Enterprise application. At the same time, according to Curry's vision, the profit of cloud storage software services provided by it will be more than 60%, which is greater than the profit margin of Google's advertising business.
This is a strong shot for Google in the cloud service field. From the perspective of global revenue, Google Cloud has lagged behind rivals Amazon and Microsoft, and they missed a crucial acquisition last year. In addition, the departure of Li Feifei, Li Jia and other core figures has made Google cloud worse.

According to the latest financial report released by Google's parent company Alphabet, in 2018, the company's other operating income increased by 4.9 billion US dollars compared with 2017, the main promoter behind it is Google Cloud.
After Curry took office, in addition to expanding the sales team, according to industry sources, he also hopes to increase the profit margin of cloud storage software, allowing it to exceed the profit margin of Google's advertising business. This is a very big challenge for Google Cloud.
If the task of former CEO Dai An Green is to get Google Cloud on the right track and determine the direction of development, then what is in front of Curry is how to lead Google Cloud to achieve new breakthroughs. Amazon and Microsoft have more say in the competition.
