From Anthos on AWS to new technology solutions for retailers to enhanced Google Meet capabilities, Google Cloud has stepped up its product development this year to boost its hybrid and multi-cloud strategy and industry vertical focus and address new customer demands brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Google Cloud’s new Anthos on AWS allows customers to run workloads on rival Amazon Web Services’ cloud. The No. 3-ranked cloud provider also added new functionality for the hybrid and multi-cloud Anthos platform, ranging from artificial intelligence (AI) and Kubernetes cluster management capabilities to bare metal support and deeper support for virtual machines (VMs).

Google Meet updates, which include an expanded tiled layout, a low-light mode, background noise cancellation and security enhancements, are designed to help organizations and educators use the real-time meeting and video conferencing solution with their remote workforces and e-learners during the pandemic.

“There has been an incredible amount of additional functionality that has been released in (Meet),” said Carolee Gearhart, vice president of worldwide channel sales and global SMB sales at Google Cloud. “At Next, we did announce the release of the hub of a much more fully integrated experience. There‘s tremendous traction and interest from partners.”

Google Cloud also is seeing increased activity with Google Cloud VMware Engine and its BigQuery enterprise data warehouse, according to Gearhart.

The new native Google Cloud VMware Engine is an integrated, first-party solution for customers to extend, migrate and run their VMware environments in Google Cloud. BigQuery Omni, released in July as part of Google Cloud’s multi-cloud strategy during its virtual Next ’20: OnAir conference, allows users to run the same database in multiple cloud and data center environments.

“It’s just an extension of the acceleration with BigQuery,” Gearhart said. “BigQuery has (had) an off-the-hook level of engagement…as customers are really grappling with data, and analytics now becoming so important to really understand what’s happening in a given market.”
