As we all know, Google tends to be extremely open and forthcoming when it comes to discussing their projects. This has become somewhat of an advantage to them over time, as both individuals and businesses have grown to trust the company’s openness and credibility—in other words, if Google says it’s going to do something, it usually does it. But what happens when that isn’t enough? What happens when you want to keep something secret? Why Google Cloud is so Eager to Keep Certain Things Under Wraps
What ‘certain things’ are we referring to?
Google’s commitment to privacy and security can seem at odds with the company’s business interests. The company may be eager for you, the customer, to know that it does not sell your data or use it for advertising purposes. But Google also needs a way for its advertisers to find customers who are interested in their products, which means the company might want other people to know about your interests too.
Extremely robust security measures
Google Cloud’s security measures are some of the most robust in the industry, with many layers of defense in place to keep your data safe. As a result, Google has been keen to keep certain things under wraps and make sure that you have a seamless experience when it comes to your day-to-day tasks.
Strict data governance controls
Google Cloud has strict data governance controls in place. For example, they encrypt data at rest and in transit, limiting the ability of a malicious third party to access the information. Additionally, they employ strict access controls and use authentication techniques that ensure only authorized people can access data. These are just some of the security features and protections offered by Google Cloud Platform.
Tapping into the power of artificial intelligence
AI is one of the most promising technologies of our generation and its applications are only beginning to be realized. With recent advancements in AI, we can already see how machine learning algorithms will change the way we do things like diagnose diseases, personalize medicine, or make self-driving cars safer. However, there are still some real concerns about what AI could mean for society as a whole.
A good variety of products and services, with more on the way
Google has a lot of products and services, and new ones are always in the pipeline. The company’s newest product, Google Maps Offline, was just announced at this year’s I/O conference. It gives you offline access to Google Maps data on your phone without a data connection.
Really cool stuff that they can’t wait for you to try
Google Cloud Platform has a long list of services and features that we’re really excited about, but we’re not telling you about them just yet. So stay tuned for the official launch on October 29th! In the meantime, here are three more things that might pique your interest:
– A whole new Compute Engine with more capabilities than ever before!
– Nearline Storage: infinite storage with guaranteed response times? Yes please!
– Data Processing in motion: analysis as it happens—for real time intelligence.
The largest edge network in the world. Yes, really.
Google’s edge network is the largest in the world. If you don’t know what an edge network is, it’s basically a way of storing and processing data as close to the user as possible. Think of it as a series of data centers around the world that are more connected by fiber than any other company’s facilities have ever been. This means that when you’re using your Gmail account, for instance, data can be stored much closer to where you live or work.
Openness is a top priority – so let’s talk about it!
At the most recent Google Next Conference, organizational transparency was a hot topic. The cloud division of our company is super keen to keep certain things under wraps, but transparency is a top priority here and we want to talk about it! Let’s dig in on some of the practices we use at the Google Cloud division that allow us to remain as transparent as possible.
How do we know?
We know that Google Cloud is eager to keep certain things under wraps because it has told us. We don’t have any firsthand experience with the company, but it did offer a statement about keeping secrets. Google does not disclose details of our security practices, a spokesman said in an email statement. The company does use machine learning and artificial intelligence for a number of purposes, including cybersecurity.
Let’s get specific!
Google has been trying to keep the specifics of their cloud service under wraps, but they have been going through a lot of trouble and expense in order to avoid revealing what they have up their sleeve. They have gone so far as to engage in legal battles with competitors, who are filing lawsuits against them and asking for access to Google’s software source code. These actions show that they are very keen on keeping certain things under wraps.
So what does this mean for you?
First, it means that the more you know about Google’s services, the better prepared you’ll be for anything. Second, it means that there are a lot of great tools and resources available for those who can’t afford them–Google makes a lot of this information public. And third, knowing what you’re getting into before signing up will save you from getting hit with surprise charges. It’s all about making sure everyone has access to the best technology.
