Mobile operator Vodafone Group Plc and Alphabet Inc's Google Cloud entered a strategic association to jointly develop data services, Vodafone stated.

About 1,000 workers will be asked by both firms to create "Nucleus", a new cloud-based storage and analytics portal which will host Vodafone's data.

Nucleus will be capable of processing around 50 terabytes of data a day within the cloud, Vodafone stated in a statement.

"Both companies together will drive the use of reliable and secure data analytics, insights, and learnings to support the introduction of new digital products and services for Vodafone customers simultaneously worldwide," the statement added.

As part of the six-year agreement, both companies will also develop a system called 'Dynamo', which can extract and transport data across different countries where the British-based telecom company operates.

According to the report, the two companies also want to sell consultancy services to other multinational businesses looking to move huge amounts of data to the cloud in the future.
