10 Hot Topics: Deutsche Bank Technology Conference

Donna Goodison

Kurian speaks about Google Cloud’s four ‘flavors’ of partners and its differentiated platform offering, security posture, multi-cloud and vertical market strategies, and data analytics strengths among other topics.

Google Cloud’s Infrastructure Footprint

(Google Cloud has 27 cloud regions, 82 availability zones and 146 network edge locations.)

We continue to expand in markets, because as we see demand...in different markets, we are bringing our technology closer and closer by going to each country. We’ve expanded, for example, in India, in Melbourne (Australia). We had an announcement just earlier this week...with a big expansion in Germany, and you’ll see us continuing to broaden our regional footprint.

That said, even on top of that, as cloud becomes an important technology infrastructure in different countries, there are new regulatory requirements coming in — this notion of sovereign cloud, and the ability to require data to be located in each country. And we have capability on top of our cloud to provide this sovereign capability in many, many different parts of the world. That’s also broadening our addressable market, because we’re meeting these regulatory requirements.

Lastly, we’ve also introduced new products for organizations that need super-low latency. And they say, “Well look, I’d love to move everything to the cloud, but I have an application that’s running, for example, on a mainframe, (and) I want your analytic tools next to mine.” We’ve also introduced private cloud offerings that can now run inside our corporate data center. And so broadening our regional footprint, moving into private cloud or hybrid cloud with a new offering and then addressing sovereign requirements, these are all about continuing to expand our total addressable market and providing new opportunities for people to work with us and use our technology.
