Proximus and Google Cloud will soon offer sovereign cloud services in Belgium and Luxembourg
A strategic partnership to be the first to offer ‘Google distributed Cloud Hosted’ -a disconnected sovereign cloud solution – to governments, regulated companies and international organizations in Europe
Proximus and Google Cloud today announced a five-year agreement to offer sovereign cloud services in Belgium and Luxembourg. This partnership will provide solutions for governments, regulated businesses and international organizations to safely roll out sensitive, mission-critical activities and provide them with advanced digital sovereignty controls.
Under this agreement, sovereign cloud services will support disconnected operations through Google distributed Cloud Hosted, eliminating the need for connectivity to Google Cloud to manage infrastructure, services, APIs, or tools. Google Cloud sovereign solutions are designed to meet all data, operational and software sovereignty requirements, giving customers greater control and transparency over sensitive data hosted in the cloud.
Data sovereignty is vital for European and international organizations that are digitizing their operations and leveraging the latest cloud innovations. Sovereign cloud solutions will enable public and private organizations to accelerate their digital transformation plans and leverage the latest technology, without compromising the sovereignty of their data and systems.
Proximus will work with LuxConnect, a provider of data center services managed by the Luxembourg state, to develop these sovereign cloud services in Belgium and Luxembourg.
