The 10 Hottest Google Cloud Tools To Watch In 2021
From Google Cloud’s Anthos on bare metal to the new serverless Database Migration Service, CRN breaks down some of the No. 3 cloud computing provider’s top products and services to follow this year.
Last July, Google Cloud announced the preview of BigQuery Omni, a new version of BigQuery, its fully managed, petabyte-scale analytics data warehouse.
BigQuery Omni, powered by the Anthos platform, is a multi-cloud analytics solution that allows users to access and securely analyze data across Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure (coming very soon) without having to reformat, move or copy data across clouds. It includes the same BigQuery user interface and uses standard SQL and the same BigQuery APIs as the original.
BigQuery Omni’s ability to analyze data in multiple public clouds is made possible by BigQuery’s decoupling of compute and storage, according to Google Cloud. Its query engine runs the necessary compute on clusters in the same region where a user’s data is stored.
The tool’s benefits include breaking down data siloes and a unified analytics experience across datasets without worrying about the underlying infrastructure or egress fees.
