BigQuery Omni And Looker For Microsoft Azure
Google Cloud introduced BigQuery Omni last July as a multi-cloud analytics solution that lets customers access and securely analyze data across Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS) using standard SQL and without leaving the BigQuery user interface. It runs on Anthos clusters – Anthos is Google Cloud’s hybrid and multi-cloud application platform — that are fully managed by Google Cloud.
BigQuery Omni now also is in preview for Microsoft Azure.
“With BigQuery Omni, you don’t really have to have your data, for example, on GCP,” Saha said. “You can have it in AWS and Azure and still can use the power of BigQuery.
Looker for Microsoft Azure also is now generally available. Looker is an enterprise platform for business intelligence, data applications and embedded analytics acquired by Google in 2019.
