Yesterday, DevClass reported that with Elastic’s recent release of Elastic 7.15, the “recently added Google Private Service Connect looks to keep data off the internet by offering private connectivity from Google Cloud virtual private cloud to Elastic Cloud deployments.”
The release also includes updated functionality in Observability and Security, as well as the general availability of Elastic APM correlations and Elastic App Search for Enterprise Search.
CNBC is reporting a change in the engineering leadership of Google’s cloud team. Thomas Kurian, the CEO of Google Cloud, wants to continue growing the company’s market share from its current 10%, up from 7% three years ago.
Google has deployed GKE Dataplane V2, enabling Kubernetes Network Policy logging in GKE, making it possible to “…see all allowed and denied network connections directly in the Cloud Logging console…”
Ever wonder what Google Cloud Platform actually is, and what services it offers, so you can compare to AWS and Azure? Google has an article that should answer most of your questions, and point you to resources for any that remain!
Related to the updated public cloud comparison I discussed a couple of weeks ago, ITPro Today recently published an article about the differentiators driving the rapid growth of Google Cloud Platform.

Datamation recently updated their public cloud comparison article, which does a pretty good job clearing-up some of the mystery.

While necessarily incomplete in such a fast-moving marketplace, the table at the end, laying-out what each vendor offers for common business needs, is particularly helpful.
