Last month brought new and continued challenges around the world, and new ways technology can help meet them. Top posts in May on the Google Cloud blog covered news on productivity, G Suite, and much more. Here’s what you missed.  

Understanding cloud infrastructure to serve more people faster

  • This post goes in-depth on how our Technical Solutions Engineers (TSE) team solved the case of a Google Cloud customer support ticket. Along the way to find the missing DNS packets, you’ll get a look at how support teams evaluate and troubleshoot on the way to finding a solution for customer issues, and what you can do to help fix issues if they occur.

  • In May, we introduced Google Cloud VMware Engine, designed to make it easy to migrate or extend your on-prem workloads to Google Cloud. VMware Engine lets you run your workloads natively in a dedicated VMware environment in Google Cloud, so you don't have to change any of your tools, processes, or policies.

  • Mark your calendars for Google Cloud Next ‘20: OnAir from July 14 to September 8, where you’ll be able to access developer programs, keynotes, and hundreds of sessions—all free of charge. Each week you’ll find programming on a different topic, including infrastructure, security, app modernization, and cloud AI. Register and get more details on speakers and topics now.

Making it easy to get started with G Suite

  • G Suite Essentials launched last month, giving groups and teams a faster, easier way to get started with G Suite. G Suite Essentials includes premium video conferencing with Google Meet, real-time collaboration and content management with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive, and enterprise-grade security and reliability. It’s great for teams that aren’t ready to replace their current email or calendar tools, and it’s completely free through September 30. 

Doing more with what you have

  • For many businesses, using their resources wisely has become especially important over the past few months. This post on understanding the principles of cloud cost optimization offers an overview of cost optimization concepts, tools, and tips on prioritizing your cost optimization projects. 

That’s a wrap for May. Stay tuned to what’s new in cloud on Twitter.
