Google Cloud Services
There are is vast array of services available with in the Google Cloud, that provide professional and industry leading solutions that are all designed to be available 24x7x365 with 99.978% availability. We have focused on the following key area's of the Google Cloud Service.
Google Compute Engine (Virtual machines)
Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)
Google Content Delivery Network (CDN)
Working with this sub-set of the complete portfolio keeps us focused on what we do best but we are equally happy to explore new technologies that complement or are fitting for your solution.
A complete range of virtual machine compute workloads:
General Purpose - Machines provide a good balance of price and performance
Compute Optimised -Machines offer high-end vCPU performance for compute-intensive workloads
Memory Optimised - Machines offer the highest memory and are great for in-memory databases
Accelerator Optimised - Machines are based on the A100 GPU, for very demanding applications
Confidential Computing (BETA) - allows you to encrypt data in use - while it’s being processed
We will work with you and your business to ensure that you get the correct balance of the compute.
A secure and managed Kubernetes service that has a four-way auto scaling feature and multi-cluster support enabling us to create multi-zonal and regional clusters while using the high-availability control plane. We can assist with eliminating operational overheads with auto-repair, auto-upgrade, and release channels.
Content Delivery Network
We leverage the Google CDN global edge network to serve content closer to your users, which accelerates your websites and applications.
Cloud CDN works with external HTTP(S) Load Balancing to deliver content to your users. The external HTTP(S) load balancer provides the frontend IP addresses and ports that receive requests and the backends that respond to the requests. When a user requests content from an external HTTP(S) load balancer, the request arrives at a Google Front End (GFE), which is at the edge of Google's network as close as possible to the user. The load balancer's URL map would then route the traffic to the relevant backend service to process the request.
Cloud Build is a service that executes your builds on Google Cloud Platform infrastructure. Cloud Build can import source code from Google Cloud Storage, Cloud Source Repositories, GitHub, or Bitbucket, execute a build to your specifications, and produce artefacts such as Docker containers or Java archives.
Cloud Build executes your build as a series of build steps, where each build step is run in a Docker container. A build step can do anything that can be done from a container irrespective of the environment.
