The Mysore, India-born Razack will be based out of Google’s office in Sunnyvale, California, and will report to Hamidou Dia, Google Cloud’s vice president and global head of solutions engineering.
“My goal is to help Google Cloud customers unlock significant value from our solutions, bringing resiliency and scale to businesses in these uncertain times, and also helping them build a technology foundation for their future,” Razack said in a statement.
