Google seems to be confident it is going to win one of the biggest bids in Israel: Project Nimbus, the state’s official cloud service project. A new job listing by Google issued recently suggests as much, with the company looking for Israelis with security clearance.

The recent disqualifications of rivals Oracle and Microsoft mean that Google and Amazon are the last big players still in the running to win the Israeli government tender for Project Nimbus, a multiyear project to migrate Israel's public information technology to the cloud.
