YouTube moves to cloud amid Google's efforts to part from advertisers

Friday, 04. June 2021 17:15

Thomas Kurian, the head of Google's cloud division said that parts of the YouTube video service will now be moving from the advertising company's internal data center infrastructure to Google's cloud service, CNBC reported on Friday.

The move comes as part of Google's efforts to break independent from advertising operations. It is also aimed at setting an example for third-party companies to turn to Google's cloud services, given that YouTube is the second largest website.

"Part of evolving the cloud is having our own services use it more and more, and they are. Parts of YouTube are moving to Google Cloud," Kurian said in his interview, adding that Google Workspace, Waze and DeepMind are already using Google's cloud infrastructure.
