“This collaboration comes at a significant moment where Google Cloud recently announced its intent to open a new cloud region in Kuwait, a step that will support our years-long vision to accelerate digital transformation within the public and private sectors.” Al Roudhan added. Abdulrahman Al Thehaiban said: “Zain has been renowned for its innovative approach in the telco space, and we are really proud to launch the first Anthos project in Kuwait.

Zain has long started its digital transformation journey, continuing to see the fruitful results of its early investment in digitization across its entire business.
Zain has partnered with Google Cloud to expand on its transformation journey by embracing Anthos as its hybrid cloud management platform of choice. Anthos is built on the firm foundation of Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Google Cloud’s fully managed Kubernetes service, that helps enterprises innovate faster and provide customer services as well as enterprise solutions in a secure and reliable cost-effective way.
