A reorganization at Google Cloud puts its technical management team under the direction of CEO Thomas Kurian. The move reportedly is to help grow Google Cloud’s market share.
Google Cloud continued to trail Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud infrastructure services market during the second quarter, according to Synergy Research Group. Its share was 10%, while Amazon had 33% and Microsoft had 20%.
Google Cloud’s Brad Calder
Hölzle had overseen parts of the day-to-day product engineering efforts for Google Cloud.
The reorganization was outlined internally by Google Cloud. It comes as the company has scaled its revenue, focused on industry sales and landed large enterprise accounts under Kurian, ZDNet said.
Google Cloud’s Urs Hölzle
Calder becomes the leader of Google Cloud‘s product and engineering team as vice president of engineering product for Google Cloud/Technical Infrastructure. He joined Google Cloud in 2015.
Hölzle will continue as senior vice president of technical infrastructure and Google Fellow. He will also continue to collaborate and work closely with Kurian as well as Google CEO Sundar Pichai. However, his focus will be on long-term architecture and infrastructure across Google.
When we reached out to the company, Google Cloud sent us the following statement:
“As Google Cloud grows, we regularly evaluate the best organizational structure to better scale our business and provide a world-class experience for our customers.”
Pandemic-fueled adoption translated into more business in 2020 than ever before for Google Cloud. The company also brought on more indirect resellers than the previous year.
