Thomas Kurian, formerly of Oracle, will be the new head of Google's cloud branch. He replaces Diane Greene, who leaves the company after a tumultuous year.
Last year, Greene was confronted with an internal revolt that prevented Google Cloud from accepting orders from the US Army, especially in the field of artificial intelligence and image recognition.
Also, Google Cloud did not participate in a Pentagon contract because of 'collision with company values'.
A salient detail is that Kurian left Oracle in September because he had not succeeded in expanding that company's cloud activities.
Google Cloud converts around $ 1 billion every quarter.
