Google partners with Elon Musk’s, Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, has teamed up with Google. With the combination of the two, it is now possible for the satellite to have high speed internet and a secure connection. Elon Musk is the CEO of electric car maker Tesla. His satellite-to-Internet service company is SpaceX. This is called a ‘starlink’.
Starlink makes it easy to provide Internet services to any corner of the world. Now with the merger with Google it will no longer provide users with high speed internet without any interruption. Under the agreement, Elon Musk space development company will launch high-speed broadband internet through Google Cloud.
Google will therefore set up StarLink ground stations in Google data centers to connect to StarLink satellites. The tech giant said the service will be available to customers in the second half of 2021. According to a recent revenue report, Google Cloud Business accounts for 7% of total revenue.
Cloud services are often required by organisations having broad footprints, like public sector agencies, businesses with presences at the network edge, or those operating in rural or remote areas. Google Cloud will now try to leverage Starlink’s high-speed broadband Internet for its infrastructure to support such activities for its enterprise customers.
Under the partnership, SpaceX will locate Starlink ground stations within Google data centre properties. The company’s more than 1,500 low-Earth-orbit satellites will then enable secure, low-latency delivery of data through Google Cloud.
Google partners with Elon Musk’s, “Google Cloud’s high-capacity private network will support the delivery of Starlink’s global satellite Internet service, bringing businesses and consumers seamless connectivity to the cloud and Internet,” Google stated in a recent blog.
