Over the last decade, Google has built infrastructure that can serve 4 billion hours of video every month, support 425 million Gmail users and store and manage over 100 petabytes of web index. Now, businesses can take advantage of the same scale and efficiency enjoyed by Google applications via the Google cloud platform. This session will cover Google’s vision of the platform and provide an inside look into Google Compute Engine. Google Compute Engine is infrastructure-as-a-service that lets you run large scale computing workloads using Linux Virtual Machines on Google’s infrastructure.
