DCP BECOMES GOOGLE’S POLISH RESELLER
Google has announced its plan to open a new cloud region in Poland and a reseller partnership with Poland’s Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP) to accelerate adoption.
DCP was founded jointly by PKO Bank Polski and the Polish Development Fund, and the new partnership with Google Cloud will make Chmury Krajowej (simply DCP) a reseller of Google Cloud services in Poland and will build managed services capabilities around Google Cloud.
“With this DCP partnership, we will be able to boost our support for Polish enterprises, providing advanced infrastructure and software that suits their needs,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “Together, our goal is to accelerate cloud adoption by large and small businesses alike, across all industries.”
The cloud giant stated that the opening of a new Google Cloud region in Warsaw, forms part of its commitment to Poland and broader Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
The facility will have three availability zones, and will launch with Google Cloud portfolio of key products, including Compute Engine, App Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and BigQuery.
“This is an important moment for the Polish economy. We are very proud to partner with Google Cloud and to see them bring a new cloud region to Warsaw. Global enterprises are already building their competitive advantage on Google Cloud and now we will be able to offer customers in Poland the same advanced technology available worldwide,” said Michał Potoczek, CEO of DCP.
“We believe in a multi-cloud strategy. A Google Cloud region, together with our own infrastructure, will allow us to build hybrid services which will bring even more value to our customers.”
Over the next five years, Google said it will train experts to help Polish businesses onboard to the cloud, as well as provide insights and strategic advice on how companies can maximize the benefits of their cloud deployments.
The giant currently operates six cloud regions in Europe, and plans to invest €3bn ($3.3bn) over the next two years in expansions.
