Alphabet-owned Google will lay off at least 100 employees from some teams in its cloud unit. According to a media report, Google's internal correspondence reveals that several key roles related to sales, operations-engineering, consulting and market-strategy have been cut.

"We will continue to evolve our business to meet our customers' priorities and the important opportunities ahead," a Google spokesperson said in an emailed statement. We will maintain our commitment to invest in areas that are critical to our business and ensure our long-term success. The report comes after major layoffs across teams in April.

Efforts to reduce costs

The giant company Google is looking at ways to cut costs. Earlier this year, the company undertook a round of layoffs in April that affected an unspecified number of employees across various divisions and cut costs.

Earlier also thousands of employees were retrenched

In January, the company laid off thousands of workers as part of a broader trend of job cuts in the technology and media sectors amid economic uncertainty. The latest layoffs at Google's cloud division highlight ongoing adjustments at the company as it navigates the current economic landscape.

Microsoft has begun layoffs at its Azure cloud services unit

Microsoft has started layoffs in its Azure cloud services unit. With cuts to Azure for operators and mission engineering groups, job cuts have been cut across many teams. The layoffs at Azure for operators are reported to involve up to 1,500 jobs. The company has not publicly disclosed the specific reasons behind the layoffs. The affected employees are part of a unit that is integral to Microsoft's expansion into cloud computing.

Jobs may be offered in India and Mexico

According to sources, it is being claimed that some of the employees laid off by Google may be given jobs in India and Mexico. Around 200 core team members were let go by Google before the first quarter results came out. On April 25, the company announced its first quarter results.
