Today we’re announcing Google Cloud, Google’s unique and broad portfolio of products, technologies and services that let our customers operate in a digital world easily and at peak performance.
Google Cloud spans every layer. It includes all of Google Cloud Platform; our user facing collaboration and productivity applications — now named G Suite; all of our machine learning tools and APIs, the enterprise maps APIs; and the Android phones, tablets and Chromebooks that access the cloud. All of this, built for the cloud from the get-go.
Moreover, Google Cloud has been engineered in an enterprise appropriate way, with integrated systems that include guarantees at the service level — all components integrated and meeting the SLA for whatever price point the customer chooses.
Google Cloud products are for customers of all sizes, from the self-employed and startups all the way to the world’s largest enterprises, including Google itself.
Google Cloud isn’t only the products. It's also how we work alongside companies, in an engineering-centric way. Because digital transformation and moving to the cloud are technical processes, we have customer engineers, customer reliability engineers, site reliability engineers, product engineers, all there to partner with our customers as they migrate, deploy and evolve. Our approach and our commitment to Google Cloud customers is simple: we’re in it together.
The cloud partner that customers choose really matters. It amounts to picking which technology curve to bet on, and it’s a long-term bet, there's more to be had than cost savings and increased security. Over the next five years, businesses of every kind will be transformed by smart data, analytics, machine learning and digital communications. What is going to differentiate business in the future is digital technology.
Today we are also introducing a significant lineup of new cloud technologies and machine intelligence capabilities as well as services, and we're showcasing how a cross-section of our customers and partners — including, Airbus, Home Depot, Snap Inc (formerly SnapChat), Evernote, Niantic Labs (Pokemon Go), Telus, Accenture and Pivotal — use and work with Google Cloud.
Finally, in addition to introducing Google Cloud, we’re also announcing G Suite, our new name for Google Apps for Work. G Suite is a set of intelligent apps — Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts and more — designed to bring people together, with real-time collaboration capability built in from the start.
This is just the beginning. We look forward to building this future together.
