Space X continues to sign partnerships with other technology companies to advance the deployment of the necessary infrastructure to get the global Internet access service up and running through the use of Starlink satellites, in order to bring applications and services to rural and remote areas of the planet.

Signing months ago with Microsoft to use Azure Space as part of the service infrastructure now adds the signing of the second-largest cloud infrastructure agreement with Google Cloud.

This agreement will enable Space X to bring its own ground stations next to Google Cloud data centers as vital infrastructure with which to securely transfer information from data centers to satellites and vice versa.

In this way, the approach will allow customers of companies and other organizations to enjoy data transfer quickly, with low latency, completely secure, and reliable in the future.

As part of the agreement, early Google Cloud and Starlink business customers will be able to start enjoying Starlink's satellite Internet service sometime in the second half of this year as they go.

Starlink now has a fleet of more than 1,500 satellites in orbit, to which an undetermined number of new Starlink satellites will be regularly added, which will be sent into space via Falcon 9 rockets.

For Urs Jolzle, Senior Vice President of Infrastructure, Google Cloud:

We are happy to partner with SpaceX to ensure that distributed footprint organizations have smooth, secure, and fast access to the critical applications and services they need to keep their teams running.

And for Gwynne Shotwell, President and Chief Operating Officer of SpaceX:

The combination of Starlink's high-speed, low-latency broadband with Google's infrastructure and capabilities provides global organizations with the secure and fast connection modern organizations expect (...) We are proud to work with Google to provide this access to companies, public sector organizations and many other groups operating around the world.

Starlink aspires to be the leading provider of satellite Internet access, although in front of you will meet Amazon with your Kuiper Project, through which it also aims to offer Internet access service through a fleet of orbiting satellites.
