Nokia signs multiyear deal to migrate its data center infrastructure to Google Cloud

Networking equipment provider Nokia announced that it has signed a multiyear agreement to use Google as its cloud infrastructure provider. Nokia said it will migrate its global data centers and servers, as well as various software applications, onto Google Cloud infrastructure over an 18- to 24-month period.

Nokia said the deal reflects the company’s operational shift toward a cloud-first IT strategy. The cloud move is also meant to help Nokia manage its digital operations and expand collaboration capabilities for its employees working remotely amid the pandemic.

Also: 5G could generate trillions in benefits in the next decade. So why aren’t companies moving faster with it?

 Under the deal, Nokia will use a suite of Google Cloud products and services, with its infrastructure and applications running in the public cloud or via SaaS model. The companies have also worked out a customized migration schedule that will allow Nokia to exit its

UPDATE: Oct. 13, 2020, 4:01 p.m. EDT You can now save an extra $100 on top of the already generous Prime Day deal of $500 off.

SAVE $600: For Prime Day, the ultra-high-end Razer Blade 15 Advanced Gaming Laptop is $600 off. 


PC gamers know this truth better than anyone else: Gaming laptops are kind of ugly sometimes. More often than not, they’re super chunky and packed to the brim with RGB lights and designs that just aren’t everyone’s style (no judgment here if it does happen to be your style). It can really be a deterrent from ever buying one.  

It’s a lucky day,

Wisconsin seeks new deal with Foxconn

The deal with Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, was announced by President Trump at a White House ceremony, and he traveled to Wisconsin in 2018 for the groundbreaking.

Foxconn signed a contract with Wisconsin under then-Gov. Scott Walker (R) in 2017 to earn nearly $4 billion in state and local tax incentives for a $10 billion display screen manufacturing campus and plant that would employ up to 13,000 people. But Walker lost in 2018 to Democrat Tony Evers, who ran as a critic of the project.

After the deal was signed, Foxconn said it was downsizing the factory. The facility envisioned now would make smaller thin-film transistor liquid crystal display screens for cellphones and other devices, rather than the larger screens that were first proposed.

Foxconn spokeswoman Myranda Tanck had no immediate comment.

Wisconsin tells Foxconn no tax credits without new deal

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin told Foxconn Technology Group on Monday that it won’t qualify for billions of dollars in state tax credits unless it strikes a new deal for a scaled-back factory complex.

State officials have told Foxconn since last year that it would not qualify for the tax credits without revisions to its 2017 contract because the scope of the envisioned factory has been reduced. President Donald Trump heralded the original deal as a sign of a revitalized American manufacturing economy, calling the envisioned plant “transformational” and the “eighth wonder of the world.”

The deal with Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, was announced by Trump at a White House ceremony and he traveled to Wisconsin in 2018 for the groundbreaking.
