Google Cloud has signed a five-year agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for providing access to a broad range of Google Cloud technologies including the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Google Workspace productivity tools. This technology agreement will help the DOE scale research efforts and ultimately drive innovation across DOE national labs and field sites.
To reduce friction and privot to innovation
With this agreement, DOE’s more than 100,000 employees and contractors can easily access Google Cloud and Google Workspace tools. According to the announcement, the agreement covers the catalog of GCP services, including Google Cloud Storage, BigQuery, AutoML, Cloud GPUs and TPUs, Google Kubernetes Engine, and TensorFlow.
Rocky Campione, Chief Information Officer for the U.S. DOE, during the NLIT Summit 2020, said,
“Our work with Google Cloud is helping us reduce the friction and pivot to innovation. With this agreement, we’re helping our labs focus on solving problems and get to a place where they can pick the compute, they need to get their jobs done.”
Additionally, DOE personnel can take advantage of Google Professional Services and Chrome Browser Support and will have access to future Google Cloud offerings when they become commercially available.
