Google Cloud

For those of you not familiar with Google Cloud, the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), is a suite of cloud-based computing services designed to support a range of common use cases; from hosting containerized applications, such as a social media app, to massive-scale data analytics platforms, and the application of advanced machine learning and AI.

Google Cloud consists of a set of physical assets, such as computers and hard disk drives, and virtual resources, such as virtual machines (VMs), that are contained in Google’s data centers around the globe.

First launched in April 2008, Google Cloud runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, including Google Search, Gmail, file storage, and YouTube. This global network is a feat of engineering in itself, and Google has a fascinating,  interactive showcase you can explore.

Google Cloud is one of three major cloud providers currently in the marketplace, the other two being Microsofts Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
