Google Cloud Platform & G Suite
Extending the Enterprise Infrastructure
Enterprises that connect directly to Google Cloud Platform and G Suite through Equinix Cloud Exchange can achieve low latency network compute performance, improve the ability to move large volumes of data in and out of Google for analysis or storage and easily manage the network availability & flexibility that comes with dedicated connectivity.
Key Features of Google Cloud Platform and G Suite
The following benefits can be extended via a private connection to create hybrid solutions.
Compute — A fully managed Platform as a Service (PaaS), Google App Engine uses built-in services that make customers more productive. Google Compute Engine offers flexible virtual machines (Infrastructure-as-a-Service or IaaS) where customers can run large-scale workloads on virtual machines hosted on Google’s infrastructure.
Storage — Google Cloud Storage is a durable and highly available object storage service. Edge-caching delivers fast access to users’ app data from any location. The managed NoSQL schemaless database of Google Cloud Datastore lets users store non-relational data that can automatically scale as necessary and support transactions, as well as robust, SQL-like queries. Google Cloud SQL is a cloud-deployed MySQL database that lets customers run a fully managed service to maintain and administer their databases.
Big Data/Analysis — With scalable, easy-to-use BigQuery, users can run fast, SQL-like queries and analyze big data in the cloud against multi-terabyte datasets in seconds and get real-time insights about their data.
Productivity Apps — A complete package built for the cloud, G suite is a collection of productivity and collaboration software tools including file storage and sharing with Google Drive, real-time collaboration with Google Docs, video meetings with Hangouts and professional email with Gmail. With G-suite, customers enjoy the same experience across different devices, operating systems and browsers. Now, users can view, edit and create content with Gmail, Calendar, and Google Docs offline and sync automatically when they reconnect.
