We have researched on who are the Big Corporate Customers of Google Cloud, the Best Cloud Computing Platform globally and what Google’s Cloud Services they have been availing during their shift from Traditional Client Server Computing over the past 20 years dominated by Microsoft and IBM.
We list the name of the Company and the Google Cloud Service they have availed for what kind of Application serving their (more…)
Google Cloud Platform business unit acquired Apigee, a provider of application programming interface. Apigee provides an API platform that can be used by companies to make their services available on multiple mobile devices. Apigee also provides its customers analytics to measure the activity coming from the apps. As an example, Walgreens uses Apigee to manage the Walgreens APIs that developers use to build apps for the Walgreens ecosystem.
This enhances Google’s push into corporate computing as they look to take advantage of the evolving industry dynamics. Google’s head of cloud computing Diane Greene stated as follows (more…)
The advent of multi-core processors has also provided a big boost to deeper penetration of server virtualization in the data center. For example, a 4-core processor based server can now host four virtual machines on the same physical server – one on each core – thus consolidating four workloads that were running on four different physical servers onto one physical server.
The key implication of this development is that each physical server is clearly processing more data and generating orders of magnitude higher network traffic than in the past. Diskbased storage with sequential read-write is inadequate to extract data out of these servers fast enough creating a data supply problem on the server. NAND Flash-based Storage, which allows random read-write and hence offers an order of magnitude improvement in Storage performance in terms of IOPS (more…)
Every industry / vertical has Big 3 companies like we have seen in the past from Automobiles to Software. When it comes to offering Cloud platform, Amazon leads the pack with AWS, Microsoft’s Azure is a distant second and Google is the clear #3. Time to Market and Investments helped Amazon launch Amazon Web Services in 2006 versus Azure and Google Cloud Platform coming on in 2010 and 2013 and Microsoft having since committed more heavily in the space than Google.
The path each company took is different as each player has borrowed from heritage and experience earned from their principal operations to establish their position in the cloud computing landscape. AWS is leveraging its massive scale and commitment (more…)
