Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is one of the three leading public cloud vendors offering infrastructure and platform services at scale. Whilst its low-cost infrastructure is a factor, we believe its primary benefits lie in its open cloud approach, and impressive focus on data-driven engineering and machine learning solutions.
Google are actively positioning themselves as an open cloud provider committed to open source principles. We very much share their belief that an open approach enables faster innovation, improved security and freedom from vendor lock-in. Many of Google’s robust SaaS offerings are based on open source technologies, for example Kubernetes (via GKE) and Istio.
We believe that one of GCP’s key differentiators is its first-class data offerings. Its integrated and Serverless Data platforms allow you to seriously accelerate your development, dealing with workloads of varying sizes and complexity. Being able to combine various offerings (many open source) gives flexibility and power to get the most out of data.
While observing any sensitivities and the culture of a business, we’ll always give an honest, unbiased opinion.
Additionally, our open source heritage places us in a good position to advise and help assess the benefits of embracing open source software. We take cost, effort and operational ease into account to ensure an optimal solution.
OpenCredo is proud to be a Google Cloud Platform partner. This means that our consultants are guaranteed to have a high level of expertise in GCP and can, if necessary, escalate issues to technical staff at Google.
While building our experience, we’ve delivered a host of successful projects on Google Cloud Platform. These range from design and build, to analysis of financial research environments. Every project has given us an opportunity to leverage best practice in cloud delivery, helping us to enhance and fine-tune our approach.
Being early adopters of container technology, we have implemented and consulted on many self-managed Kubernetes clusters. We use our expertise to advise on Google Container Engine (GKE) and ensure clients always get the very best result.
Consolidating datasets to drive future Data Analytics capabilities
“OpenCredo helped us integrate that data, seamlessly flow it into our data visualization tool, and deal with a massive amount of data duplication issues. The experience of working with OpenCredo couldn’t have been better – they were highly professional, organized, and supremely competent in delivering this work to us.” – Luke Hartig, Executive Director
Honouring CSR with fast access to ethical supply chain data via Google Compute Engine
“We have the ability to produce large data sets very quickly and there are huge retailers in the U.S. who could very well become clients just because of that,” said José Copovi-King.
“This is a huge step change for retailers and we’re now out in front of the competition in the CSR environment.”
