Alphabet Trots Out New Cloud Clients For Amazon, Microsoft To See

At its Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco today, the technology giant announced a new Windows partner program created to assist companies with Windows environments migrate to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Google is also offering a new product called Cloud Dataprep - a serverless data preparation tool that helps to quickly ready data for immediate analysis or machine learning.

Describing video as the "dark matter of digital", Li launched the Google video API for Google Cloud, which accurately identifies things and places in videos. Videos have always been a challenge for machine learning researchers. Developers and the enterprises, which Google will need to attract more business away from Amazon and Microsoft, are taking notice - as was evidenced here by big crowds and a standing-room only audience at the company's Google Cloud Next conference.

Google had been offering the Machine Learning Engine on the cloud platform in beta, but now it is generally available, according to Li.

The news, revealed at the time of Google's Cloud Next event in San Francisco, represents an alignment between the two companies" "obsession' with customer service and support, Rackspace said.

The company has refrained from disclosing the terms of the deal however they could have been fairly impressive from Kaggle's perspective considering that it is one of the few platforms of its sort out there.

Rackspace will provide the customer support for clients that select Google as their cloud services provider.

Rackspace has announced a partnership with Google Cloud to become its first managed services support partner.

In all likelihood, Google values Kaggle for its deep user base, rather than any proprietary technology, which is a bit of a departure from its usual penchant for cutting edge intellectual property.

Google also announced the opening of its Advanced Solutions Lab in Mountain View, in which customers can work with machine learning experts at Google to develop solutions that can address their specific needs. While Google's own demo of the API was indeed impressive, it's still up to developers whether they can push the technology further, but with the API democratized, it's easy to imagine that it'll go well.

Kaggle prides itself on possessing AI innovation apps and tools.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but nothing screams "enterprise" like SAP software, so it was an important endorsement for Google's cloud efforts.

"Now, with an eye to the future, we are looking at the Google Cloud Platform".

"Google Cloud partners are essential to our commitment to help enterprises innovate faster, scale smarter and stay secure", the blog states.
