Google is synonymous with speed and agility. Our way of checking whether the internet is working or not is by googling. Because if google works the internet works!
Google Cloud Platform was launched on April 7th, 2008. A brief history of Google Cloud involves launching an App Engine to make it easy for companies to start work and release new apps. Initially, they released it only to a few customers and developers – companies that had millions of users. Later in May, they opened the platform for all users who could come in and provision their app engine environment through an admin console.
Fast forward 13 years to April 2021, Google Cloud is now the 3rd largest public cloud provider and has been the fastest growing public cloud with a growth rate of 40%+ quarter on quarter.
Google Cloud provides products and solutions for businesses to transform digitally, with a customer-centric approach to solving business challenges.
Google Cloud’s mission is to “organize your information and supercharge it for you”
The information is organized and supercharged by Google Cloud through a technology infrastructure that Google has been scaling for over 20 years. This is the same infrastructure that powers all of Google's services—from Search to Gmail to YouTube— Google Cloud will provide you with that same technology.
The infrastructure is worldwide - spanning over 200 countries. This means that the network infrastructure is isolated from the public internet and has the following:
The custom server hardware and data centers bring an enormous amount of cloud technology computing power to people all over the world.
This technology is transforming how businesses create value, how people work, and ultimately how people live. The growth in this technology is being driven by the shift that companies see in different industries towards digital technology.
For example: In the automotive industry, today a car is a mechanical device. In a few years, that car will be a computer on wheels as a self-driving car.
In the pharmaceutical industry, today, chemists are defining molecular structures to define solutions to medical problems.
In the future, this will not be driven purely by chemistry because data science will enable these scientists to do precision medicine.
Say you have a business challenge. Let us start thinking about the datasets in your ecosystem. These datasets will give an insight on the factors that impact your business.
By combining datasets and cloud technology, you can start building a model to self-learn based on historical production and real time data. This will provide you with predictions that are accurate.
What is the impact of using cloud technology to address your business challenge?
You now can anticipate production and share that with your partners. It means that your partners can better resource their facilities because they will know when there are peaks and troughs in supply.
