Upgrade your underlying infrastructure

Our top enterprise customers are often surprised to learn that Google’s underlying infrastructure makes it a great place to run existing enterprise workloads. Windows is no exception: learn why SQL Server images powered by Google Compute Engine gives enterprises the continuity needed now as they gear up to build what’s next.

Upgrade your underlying infrastructure

Cloud Economics

The capital and maintenance expense of operating your own data center hinders velocity and agility in the enterprise. Retire hardware, improve server utilization, and avoid lock-in by paying as you go. Sustained-use discounts kick in automatically just by migrating to Cloud Platform.

Cloud Economics

Google-Grade Infrastructure

Cloud Platform leads in price-to-performance ratio across key product areas. Custom Machine Types give administrators full control over specifying machines with CPU and memory configurations that match enterprise needs. Industry-leading VM performance speeds up Windows boot times dramatically. Persistent Disk delivers 20,000 IOPS on 16-core machines, up to 25,000 IOPS on 32-core machines at no additional cost.

Your databases run atop Google’s global fiber network with over 100 points of presence across exchanges and interconnection facilities around the world. The result is ultra low latency for mission-critical enterprise applications wherever your users reside geographically.

Google-Grade Infrastructure

Fine-grained Control

Predefined VM images come preloaded with Microsoft SQL Server. Enterprise admins retain full control over configuration and security, just as they had on-premises. Cloud Identity and Access Management lets you specify authorization rules against resources in a way that matches the way your organization works.

Flexible Licensing

Compute Engine VMs are available preloaded with Microsoft SQL Server, with licensing from Microsoft fully managed on your behalf. SQL Server on Cloud Platform offers enterprise customers a way to pay for premium software the same way they pay for cloud infrastructure: pay as you go, only for what you use.

For customers with Software Assurance from Microsoft, your existing Microsoft SQL Server licenses transfer directly to Cloud Platform. Bring your own licenses and get migration help today using our range of migration options.
