C-level briefing: Craig McLuckie, Senior Product Manager, Google talks to CBR about being the open cloud, a second wave of adoption and innovating to differentiate.
1. We are the open cloud.
"We are legitimately invested in being an open cloud. We are building our next generation of products in the open as open source projects, we were the first of the big three cloud providers to get serious about OpenStack – we are the open cloud and we’re invested in that."
2. We are the innovative cloud.
"We are the innovative cloud. If you think about what Google’s done historically from a technology perspective, we have been the pioneers in a lot of things that have become mainstream over-time but really started at Google."
3. Enterprises becoming like internet companies.
"They are becoming internet companies in a way. What we’ve learned is that this is the only way to run, through co-evolution, and this is demonstrably the only way to run internet scale. I think it’s extremely relevant to enterprise."
4. Lots more value to come from cloud.
"I think there’s a long way to go. I think they are getting legitimate value out of cloud right now and its solving an infrastructure and elasticity problem. It’s also creating an ecosystem, so it’s creating an environment where it’s easy to find and consume software and a place where it’s easy to get stuff."
