The SpaceX company announced on Thursday that it would partner with Google in building a high-speed Internet network.
The idea is to provide remote computing access and services to customers, businesses and organizations.
Under the terms of the agreement, the ground stations of the Starlink satellites will be integrated with Google's data centers to facilitate access to the cloud and the Internet.
SpaceX is in the process of launching its satellite Internet service which should allow a high-speed connection without going through terrestrial infrastructures.
Guarantee "fluid, secure and fast" Internet access
“Combining Starlink's high speed and low latency with Google's infrastructure and resources will give organizations around the world the secure and fast connection they expect,” said Gwynne Shotwell, President and COO of SpaceX .
“We are proud to work with Google to provide this access.
According to Urs Hölzle, vice president of infrastructure at Google Cloud, the partnership will ensure customers "smooth, secure and fast access to the applications and services they need to keep their teams afloat."
This new offer should be available in the second half of 2021.
