Kaizen Technology Partners at Google Cloud Next 2019

Google Cloud Next 2019 at Moscone Center in San Francisco on 9-11 April has made significant announcements about Open source, AI platform and retailers support. As a key partner of Google Cloud Platform, Kaizen Technology Partners has participated to update and sharpen up our cloud optimization strategy.

Here are the 9 key takeaways picked by KaizenTP from the announcement:

1. New Open-Source Integrations: Open-source integrations into the Google Cloud Console: Google Cloud’s new CEO, Thomas Kurian, shares his view about gaining customers, startups and supporting open source. Google announces that it has partnered with a number of top open-source data management and analytics companies to integrate their products into its Google Cloud Platform and offer them as managed services operated by its partners, including Confluent, DataStax, Elastic, InfluxData, MongoDB, Neo4j and Redis Labs. The move differentiates Google’s treatment of open-source ecosystems from other cloud providers.

2. Google Cloud Run: Google Cloud Run brings serverless and containers together

3. Anthos: Google’s  Cloud Services Platform for managing hybrid clouds that span on-premise data centers and the Google cloud is coming out of beta today. This will allow enterprises to use a single platform, running on Google’s cloud, to deploy and manage their applications on any cloud.

4. End-to-end AI platform: The highlight of 2nd day’s announcements is the beta launch of the company’s AI Platform. This service combines the company’s Vision Product Search, Recommendations AI and AutoML Tables into a single solution for tackling retail use cases.

5. Google Cloud is launching Cloud Data Fusion in beta. This service lets people aggregate all their data sets in a single interface. Moreover, Google Cloud takes aim at verticals starting with new set of tools for retailers. The company announced a new phase of its partnership with Salesforce, offers eCommerce Hosting, designed specifically for online retailers, and it is offering a special premium program.

6. Google Cloud is bringing two new data centers online in 2020: One in Seoul, South Korea and one in Salt Lake City, Utah.

7. Google launches its coldest storage service yet. What makes Google cold storage different from the likes of AWS S3 Glacier, for example, is that the data is immediately available, without millisecond latency.

8. Google Cloud Code to make cloud-native development easier. Cloud Code ideally makes Writing cloud-native apps so easy that it’ll be far easier for developers — and the companies that employ them — to make this move to a modern infrastructure.

9. Google’s managed database service to support Microsoft SQL Server. It means if your company uses Microsoft SQL Server database, you don’t have to use Microsoft Azure. Your database will work just fine on Google’s Cloud SQL.
