Spotify and Google have just entered a new partnership to move Spotify’s popular music streaming service’s from its current infrastructure over to Google’s Cloud Platform.
This is a big deal. At Spotify we are obsessed with providing a streaming experience that feels as though you have all the music in the world on your phone. Historically, we’ve taken a traditional approach to doing this: buying or leasing data-center space, server hardware and networking gear as close to our customers as possible. This approach has allowed us to give you music instantly, wherever you are in the world.
The benefits of this new partnership will be high performance for users and low cost for the company.
Spotify is no stranger to deals as it recently announced Spotify being available on the Amazon Echo and also announced the acquisition of cord project and sound wave.
