Google Cloud welcomes PayPal

Thursday 5 March 2020 06:39 CET | News

Google Cloud has announced that PayPal will be among the first company to move key components of its payments’ infrastructure to Google’s cloud region.

The announcement was made during Google Cloud release of its latest data centre. The new cloud region, Google’s 22nd globally, will be based in Salt Lake City and is designed to provide customers in the western US with better, more reliable cloud services, according to Finovate.

The companies first teamed up in 2017, when PayPal became an authorised payment method for Android Pay (which later became Google Pay). When choosing Google’s Cloud, PayPal considered managing seasonal payment transaction volume surges and keeping regional expansion costs low.

The partnership will also allow PayPal to establish a migration pattern that can be used to convert more on-premises infrastructure to the Google Cloud – at the Salt Lake City data centre or to any other Google Cloud platform region.
