Thursday, March 03, 2016 Louis Decuypere

Last week there was some exciting news published from our partner Google Cloud Platform as they announced that Spotify is moving onto their infrastructure.

Spotify will now rely on the Google's virtual machines and big data components to serve its 75 million users, to stream their 30 million songs, and manage the 2 billion playlists. This GCP+Spotify partnership shows the huge value and capabilities of the managed data services of Google Cloud, and without a doubt other major data players will follow in the coming months and quarters.
