Run on Google’s infrastructure
Build on the same infrastructure that allows Google to return billions of search results in milliseconds, serve 6 billion hours of YouTube video per month and provide storage for 425 million Gmail users.
Google has one of the largest and most advanced computer networks. Google’s backbone network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cable, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. In fact, we even laid our own fiber optic cable under the Pacific Ocean.
Multiple points of presence across the globe provides strong redundancy. Your data is automatically mirrored across storage devices in multiple locations.
Cutting-edge computer science
Infrastructure innovation isn’t just about hardware. Google has led the industry with innovations in software infrastructure such as MapReduce, BigTable and Dremel. Today, Google is pushing the next generation of innovation with products such as Spanner and Flume. When you build on Cloud Platform, you get access to Google’s technology innovations faster.
Focus on your product
Rapidly develop, deploy and iterate your applications without worrying about system administration. Google manages your application, database and storage servers so you don’t have to.
Let Google worry about database administration, server configuration, sharding and load balancing while you focus on your code. No need to carry a pager or write boilerplate code.
Developer tools and SDKs
Google integrates with familiar development tools like Eclipse and provides API client libraries and a command-line interface, which makes it easy to build the way you want.
Console and administration
See and manage all of your applications from a single console. View the performance of your applications and manage your account and billing with a simple interface.
Scale to millions of users (and back)
Applications hosted on Cloud Platform can automatically scale up to handle the most demanding workloads and scale down when traffic subsides. You pay only for what you use.
Cloud Platform is designed to scale like Google’s own products, even when you experience a huge traffic spike. Managed services such as App Engine or Cloud Datastore give you auto-scaling that enables your application to grow with your users.
Just as Cloud Platform allows you to scale-up, managed services also scale down. You don’t pay for computing resources that you don’t need.
Mix and match services
Virtual machines. Managed platform. Blob storage. Block storage. NoSQL datastore. MySQL database. Big Data analytics. Google Cloud Platform has all the services your application architecture needs.
Cloud Platform offers both a fully managed platform and flexible virtual machines, allowing you to choose a system that meets your needs. Use App Engine, our Platform-as-a-Service, when you just want to focus on your code and not worry about patching or maintenance. Get access to raw virtual machines with Compute Engine and have the flexibility to build anything you need.
Google Cloud Platform provides a range of storage services that allow you to maintain easy and quick access to your data. With Cloud SQL and Datastore you get MySQL or schemaless NoSQL databases, while Cloud Storage provides flexible object storage with global edge caching.
Use Google APIs and services to quickly enable a wide range of functionality for your application. You don’t need to build these from scratch, just take advantage of easy integration within Cloud Platform.
Performance you can count on
Every millisecond of latency matters. Google’s compute infrastructure gives you consistent CPU, memory and disk performance. Our network and edge cache serve responses rapidly to your users across the world.
CPU, memory, disk
Google Cloud Platform provides fast and consistent performance across the range of computing, storage and application services. With powerful processing, access to the memory you need and high IOPS, your application will deliver consistent performance to your users. You enjoy the benefits of reduced latency and avoid noisy-neighbor problems.
Google uses software-defined networking technology to route packets across the globe and enable fast edge-caching so that your data is where it needs to be to serve your users. When every millisecond of latency counts, Google makes sure that your content is delivered quickly.
Virtual machines never go down for scheduled maintenance with new, built-in live-migration technology. Get the peace of mind of knowing hosts are patched and data centers are maintained without the headaches of downtime.
