Google Merges AI, IoT With New Chips And Machine Learning Platform

This article was originally published on CRN. Click here to read the original.

Google is bringing artificial intelligence to the edge of networks with a custom processor and an enhanced cloud platform unveiled Wednesday to bulk up its Internet of Things portfolio.

The merging of AI and IoT will be powered by the new Edge Tensor Processing Unit (TPU)—an ASIC chip designed to run TensorFlow Lite inferences—effectively execute machine learning algorithms from Google’s data processing library without connecting to the cloud, Injong Rhee, Google’s vice president for IoT, told NEXT conference attendees in a keynote.

The tiny chip—four of which can fit on a penny—can pair with sensors to execute machine learning while delivering efficiencies in cost and power consumption, Rhee said.

“Edge TPU will bring a brain to your edge devices,” Rhee said, delivering affordable and power-efficient data processing and machine learning computation without performance compromises.

To further enable development of software that enables data processing for gateways, cameras and other connected devices, Google introduced Cloud IoT Edge.

The integrated platform, released through an early access program, has two components—Edge IoT Core, and Edge ML.

Edge IoT Core delivers a runtime environment for securely connecting devices to the cloud—enabling software and firmware updates and managing data exchanges with Google’s Cloud IoT Core platform.

Edge ML, based on TensorFlow Lite, executes pre-trained machine learning models in the field, where latency is a concern.

Customers can train models in the cloud, and with the services coming later this year, run them locally. Those workloads can take advantage of the new Edge TPU hardware, or general-purpose CPUs or GPUs, Rhee said.

In October, Google will also release a development kit, Edge TPU SOM (system on module), to further empower partners and customers to build custom IoT solutions, he said.

Aric Bandy, president of Agosto, a Google partner focused on IoT, said edge computing presents a lot of opportunity for the channel, but it’s still early days.

When Agosto started bringing IoT to market back in 2011, the Minneapolis-based solution provider had to be an advocate for the technology.

Google is now telling its own IoT story, Bandy said, allowing Agosto to focus on working with customers to take advantage of the expanding portfolio of Google products in the space.

“Google is telling great stories and is out there explaining their platform. And now with IoT Core ready for companies to start building on top of, that story is changing our conversations,” Bandy said.

The new IoT products revealed at NEXT further “set a direction,” Bandy said, especially when it comes to onboarding new customers.

Agosto is working with manufacturers and device developers who are looking to re-platform on Google’s IoT technology, and those customers are first trying to understand the scale of the network and the ability to control onboarding.

“When you have an IoT product that’s scaling, it’s not about what regions do you have data centers in,” he said. “It’s about how fast it is for your device to connect to the Google network and hit those servers.”

Google’s infrastructure investments are why “we are seeing more and more companies looking at Google as having a really unique, disruptive platform really catering to IoT,” Bandy told CRN.

No cloud platform provider has yet established dominance with the Internet of Things, Bandy said. He expects Google to fill that void over the next few years because of the network and edge infrastructure it’s building out.

Google’s G Suite Now Boasts Enterprise-Grade Google Voice, Revamped Cloud Search

This article was originally published on CRN. Click here to read the original.

Google wants users to leverage the cloud to create better user experiences, especially for enterprises using its flagship collaboration portfolio, G Suite.

Google built on its announcements during its opening keynote at Google Next on Tuesday on how it’s boosting security and injecting AI into G Suite, sharing new functionality designed to wow partners and larger customers that may be considering Google for its collaboration needs.

To that end, Google revealed several new G-Suite offerings on Wednesday, including the long-awaited Google Voice for the enterprise.

“There’s still one area of the unified communications story we get questions about, and that’s around telephony,” said Garrick Toubassi, vice president of engineering for G Suite, during his keynote.

Google Voice has been a beloved consumer product for some time, but Google is ready to reveal a new beta version of its Google Voice for the enterprise through its G Suite Early Adopter program.

Google Voice, which will be powered by Google AI, will allow administrators to set policies and assign numbers to users. The product also includes timestamps and voicemail transcription.

“Enterprise Google Voice has been a product gap for Google. If they’re going head-to-head with Microsoft, Microsoft has that solution, so we’ve had to fill that gap with third-party products,” said Aric Bandy, president of Agosto, a Minneapolis-based Google-exclusive partner.

Bringing an enterprise version of Google Voice to market, Bandy said, will be a really important move for Google.

SADA Systems, a Los Angeles-based Google partner, goes through ROI audits with its customers to see what services they could turn off once they move to G Suite. Google has been in the game with email, calendar, and videoconferencing for some time, but the company has lacked an up-to-date voice strategy, according to Tony Safoian, CEO of SADA Systems.

“Voice has been on the journey to the cloud for some time now — it’s the last mile. Google Voice added to the fabric of G Suite really rounds out its telecommunications strategy, and that’s a significant step forward for Google,” Safoian said.

The average user relies on 36 cloud services to get their job done, so simply moving to all G Suite services isn’t an option for every business or enterprise user. With that in mind, Google plans to offer an enterprise version of Google Drive as a standalone product so that users can take advantage of collaborative document editing features while still using their legacy, third-party collaboration services.

“We think Google Drive as a standalone product really opens up the possibility for more businesses to start to experience the transformational benefits of G Suite,” Google’s Toubassi said.

Cloud Search is Google’s tool launched last year that businesses can use to search across their company’s content, including Gmail, Drive, Docs, and Calendar. Google recognizes that information is often spread across many systems and users need the right data at the right time, so the company expanded a new functionality that lets users index third-party information, whether it’s in the cloud or on-premises.

The new G Suite services and features are paying off. Toubassi revealed several enterprise customers that are now using G Suite, including appliance manufacturer Whirlpool and fitness company Soul Cycle.

“In the six years I’ve been working on G-Suite, and in all that time, I haven’t seen this kind of momentum,” he said. “Since last year, we added one million new business [customers] to G Suite, and that momentum is across the globe and across businesses of all sizes.”

Agosto Names Co-Founder Rick Erickson “Chief Cloud Strategist” as Google Cloud Platform Gains Traction With Enterprise Adoption

The company credits its continued rapid growth to its focus on enterprise IT infrastructure and Google Cloud Platform

MINNEAPOLIS—June 13, 2018—Agosto Inc., a cloud services and development company and tier 1 Google Cloud Premier Partner, is continuing to bet on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as the best option for its enterprise customers.

Survey: IoT Developer Support Grows For AWS, Azure While Google Cloud Loses Steam

This article was originally published on CRN. Click here to read the original.

Internet of Things developers are increasingly favoring Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure as their cloud platforms of choice while Google Cloud loses muster, according to a new survey by the Eclipse Foundation.

AWS was by far the most popular cloud platform for IoT developers, growing in popularity by 21 percent from last year to a 51.8 percent share of those surveyed this year. Azure gained favor by 17 percent from last year, with 31.21 percent of developers choosing that platform in the 2018 survey.

Google Cloud, on the other hand, hasn’t been as lucky. The platform’s popularity fell 8 percent from last year, giving it an 18.8 percent market share for IoT developers this year. That put Google Cloud behind private/on-premise cloud solutions for IoT, which slightly increased to a 19.39 percent preference share.

The survey had a total of 502 respondents, many of whom belong to different IoT developer communities, including IEEE and OMA SpecWorks.

Google has been making efforts to turn up the heat on AWS and Azure, most recently by acquiring LogMeIn’s Xively IoT device management platform for $50 million in February. The deal was done to deepen Google’s technology and engineering expertise for Cloud IoT Core, Google’s fully managed service that securely connects, manages and ingests data from globally dispersed devices.

Rick Erickson, co-founder and executive vice president of business development at Agosto, a Minneapolis, Minn.-based Google Cloud IoT partner, told CRN that while it’s still too early to tell who will ultimately win the IoT cloud platform race, Google will have to show good results as it integrates Xively.

“Google has to make some significant headway in this Xively integration and [make it] statistically relevant and very easy for users in the mix,” Erickson said. Once Google integrates Xively’s device management system into Cloud IoT Core, it will fill a gap that previously made firms like Agosto build in support for third-party systems, he added.

What will benefit Google in the long run, Erickson said, is the company’s support of open standards. “Google has consistently been looked at as a developer-friendly cloud. I think you’re going to see that translate to IoT,” he said.

Reed Wiedower, CTO of New Signature, a Washington, D.C.-based solution provider and Microsoft Azure IoT partner, told CRN in an email that “it’s no surprise that AWS and Azure are leading the pack.”

“Both were designed to solve the thorny problems: massive scale, parallel data streaming, security, etcetera, that IoT causes when deployed widely in the field,” he said.

Wiedower said some of Microsoft’s recent work in the past twelve months — including the new Azure Sphere solution for microcontroller devices — has been lowering the barrier to entry for IoT solutions.

“Developers no longer have to dedicate a huge amount of time to get a solution working – they can simply describe a business challenge and immediately jump into customizations,” he said. “The quicker a developer can get a solution in front of a customer, the more rapidly a project can get going.”

Google Provides Another On Ramp To The Cloud With Partner Interconnect

This article was originally published on CRN. Click here to read the original.

Google is offering a new, economical way for customers to get to the cloud quickly. The latest on ramp, Partner Interconnect, relies on dedicated connectivity from the internet giant’s service provider partners to the Google Cloud Platform.

Partner Interconnect is a great option for customers that don’t need the full 10-Gbps bandwidth of a dedicated circuit but still require private, high-bandwidth connectivity to the Google Cloud, John Veizades, product manager for Mountain View, Calif.-based Google, wrote on the Google Cloud Platform blog Tuesday.

To Agosto, a Minneapolis-based Google partner, Partner Interconnect demonstrates that Google is continuing to remove technical barriers in an effort to make cloud adoption easier for customers.

A business’ journey to cloud requires many different kinds of pathways, said Aric Bandy, president of Agosto.

“Google supporting yet another interconnect gives our customers additional options for connectivity to get their data into Google Cloud,” Bandy said. “Flexible data rates and hundreds of additional worldwide POPs [Points of Presence] gives smaller and new customers realistic options for private connectivity.”

Partner Interconnect lets businesses connect to Google Cloud from a convenient location, at a data rate that meets their needs, according to Google’s Veizades. Customers can buy a partial circuit for their connectivity, ranging from 50 Mbps to 10 Gbps. For businesses that aren’t geographically located near a Google Cloud region or Point of Presence, these customers can connect via Google’s carrier partners’ connections.

Google so far has 23 global service provider partners signed up and certified for Partner Interconnect that customers can choose from, among them AT&T, CenturyLink, Equinix, NTT, Orange, Verizon and Zayo.

Partner Interconnect joins Google’s two other cloud interconnection services. One option, Dedicated Interconnect, is an enterprise-grade connection between a business’ on-premises network to the Google Cloud Platform that uses full 10-Gbps circuits. The second option is Cloud VPN, a service that connects premises-based networks to Google Cloud Platform Virtual Private Cloud network via an IPsec VPN connection, according to Google.

Partner Interconnect will be generally available in the coming weeks, according to Google.

Agosto Inc. Achieves Infrastructure Partner Specialization in Google Cloud Partner Program

The designation is reserved for partners that demonstrate success in architecting and building GCP infrastructure and workflows, and migration to GCP.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—April 18, 2018— Agosto Inc., a cloud services and development company and tier 1 Google Cloud Premier Partner, announced it has earned the Infrastructure Partner Specialization in the Google Cloud Partner Program. Companies that attain this designation have proven success in helping customers architect and build their Google Cloud Platform (GCP) infrastructure and workflows, and migrate to GCP.

Agosto helps companies innovate on Google Cloud to grow their businesses, reduce costs, and gain higher performance and agility. The company’s GCP practice has carefully curated technical teams that help clients leverage IoT, Machine Learning/AI, Data Analytics, Infrastructure, and Collaboration.

MOBILITY ADO is the largest bus operator in Latin America. It operates inter-city routes, short routes and tourist charters. Agosto performed business and technical reviews of MOBILITY ADO’s existing architecture, applications and core data workflows which had been in place for about 12 years. MOBILITY ADO now has real-time access to bus diagnostic data via Google Cloud data and analytics services and a clear path to future-proof its platform.

According to Humberto Campos, IT Director at MOBILITY ADO, “These systems were originally very robust, but over time, we faced challenges with innovating on the existing technology stack, as well as with the optimization of operational costs. Agosto created a proof-of-concept which showcased that a Cloud IoT Core-based architecture was a viable path to modernization and functional optimization of many of our existing, core components.”

Agosto recently completed an IT infrastructure redesign for Unilog that enables the company to leverage the public cloud to deliver its e-commerce and product data management solutions. The migration resulted in a 50 percent cost reduction for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) vs. Amazon Web Services (AWS); multi-tenancy improved operating costs and reduced Unilog’s support costs; and the company reports improved uptime of its systems and enhanced security for its customers.

“Previously it took four or five days to build an environment for each new customer, and Agosto was able to identify what changes we should make within our infrastructure to improve that process,” said Swamy Mahesh, CTO, North America at Unilog. “With their help, we’ve reduced that time significantly—to about one day.” Unilog is a global technology and services company that specializes in e-commerce solutions and enriched product catalogs for the business-to-business (B2B) marketplace.
