Scale for peaks and spikes.
Spikes in traffic are great for business — if your infrastructure and operations can keep up. When every millisecond of uptime counts, global retailers are turning to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for our flexible storage, reliable network, and powerful computing. Scale instantly to meet the demand of both pre-planned sale days and unexpected surges in traffic. During slower sales cycles, GCP can easily scale down, and you only pay for the time you use.
Our solutions are easily adaptable for multi-cloud or hybrid environments and we have services to help you migrate quickly and securely.

Optimize your inventory, marketing, and pricing.
Anticipate demand based on trends and historical data, target more effectively, and set the ideal price point for conversion with our Big Data tools. It’s all about getting your data out of silos with cutting-edge products like BigQuery, our fully-managed serverless data warehouse, and Dataproc, our managed Hadoop service. BigQuery autoscales for performance and can run blazing-fast queries on petabytes of data, getting you insights faster. Dataproc allows you to spin up Hadoop clusters in seconds, process massive datasets, and easily spin down clusters when you’re done.
Our Big Data products have been tested and refined based on years of Google innovation, so they’re integrated and optimized to help you get real-time insight into what’s performing and what’s not.
