Google Cloud Platform


Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Drive, and YouTube. Alongside a set of management tools, it provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics and machine learning.

Google Cloud Platform provides infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, and serverless computing environments. Previewed in 2011 and fully launched in 2014, Cloud SQL is GCP’s fully managed relational database service for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server.
