Key Announcements from Google Cloud Next 2019

It’s hard to believe that Google Next 19 has already been and gone. With a conference so big, including hundreds of announcements, sessions and panels, exhibitor booths and after parties - it’s hard to choose which sessions to go to.

Luckily, the CloudM team attended all of the key sessions and put together a list of what they think are the most important announcements from the event, just for you:

Anthos - making hybrid cloud a reality


Google Cloud Services Platform came out of beta with a new name: Anthos – which is now generally available. You can deploy, run, and manage your applications on-premises or in the cloud of your choice, including Google Cloud Platform (GCP), AWS, Azure, or a combination.


Google Cloud Run - Extending serverless to the full stack


Cloud Run is a fully managed, serverless compute platform for containerised apps. It brings a serverless developer experience and workload portability to your Kubernetes Engine apps, either directly or through an open API and runtime environment.

New open source partnerships


As part of their commitment to open source, Google announced new partnerships with seven other companies to integrate their open-source technologies into GCP. This provides a seamless user-experience across management, billing, and support.

BigQuery Business Intelligence Engine


Currently in beta, this in-memory analysis service lets you visualise and interact with large or complex data almost immediately. Thousands of users can use it concurrently – with no data movement required.

Google Voice for G Suite


Now generally available, this cloud telephony service gives you a phone number that works from anywhere, on any device. With Google AI built in, Google Voice can help transcribe voicemails and block spam calls. It also uses text-to-speech technology to automatically create call menus in up to nine languages, so you don’t have to worry about recording messages or translation.

Cloud Security Command Center


This comprehensive security management and data-risk platform for Google Cloud Platform is now available and includes new threat prevention, detection, and response services. You can gather data, and identify and act on threats before they cause damage or loss, all through a single console.
