Ten Cool Google Cloud Products And Tools Launched In 2022

The red-hot cloud computing giant has been on an innovation tear in 2022, launching a slew of new tools and products to help customers better leverage Google Cloud—from a new Kubernetes cost estimator to a high-performance computing (HPC) toolkit.

Google Cloud is looking to leapfrog its cloud competitors over the next few years, in part, by consistently creating new features, services and tools for customers and channel partners to leverage.

During its most recent first quarter, Google Cloud sales soared 44 percent year over year to more than $5.82 billion. The Mountain View, Calif.-based company now has an annualized revenue run rate of roughly $22.2 billion.

In a recent interview with CRN, Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian said he’s bullish about his company’s future thanks to its investments and market momentum in cybersecurity, the Google Cloud Marketplace and channel partner community.

“We are seeing really unprecedented demand from customers, and our partners are critical to meeting this demand,” Kurian told CRN.

“Our backlog of signed, non-cancellable contracts is $50 billion-plus. So that’s a very large number. And all those contracts that have been booked also bring partners in because partners need to drive the commitment that a customer has given us in that contract backlog,” said Kurian. “So there’s a huge, huge opportunity for partners.”

Google Cloud has consistently launched new innovations this year aimed at boosting data analytics capabilities, cloud cost transparency, manufacturing use cases and its Google Distributed Cloud portfolio.
