Google (GOOGL.O) said Thursday that it has won a contract to provide cloud services to SpaceX in Elon Musk, which launched a number of Starlink satellites to provide high-speed Internet. SpaceX will set up a ground station in Google’s data center that connects to the Starlink satellite, enabling fast and secure Internet services via Google Cloud, search giants said. The service will be available to corporate customers in late 2021, the company said. The deal takes place when players such as Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) dominate the market and demand for cloud computing services surges. Cloud companies are also leveraging the telecommunications sector, thanks to the surge in demand for 5G connectivity.
As of the latest revenue report, Google’s cloud business accounts for about 7% of total revenue. Last October, Microsoft won a similar deal from SpaceX to connect its Azure cloud computing platform to Starlink. Known for its reusable rockets and astronaut capsules, the private SpaceX is increasing Starlink’s satellite production. Starlink is an increasing constellation of hundreds of Internet beam satellites that Mask wants to generate enough revenue to fund SpaceX’s interplanetary targets.
