Replicating Google’s cloud model in the enterprise
Google is firmly among the cloud elite, and many enterprises want to follow in its footsteps. Becoming a Google copycat may not be as hard as you think.
Google broke the mold on how to build and run data centers, as well as how to orchestrate the virtual machines that run the public cloud. And as the search giant combines megascale in the cloud with huge buying power, it allows new ground to be continually broken. While running your cloud environment like Google may seem out of reach, there is a trickle-down effect that brings benefits to enterprises. To understand the opportunities, it’s necessary to look at how Google operates and how enterprises can emulate that.
