GOOGLE CLOUD WILL BOOST CLOUD STORAGE SERVICES WITH ELASTIFILE DEAL
Google Cloud Platform is building out its cloud storage capabilities with the planned acquisition of file storage vendor Elastifile, a move that furthers the cloud provider’s efforts to entice enterprises to use its services. Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian, a former longtime Oracle executive who has made building out the company’s enterprise business a key part of his strategy, announced the deal this week, saying that Elastifile’s products are key to running file storage for enterprise-class applications at scale in the cloud. File storage is fundamental to enterprise infrastructure and a priority for customers looking to accelerate their digital transformation,” Kurian wrote in a blog. “For example, companies who run SAP need access to highly available and consistent file storage. Developers building applications that use Kubernetes need file storage for their stateful workloads. As these critical applications migrate to the cloud, IT teams need simple, natively compatible storage options along with the features and performance to support them. JEFFREY BURT READ MORE
