Google Cloud announces new multi-cloud analytics and security solutions

(Edited Press Release)


Google has announced new solutions across its smart data analytics and security portfolios to help accelerate customers’ ability to digitally transform with cloud computing. During the kick-off of the giant search engine’s Next OnAir on July 10, 2020, Google Cloud unveiled its new BigQuery Omni solution.

BigQuery Omni is a multi-cloud analytics solution that enables customers to bring the power of BigQuery to data stored in Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and soon in Microsoft’s Azure.

BigQuery was launched in 2010 and has become the most popular cloud data warehouse platform in the open-source or public cloud. Not surprisingly, it has emerged as among the fastest-growing services in the Google Cloud product portfolio.

BigQuery Omni will allow customers to directly connect to their data across Google Cloud, AWS, and Azure for analysis without having to move or copy datasets. Powered by Google Cloud’s Anthos, BigQuery Omni will allow customers to analyze data in the region where it is stored, providing a unified analytics experience.

“For customers, moving data across different clouds is both cumbersome and expensive,” said Debanjan Saha, General Manager and Vice President of Engineering. “BigQuery Omni provides enterprises with the openness and portability they need to break down silos and create actionable business insights, all without having to pay expensive egress fees for moving data from other cloud providers to Google Cloud.”

Google Cloud is the first major cloud provider to offer this level of security and isolation while giving customers an easy-to-use solution that doesn’t require changing code in apps or compromising on performance.
