Planet is expanding its partnership with Google Cloud to create joint solutions that combine high-frequency Earth observation data with cloud-based infrastructure to enable data-driven decision-making. This will enable public and private sector organisations to store, access, and utilise the Planet from anywhere using Google Cloud.
Under the new agreement and with the new combined offering, customers will be able to leverage Google Cloud’s global, flexible infrastructure and BigQuery to process large volumes of Planet data on-the-fly, build scalable workflows, and inform business decisions. Planet will continue to use Google Cloud services for its own internal data hosting and processing.
Last month, Planet entered into a merger agreement with dMY Technology Group, Inc. IV (NYSE:DMYQ), a special purpose acquisition company, to become a publicly-traded company.
