Products we resell and implement
Google Compute Engine
Google Compute Engine delivers virtual machines running in Google's innovative data centers and worldwide fiber network.
Google Compute Engine delivers virtual machines running in Google's innovative data centers and worldwide fiber network. Compute Engine's tooling and workflow support enable scaling from single instances to global, load-balanced cloud computing.
Compute Engine's VMs boot quickly, come with persistent disk storage, and deliver consistent performance. Our virtual servers are available in many configurations including predefined sizes or the option to create Custom Machine Types optimized for your specific needs. Flexible pricing and automatic sustained use discounts make Compute Engine the leader in price/performance.
Compute Engine VMs boot quickly and are consistently high performance. Compute Engine also offers industry-leading local SSD performance. Compare throughput on equivalent IaaS offerings and see the difference our virtual servers can make for your workloads. For extra performance training and running machine learning models, leverage Cloud TPU or GPU.
Google bills in second-level increments, so you only pay for the compute time you use. With sustained use discounts, we automatically give you discounted prices for long-running workloads with no up-front commitment required.
Create large compute clusters that benefit from strong and consistent cross-machine bandwidth. Connect to machines in other data centers and to other Google services using Google's private global fiber network. Create an instance, check the network configs, run some tests.
Our infrastructure is entirely carbon-neutral. Our global network of data centers consume 50% less energy than the typical datacenter and we purchase enough renewable energy to match 100% of the energy consumed by our global operations. We are growing our global datacenter footprint so your applications can run closer to your customers and distribute geographically for resiliency.
Resize your clusters, create machine images, virtualize your network, use Preemptible VMs for batch workloads and create Custom Machine Types to optimize for your specific needs. Our pricing model won't lock you into obsolete machine types with upfront agreements.
Google App Engine
Build and deploy applications on a fully managed platform. Scale your applications seamlessly from zero to planet scale without having to worry about managing the underlying infrastructure.
Build and deploy applications on a fully managed platform. Scale your applications seamlessly from zero to planet scale without having to worry about managing the underlying infrastructure. With zero server management and zero configuration deployments, developers can focus only on building great applications without the management overhead. App Engine enables developers to stay more productive and agile by supporting popular development languages and a wide range of developer tools.
Quickly build and deploy applications using many of the popular languages like Java, PHP, Node.js, Python, C#, .Net, Ruby and Go or bring your own language runtimes and frameworks if you choose. Get started quickly with zero configuration deployments in App Engine. Manage resources from the command line, debug source code in production and run API backends easily using industry leading tools such as Cloud SDK, Cloud Source Repositories, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio and PowerShell.
Focus just on writing code, without the worry of managing the underlying infrastructure. With capabilities such as automatic scaling-up and scaling-down of your application between zero and planet scale, fully managed patching and management of your servers, you can offload all your infrastructure concerns to Google. Protect your applications from security threats using App Engine firewall capabilities, Identity and Access Management (IAM) rules, and managed SSL/ TLS certificates.
Choose to run your applications in a serverless environment without the worry of over or under provisioning. App Engine automatically scales depending on your application traffic and consumes resources only when your code is running. You will only need to pay for the resources you consume.
Google Kubernetes Engine
Kubernetes Engine is a managed, production-ready environment for deploying containerized applications.
Kubernetes Engine is a managed, production-ready environment for deploying containerized applications. It brings our latest innovations in developer productivity, resource efficiency, automated operations, and open source flexibility to accelerate your time to market.
Launched in 2015, Kubernetes Engine builds on Google's experience of running services like Gmail and YouTube in containers for over 12 years. Kubernetes Engine allows you to get up and running with Kubernetes in no time, by completely eliminating the need to install, manage, and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.
Kubernetes Engine enables rapid application development and iteration by making it easy to deploy, update, and manage your applications and services. Kubernetes Engine isn't just for stateless applications either; you can attach persistent storage, and even run a database in your cluster. Simply describe the compute, memory, and storage resources your application containers require, and Kubernetes Engine provisions and manages the underlying cloud resources automatically. Support for hardware accelerators makes it easy to run Machine Learning, General Purpose GPU, High-Performance Computing, and other workloads that benefit from specialized hardware accelerators.
Control your environment from the built-in Kubernetes Engine dashboard in Google Cloud console. Use routine health checks to detect and replace hung, or crashed, applications inside your deployments.Container replication strategies, monitoring, and automated repairs help ensure that your services are highly available and offer a seamless experience to your users. Google Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) constantly monitor your cluster and its compute, networking, and storage resources so you don't have to, giving you back time to focus on your applications.
Go from a single machine to thousands: Kubernetes Engine autoscaling allows you to handle increased user demand for your services, keeping them available when it matters most. Then, scale back in the quiet periods to save money, or schedule low-priority batch jobs to use up spare cycles. Kubernetes Engine helps you get the most out of your resource pool.
Connect to and isolate clusters no matter where you are with fine-grained network policies using Global Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) in Google Cloud. Use public services behind a single global anycast IP address for seamless load balancing. Protect against DOS and other types of edge attacks on your containers.
Kubernetes Engine runs Certified Kubernetes ensuring portability across clouds and on-premises. There's no vendor lock-in: you're free to take your applications out of Kubernetes Engine and run them anywhere Kubernetes is supported, including on your own on-premises servers. You can tailor integrations such as monitoring, logging, and CI/CD using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and third party solutions in the ecosystem.
As a company that embraces open technologies and has great vision in the space, I’d recommend partnering with Appnovation to drive revenue. We did!
