Vodafone collaborates with Google Cloud on data analytics.

  • As part of the six-year contract, Vodafone will transfer data from its servers to Google Cloud.
  • Nucleus will be the new cloud-based storage and analytics portal for Vodafone’s data.

The Financial Times announced that Vodafone Group PLC and Alphabet Inc.’s Google’s cloud division are preparing to collaborate on data services, citing interviews with representatives from both firms. According to the Financial Times, about 1,000 employees from the United Kingdom, Spain, and the United States will be tasked with developing “Nucleus,” a new cloud-based storage and analytics portal that will house Vodafone’s data. Inside the cloud, Nucleus will be able to process about 50 terabytes of data every day.

Vodafone will move data from its servers to Google Cloud as part of the six-year deal.

Vodafone and Google will also develop a Dynamo device, which will extract and transport data through the telecoms company’s various countries of operation.

In the future, both companies plan to sell consulting services to other global corporations looking to transferring huge amounts of data to the cloud.

Nucleus will process 5,000 separate data feeds, according to Vodafone’s chief technology officer, Johan Wibergh.
