Time-series analysis is essential for day-to-day operation of many companies. Most popular use cases include analyzing foot traffic and conversion for retailers, detecting data anomalies, identifying correlations in real time over sensor data, or generating high-quality recommendations. With Cloud Inference API Alpha, you can gather insights in real time from your typed time-series datasets.

At its core, Cloud Inference API is fully integrated with other Google Cloud Storage services, providing you with a consistent method of access across all storage products.


Anomaly and trend detection

Detect trends and anomalies with event time markers.

Large scale

Handle datasets consisting of up to tens of billions of events. Run thousands of queries per second.

Low latency for queries

Rely on low latency and use the API as a recommendation back end for interactive, user-facing applications.

Serverless and fully managed

Cloud Inference API is fully managed so you can focus on insights, not infrastructure.
