Today, we’re announcing that Google Cloud has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™ for Public Cloud Development and Infrastructure Platforms, Q1 2020. This report evaluated cloud providers’ infrastructure and application development capabilities—important considerations for enterprises turning to the cloud to support their business growth and drive innovation.

In this report, Forrester noted Google Cloud’s investment in global expansion and innovative development services. 

Infrastructure and global reach

Google Cloud’s footprint has expanded to 22 regions with additional regions coming soon in Delhi, Doha, Toronto and Melbourne, providing enterprises with low-latency, high-performance compute, networking, analytics and storage services, as well as in-country disaster recovery options in India, Canada and Australia. This growth has enabled us to introduce new capabilities that allow you to control where you put your data to support regulatory, security and compliance requirements. We’ve also committed to extending the size and reach of our sales and support teams so that customers can get personalized attention around the globe.

In the report, Forrester also gave Google Cloud the highest possible scores in the reliability, storage services, and security certifications criteria. 

Innovative development services

Forrester recognized in the report that “Google is best for customers who prioritize leading-edge AI/ML services and microservices/containers development,“ as well as Google Cloud’s popular CI/CD tools. 

Anthos, in particular, is a modern application platform that enables organizations to build, deploy and operate applications anywhere securely and consistently, while modernizing traditional applications for an increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud world. Anthos can manage workloads running on both on-prem and cloud environments, while reducing costs and improving developer velocity.
