Google Cloud is entering into a strategic partnership with Poland’s Domestic Cloud Provider (DCP), to launch Cloud services in the region.

Under the terms of the agreement, 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.

For Google Cloud, this will enable them to boost its support for Polish enterprises, providing advanced infrastructure and software that suits their needs. Additionally, over the next five years Google Cloud will train experts to help Polish businesses on board to the cloud, as well as provide insights and strategic advice on how companies can maximise the benefits of their cloud deployments. 

“This is an important moment for the Polish economy,” said Michał Potoczek, CEO of Domestic Cloud Provider. “We are very proud to partner with Google Cloud and to see them bring a new cloud region to Warsaw. 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.” 

The company also confirms plans to open a Google Cloud region in Warsaw, Poland. With this new region, Google Cloud customers operating in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) will benefit from low latency and high performance of their cloud-based workloads and data. Designed for high availability, the region will have three zones to protect against service disruptions, and will launch their portfolio of key products, including Compute Engine, App Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and BigQuery.

According to Google Cloud, Poland is in a period of rapid growth, is accelerating its digital transformation, and has become an international software engineering hub, all of which supports the continued investment in the region.
