Search giant Google announced this week that its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering, Google Compute Engine (GCE), has gone into general availability. The news comes about 18 months after the service was launched at Google’s I/O conference in June 2012. The announcement of general availability brings several new features to the product, including expanded OS support, new Read more…
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
In push to compete with rival cloud players, Google announces 36 new instance types, reduced compute and storage costs.
Google is officially in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) business. Last week at the Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco, the search giant unveiled Google Compute Engine, a utility computing service that lets users run their workloads inside the company’s vast datacenters. While the public cloud can be used for a range of workloads, Google has suggested several primary use cases, including video rendering, data analysis and high performance computing.
