Home Cloud Computing Companies go ogle Google Cloud Partner Program

A slew of companies have announced their participation in the new Google Cloud Partner Program.

Google has launched a partner program to encourage the adoption of cloud computing, specifically the company's own cloud apps and those from other providers that take advantage of the Google Cloud Platform.

There are two categories within the program: service partners (which provide consulting and implementation services) and technology partners (which offer products that run on or integrate with Google's platform.

Among the initial partners are Barbador, Informatica and QlikView.

Barbador is a services partner in the new program, and was already a Google enterprise partner.

The company will use its expertise to help clients develop new cloud-based systems using the Google Cloud Platform.

"The Google Cloud Platform offers a broad set of exciting application development, cloud storage, large scale computing, and big data capabilities that provides our clients with an opportunity to change the way they solve business problems in today’s fast, competitive and ever-changing environment," said Surinder Saini, Barbador's director of cloud services.

Turning to technology partners, Informatica is providing a Google Cloud Connector for users who want to link data stored on-premises or in other cloud services to Google Cloud.

"The Google Cloud Platform Partner Program enables us to provide our customers with powerful new solutions for Cloud data integration that leverage the power of the Google Cloud Platform," said Juan Carlos Soto, senior vice president and general manager, Informatica Cloud.

"The Google Cloud Platform offers a broad set of cloud storage, large scale computing, and big data capabilities that provides our joint customers with a quick and easy way to securely bring together on-premise and cloud data to perform big data analytics in the cloud.

"There's simply no faster way to start performing big data analytics in the cloud today."

QlikView is providing a connector between its BI software and Google BigQuery, making it possible to get rapid answers to ad hoc questions about very large data sets.

"The Google Cloud Platform Partner Program enables us to provide our customers and partners with powerful new solutions that are integrated with the power of Google’s Cloud Platform," said Mark Sands, regional director, QlikTech Australia and New Zealand.

More than 20 companies have joined the program in each category.
