Google cloud computing exec Diane Bryant leaves after less than one year

Diane Bryant

In a surprise move, Google Cloud Chief Operating Officer Diane Bryant has left the company after serving only seven months on the job. She was announced as the new Google Cloud COO in what many considered to be a major coup, but it appears as if she's already leaving the position.

Business Insider first reported Bryant's departure.

"We are grateful for the contributions she made while at Google and we wish her the best in her next pursuit", a Google spokesman wrote in an email. Bryant took temporary leave from Intel in May 2017, citing "family matters", but then jumped ship to Google instead of returning to Intel. Google confirmed that the former Intel executive had left the company.

First Confirmed Picture Of The Newly Born Planet
The planet PDS 70b sits about 1.86 billion miles away from its host star, roughly as far as Uranus is from our sun. A newly born planet, which was being formed in our Milky Way, was captured using a planet hunting instrument .

Google's public cloud offering is now the third most popular globally, according to research recently published by Synergy. At Intel, Bryant was the face of the Data Center Group, which booked $17 billion in revenue in 2016 - a huge business that gave Intel a path toward growth, even as the traditional PC market has shrunk.

Moreover, she has a reputation as a talented speaker who can effectively evangelize new technologies, potentially complementing the soft-spoken Diane Greene, whom Google brought on to jumpstart its cloud operations in late 2015. However, it appears that after spending less than 12 months working to show that Google Cloud is good enough for the enterprise world, something changed.
