Rumor: Apple is moving part of its cloud business from AWS to Google’s Cloud Pla

According to unidentified sources familiar with a deal between tech giants Apple and Google, a portion of Apple’s cloud business is apparently being moved from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Google’s Cloud Platform.

The sources have revealed that Apple has seemingly decided to tap Google’s Cloud Platform for a part of its iCloud and services data because it is mulling some measures for the diversification of its iCloud infrastructure.

As such, since Apple appears to be simultaneously building out its own system to bring data stored on its millions of devices in house, Google’s gain of a high-profile customer like Apple for its Cloud Platform would probably unfold a short-lived advantage for the company.

Nonetheless, Apple’s rumored move to reduce its dependence on AWS by turning to Google for storing portions of its cloud business is, as of now, definitely a big win for the Google Cloud Platform, especially after Diane Greene has taken over as the new head of the company’s cloud business.

Meanwhile, Amazon has issued a statement implying that Apple had not defected. In its statement rebuffing Apple’s reported defection, Amazon said: “It’s kind of a puzzler to us because vendors who understand doing business with enterprises respect NDAs [non-disclosure agreements] with their customers and don’t imply competitive defection where it doesn’t exist.”
