It’s hard to even know all of the things Google has its hands on today. The name is ubiquitous with online searches (Just Google it). It’s like calling an adhesive bandage a BandAid™ or a facial tissue a Kleenex™ — everyone instantly knows what you mean.
But you also know that Google is behind the invention of web-based mail service (Gmail, anyone?) or maybe the entire SEM industry via Google AdWords. You know they’re SaaS pioneers for office productivity software, personal data storage, and web analytics. You know they’re testing the boundaries of artificial intelligence (AI) and writing the future of how we live in a digital world, from devices to interfaces to machine languages.
But, maybe you’re not aware of their history as an innovator and leader in enterprise cloud computing …
[Google Cloud Marketplace has entered the chat]
From the beginning, Google Cloud Marketplace has proven its role as a cloud provider through its robust one-stop shop designed to streamline your operations, improve your cloud platform performance, and give you that peace of mind that only a technological giant can provide.
You’ll find a vast array of pre-built solutions that let you quickly deploy tools and services to your cloud technology stack. From virtual machines and databases to applications and APIs, the Google Cloud Marketplace has everything you need in one place. And, because they speak cloud natively, Google offers you a wide range of pricing options based on how you want to deploy and scale your technology.
What does the Google Cloud Marketplace do for me?
Access to Wide-Ranging Solutions
The Google Cloud Marketplace has more pre-configured software solutions than you could ever need. And not just esoteric, long-tail stuff — the biggest names like WordPress, SAP, and MongoDB. You can deploy precisely what you need without extensive setup and configuration because it’s all designed to work with one-click deployment.
Cost-Savings Oriented Pricing
The latest and greatest software deployment doesn’t have to be a cost-intensive decision. With Google Cloud Marketplace’s flexible pricing options, you can pay as you go and scale as you grow. Just as easily, enterprise businesses can choose subscription-based models that build in the licensing and infrastructure savings.
One of the biggest advantages of the Google Cloud Marketplace is its emphasis on the types of software shaping tomorrow. Rather than proprietary solutions found on other major cloud platforms, Google is focused on Open Source solutions that encourage innovation. They choose a Kubernetes-First approach, allowing simple containerized management. And Google’s selection of AI and machine learning (ML) solutions empower businesses to explore these vital technologies across their technology stack.
