Over the last decade, Google has built infrastructure that serves 4 billion hours of video every month, support 425 million Gmail users and store and manage over 100 petabytes of web index. This session will cover how cloud technologies have evolved into secure and necessary platforms for enterprise IT and how business can use them to their advantage. We'll talk about how to evaluate cloud technologies and will provide an inside look into Google's Cloud and how customers are using it today.
