Storage – Google Cloud Storage is a durable and highly available object storage service. Edge-caching delivers fast access to users’ app data from any location.

Google Cloud SQL is a cloud-deployed MySQL database that lets customers run a fully managed service to maintain and administer their databases.

Big Data/Analysis – With scalable, easy-to-use BigQuery, users can run fast, SQL-like queries and analyse big data in the cloud against multi-terabyte datasets in seconds and get real-time insights about their data.

Google Apps for Work – A complete package built for the cloud. A suite of productivity and collaboration software tools including file storage and sharing with Google Drive, real-time collaboration with Google Docs, video meetings with Hangouts and professional email with Gmail.
