If Cloud continues to succeed and becomes comparable in size to ads business, which seems to be the positive expectation, do you think TK can be the new CEO and make rest of the Google the biggest customer of Cloud?

    Absolutely. You can see what Travis did with Uber. I think Google can greatly benefit from his experience, vision and leadership.

    TK will never be CEO because google cloud is expected to fail ( or has been failing already)

      Any data supporting "google cloud is expected to fail ( or has been failing already)" ? I have used the ML offerings of cloud and they are pretty nice.

    Genuinely curious why you think Cloud business is succeeding. Any recent numbers or articles?

    Enterprises are not 100% all in on one cloud. Companies like Netflix that were born in the cloud are different. Traditional enterprises are now moving to the cloud and represent future growth for hyper cloud providers. 80%+ enterprises still haven’t moved out of the data center. These Enterprises are hybrid and multi cloud focused and they will use various clouds. There is plenty of market opportunity out there for Google to catch up. TK and an Enterprise first mindset will be needed. Also, when I use cloud, I’m referring to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

    Did you just say Google Cloud is succeeding? Jeez you're really drinking the company Koolaid. GCP is a failure and they've been given a deadline of 3 years to turn it around or they're shutting it down.

      Looks like the article was quickly replied to by G spokesperson on the same afternoon. They said there was never a plan to pull back from cloud business.

      I think G will never back out of cloud business because there are many internal tools built over the years that can be monetized using GCP business. It’s also a good way to keep building new tech that can be useful in the future. For a company of G’s size, additional capex of 1B per quarter today might not be a big deal. If at all they are really incurring so much. And cloud market itself is growing, so this could be an investment to grow their revenues.

      Guys. He’s from Oracle. There’s only Larry and God. And you know the difference between both? God doesn’t think he’s Larry. So now go TK.
