From humble origins back in 2008 with Google App Engine, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has come a long way, now holding its own in the cloud wars and being recognised as a Top 3 cloud platform provider.

In 2017 Google Cloud Platform selected Tape Ark as one of their global Google Certified Professionals.  This certification and designation recognises Tape Ark’s unrivalled expertise in migrating ageing legacy data (regardless of media type or data format) from physical tape media to storage in a cloud based solution.

Why Google?

Our partnership with Google Cloud Platform is driven by the common goal to provide real solutions to our customers by leveraging the best of both worlds – Tape Ark’s unique and renowned tape data liberation expertise and Google’s secure, global, high performance and cost-effective low cost cloud computing solutions.  Constantly innovating and improving however, where GCP really excels is in big data tools, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and container support - delivering high performance analytics at optimal cost. Google is well known for its expertise in the collection and leveraging of data, so it makes sense that GCP could be a great choice for a range of big data implementations and organisations wanting to experiment with data.
