The company is considering new centres in Kuwait and the UAE, Thomas Kurain, Google Cloud chief executive, said in an interview to The National.

The competition with Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud space is very tight, with Google spending billions of dollars trying not to fall behind. Google’s expansion to the Middle East is in line with its global strategy of expansion, as the company is willing to develop 14 more cloud regions around the world.

The Middle East is a key market for Google and one of the fastest growing regions for its business. Kurain hopes that the trend for growth will continue with Google increasing its regional presence.

Google already has data centres in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and a recently build cloud region in Israel and now is thinking where to open more centres.

There are many discussions going on in different countries. We haven’t disclosed that yet but we are obviously looking at multiple places; Kuwait, UAE and others as potential areas,

said Kurain.

Since the pandemic, spending on cloud technology is on the rise globally. Cloud adoption is instrumental in cutting operational costs, boosting profits and addressing pandemic-induced market disruptions.
