BigQuery Omni Now Generally Available
Google announced the general availability of BigQuery Omni, which aims to help users build cross-cloud analytics, combining data in Google, AWS and other cloud products in a single analytics experience. Current users include video game company Electronic Arts and Johnson & Johnson.
“With BigQuery Omni, we are breaking through the data silos that are emerging in a multi-cloud environment to give our customers the benefit of a unified analytics across clouds,” Kazmaier said.
Google introduced BigQuery Omni, which runs on Anthos clusters, in 2020. In May, the company launched a preview for Big Query Omni on Microsoft Azure.
Gupta said that Google has “a growing set” of Anthos-certified partners to help the product expand.
“We’re also making Anthos easier to use, we continue to focus on that,” Gupta said. “We’re staying aligned with upstream Kubernetes, which means that the general purpose skills that people have in Kubernete, also apply to Anthos environments.”
