Google Cloud partners with DCP with new cloud region in Poland underway
Google Cloud has announced that it is forming a strategic partnership with Poland’s Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP) to help Polish businesses to take advantage of cloud.
The computer application platform revealed that as part of its partnership, DCP, which was founded jointly by PKO Bank Polski and the Polish Development Fund, will become a reseller of Google Cloud services in Poland and will build managed services capabilities around Google Cloud.
Digital technologies are becoming the next growth engine for the Polish economy, according to Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian, and with this DCP partnership, the company will be able to provide advanced infrastructure and software to Polish enterprises.
“Together, our goal is to accelerate cloud adoption by large and small businesses alike, across all industries,” said Kurian.
“Over the next five years we’ll train experts to help Polish businesses on board to the cloud, as well as provide insights and strategic advice on how companies can maximize the benefits of their cloud deployments.
The company have also announced that it will be opening a Google Cloud region in Warsaw, Poland as part of its commitment to the country and broader Central and Eastern Europe.

“With this new region, Google Cloud customers operating in CEE will benefit from low latency and high performance of their cloud-based workloads and data,” added Kurian.
The region will have three zones to protect against service disruptions, and will launch with the company’s portfolio of key products, including Compute Engine, App Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and BigQuery.
“This is an important moment for the Polish economy. We are very proud to partner with Google Cloud and to see them bring a new cloud region to Warsaw,” said Michał Potoczek, CEO of Domestic Cloud Provider.
“Global enterprises are already building their competitive advantage on Google Cloud and now we will be able to offer customers in Poland the same advanced technology available worldwide,”
“We believe in a multi-cloud strategy. A Google Cloud region, together with our own infrastructure, will allow us to build hybrid services which will bring even more value to our customers.”
Earlier this year, Google CEO Sundar Pichai visited Warsaw where he announced Google’s commitment of $20m for digital skills programs across the CEE region.
