Overview

Google Cloud Platform(GCP) is a collection of integrated cloud services that companies use to build, deploy, and manage applications through the global network of datacenters. GCP is a set of management tools, it provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics and machine learning. To exchange data between on premise applications with applications hosted in GCP, GCP provides multiple services with reliable enable easy integration with a clearly defined set of APIs. However, switching from one service to another requires new learning and development. Advantco CCloud adapter tries to mitigate these challenges by providing a dedicated adapter for Google Cloud.

The Advantco GCloud adapter currently supports integration with the following GCP services:

  • Cloud Storage
  • Cloud Datastore
  • Cloud BigQuery
  • Cloud Pub/Sub
  • Cloud Spanner

Google Cloud Storage

Cloud Storage allows world-wide storage and retrieval of any amount of data at any time. You can use Cloud Storage for a range of scenarios including serving website content, storing data for archival and disaster recovery, or distributing large data objects to users via direct download. The Advantco GCP adapter supports upload data to GCP buckets and download data from GCP buckets.

Google Cloud Spanner

Cloud Spanner is the only enterprise-grade, globally-distributed, and strongly consistent database service built for the cloud specifically to combine the benefits of relational database structure with non-relational horizontal scale.

Summary

Google Cloud Platform exposes many powerful services that are very practical for integration with Cloud Applications hosted on Google Cloud. These services have their own APIs and require training and development efforts with each integration need. The Advantco Google Cloud Adapter handles these challenges by implementing these APIs in one single adapter.
