Upnetix + Google Cloud Platform = Huge Success!

26 Jun 2017

We are excited to announce our cooperation with Google as an official Google Cloud Platform’s Partner.

At Upnetix we are always challenging ourselves to rethink the way we do things. By keeping an open mind and finding and implementing new and better ways of doing things, we continuously improve our business, processes and way of working. It is thanks to our innovative spirit that we are now adding even more to our growth.


We are excited to announce our cooperation with Google as an official Google Cloud Platform’s Partner. This is a great achievement because Upnetix is the first Bulgarian company to enter into a partnership with the world’s most popular search engine. We know that Google is committed to the fastest pace of innovation, agility and ease of development, so we are incredibly glad, we are now officially part of the GCP-family!


This means a lot for both internal and external stakeholders and partners in many business areas:


  • Future-proof, secure, global & cost-effective infrastructure;
  • Big Data & machine learning analytics;
  • Serverless endless-capacity computing;
  • Customer-friendly pricing innovations;
  • Software-defined networking;
  • Security at scale.


How does it work?


Cloud Platform consists of a set of physical assets, such as computers and hard disk drives, and virtual resources, such as virtual machines, that are contained in Google's data centers around the globe. Each data center location is in a global region, including Central US, Western Europe, and East Asia. Each region is a collection of zones, which are isolated from each other within the region. Each zone is identified by a name that combines a letter identifier with the name of the region.


What does that mean?


As a GCP customer, we here in Upnetix, will see significant reductions in latency when we run our applications. We will also benefit from our mutual commitment to infrastructure investments. With the addition of a new region, our developers have more choice on how to run applications closest to our customers. Meanwhile, Google’s networking backbone transforms compute and storage infrastructure into a global-scale computer, giving developers around the world access to the same cloud infrastructure that Google engineers use every day. And that basically means that developers can gain access to superior technology, without going bonkers over dollars.


In conclusion:


Innovations like: per-minute-billing, sustained-use discounts that offer optimal pricing (without locking us into potentially obsolescent gear), custom machine types and special pricing for particular use cases – combine to give the best price-performance available from any cloud computing provider.


We're excited to see how the ecosystem of the Upnetix partnership with Google uses the assets we both possess to solve pressing business challenges. It’s a mix between their perfect platform, and our imagination – to build solutions that solve customer problems in new and unique ways.
