Unlock Google Cloud’s performance, scale, and security for your business

Migrate to a more secure cloud

With full visibility into our system, Google Cloud helps minimize threats and secure your data across our data centers, hardware, and network cables.

Grow confidently on our purpose-built infrastructure

Google Cloud runs the same products and services that support over one billion users without compromising performance, agility, or cost.

Modernize at your own pace

Build, manage, and run modern hybrid applications on existing on-premises hardware or in multiple public clouds with Anthos.

As part of our holistic migration and modernization program, Google Cloud RAMP (Rapid Assessment and Migration Program), you can easily gain insight into your current landscape and estimate the total cost of migration with a complimentary assessment from Google Cloud. Sign up here.

Rehost: lift and shift

Migrate workloads to Google Cloud without changes to the platform or apps. Move or extend your on-premises VMware workloads to Google Cloud with VMware Engine. Bring specialized workloads like Oracle with our Bare Metal Solution. Or shift your databases from on-premises to Google Cloud. All help you maintain continuity with existing tools and policies and unify management across environments.

Replatform: lift and optimize

Migrate applications and workloads without rewriting or changing them, simply running them on a new cloud-native platform. Move VM-based workloads from on-premises hypervisors or other clouds directly into Compute Engine with Migrate for Compute Engine and optimize with Recommenders and Cost Management, helping maximize performance, scale, and cost efficiency across your cloud.

Refactor: move and improve

Convert existing applications and workloads to run on modern form factors without modifying code. Take apps running on VMs and automatically transform them into containers in GKE with Migrate for Anthos. Transform existing databases into Cloud Spanner or upgrade your data warehouse to BigQuery. And achieve maximum density and performance for your workloads with cloud-native solutions.

Continue to modernize

As your business grows, so will your cloud. Use Anthos, our modern application platform for your business, to manage and maintain the architecture that works for you, migrate mainframe applications, rewrite existing apps or create new apps using serverless technologies like Cloud Functions and Cloud Run, and augment existing apps with new cloud-native evolutions for maximum effect.
