Alooma’s Expertise in Migrating Databases Furthers Google’s Position as a Strong Contender in the Race to Becoming the Top Cloud Vendor for Enterprises
As the war of Clouds heats up, Google is fast moving to come to a vantage point and have an upper hand on brands as big as Microsoft, IBM and Salesforce. With most enterprises employing top strategies to market their Cloud products, Google is now trying to resolve an industry-critical problem. Cloud adoption is getting larger as businesses begin to understand the value addition of Cloud Computing to improve all aspects of their business. However, the bigger problem is data migration.
Enterprises have been skeptical about shifting an extremely large mission-critical dataset from Point A to Point B. Agreeably, one of the many advantages of hosting data on a Cloud is the downsizing of Information Technology Infrastructure costs. However, if data migration fails, the advantage that Cloud Computing offers becomes null and void. Google understood this and quickly acting on this problem, acquired Alooma.
Alooma is an Israel-based business that has superior capabilities in the seamless migration of enterprise’s database to the Cloud. They do this irrespective of where the data is stored and have been known to have a proven track record. Hence, Google can now lift a large chunk of data, migrate it, and store it into a single data warehouse.
Google will also facilitate businesses with additional capabilities such as Cloud Spanner, Cloud Bigtable, Analytics, Security, AI and Machine Learning. Google’s Cloud capabilities become stronger because Alooma can migrate both, enterprise and open-source databases, which is a rare capability. This will substantially help Google in its Sales pitch. This is also a step to penetrate into Israel’s technology market. Google had previously acquired Velostrata, a leader in Enterprise Cloud Migration Technology.
