Google Ups the Ante in Cloud Battle With Amazon and Microsoft

Google showcased a series of old and new products and APIs at the GCP Next 2016 conference in San Francisco in this week. While the new machine learning suite grabbed most of the headlines, the search giant, which is playing catch up with the likes of Amazon and Microsoft when it comes to the public cloud, made a host of other announcements as well. Here's a quick look at some of them.
More GCP regions
One of the ways cloud companies differentiate is by having data centres in different locations across the world. Not only does this address latency issues, which is an important criteria for high-performance applications, but many applications, especially ones that deal with government and financial data, require data be stored within the country. This means having local data centres is not just about bragging rights, but a business requirement should you wish to remain competitive as you expand across the globe.
Jason Zander, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Azure told Gadgets 360 earlier this month that Microsoft has 28 data centres across the world, "more regions than Amazon and Google combined", and Google has moved to address some of this imbalance. This week, Google announced the launch US Western region in Oregon and East Asia region in Tokyo, Japan, both operational later this year. At GCP 2016, the Mountain View based giant added that there are the first of more than 10 additional Google Cloud Platform (GCP) regions will be added to its network through 2017, with a bunch of these expected to come up in Asia. The company will reveal the specifics at a later date.

Google Stackdriver
Google spent a lot of time at GCP 2016 talking about the openness of its offerings, insisting there's no lock-in of any kind. In fact its new offering called Stackdriver even works with Amazon Web Services (AWS), offering dashboards, uptime monitoring, alerting, log analysis, tracing, error reporting, and production debugging, across GCP and AWS, in a single, unified offering. Customers can use Stackdriver if they are using GCP, AWS, or a combination of both, and, amongst other things, be alerted of issues with their network via Slack, HipChat, Campfire, or PagerDuty.
New partnerships
Google said that BMC, Pivotal, Red Hat, SAP, Splunk, Tenable Network Security, Veritas and "many other enterprise ISVs are working hard to integrate their software with GCP". Accenture, CI&T, Cloud Technology Partners, PA Consulting, and PwC are amongst companies helping enterprises move to Google Cloud.
Google Data Studio 360
Google has announced the launch of Data Studio 360, a new reporting and data visualisation tool that lets you build reports based on different data sources like Google Analytics, BigQuery, and Google Sheets. You can combine data from all these sources in a single report, and make visualisations that may not have been possible before. Google Data Studio is available right now in private, invite-only beta for Google Analytics Premium customers.
Other new features
In addition, Google Cloud Platform gets a host of new features including Audit Logging (coming before the end of May), Identity and Access Management roles (available now in beta), support for customer supplied encryption keys, and more.
Google data centre 360° tour
If all this cloud stuff is leaving you dizzy, here's something lighter everyone can enjoy. Google has posted a 360-degrees tour of its data centre in The Dalles, Oregon. While you can see it on your desktop, and mobile, it's something that's best experienced with the Google Cardboard.
Disclosure: Google sponsored the correspondent's flights and hotel for the event in San Francisco.

Environment conscious people in the Telugu-speaking states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh switched off lights for one hour on Saturday night to mark Earth Hour 2016.

The India-Pakistan cricket match, however, put the people in dilemma in cities like Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada.

Cricket fans largely ignored the call by environmentalists to switch off lights between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm and join the global community in the campaign aimed at bringing down the Earth's temperature.

Ardent cricket lovers were glued to their television sets to catch the live action from Kolkata and did not really bother about the call to show commitment to the planet.

However, the environment conscious ensured that they don't miss the game while demonstrating their commitment by switching off the lights.

The WWF also encouraged residents' welfare associations to join hands in observing Earth Hour without missing the cricketing action.

In Hyderabad, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan also backed the Earth Hour initiative. All lights at Raj Bhavan, the official residence of the governor, were switched off.

Lights in all the buildings located on 22 acres were switched off.

Malaika Arora Khan opts for silence over divorce rumours

The actress walked for designer Mandira Wirk at the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) winter-festive 2016.
New Delhi, March 19: It was a “Mein chup rahungi” moment for actress Malaika Arora Khan as she decided to stay mum over rumours of divorce from producer husband Arbaaz Khan.

The actress walked for designer Mandira Wirk at the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) winter-festive 2016 and when IANS asked her about the media reports about her personal life, she refused to comment.

Wirk presented a collection titled “Romancing Rococo” on the fourth day of the fashion gala that is taking place at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here. The collection delves deep into this style that gained prominence in Paris as a statement in fancifulness, modishness and refined style. The collection particularly takes a cue from the curlicues motifs and gilding of the iconic era and finds a modern-day expression in Wirk’s collection.

“The Rococo movement emerged as a rebellion against the rigidity of Baroque designs and its hallmark was a quiet grandeur that was far from opulent or overbearing. My collection captures this exact sentiment and strives to bring forth elegance that is, at no point, over the top or gimmicky,” said the designer.

Asked what made her look at Malaika as her muse this time, Wirk told IANS: “The designs depicts 18th century art and architecture and talks about curves and asymmetric designs so who can you have better than the curvaceous body of my friend Malaika.”

Even Malaika was excited walking the runway and said that she would love to associate with Wirk for her fashion label titled “The Closet Label”. ”My line is easy, affordable and comfortable so i would love to have designer friends,” Malaika told IANS.
