Google is the perfect match for such hybrid deployments since most of its managed products are also released as open-source projects, e.g. Kubernetes. Google cloud even simplifies further hybrid deployments and their management, based on the April 2019-released hybrid Kubernetes platform called Anthos.
“The partnership is already gaining first momentum using key strength of the Google Cloud. Several projects have been meanwhile successfully delivered on top of Google Cloud.”
In general, Google’s openness allows to control and monitor tightly cloud usage, whilst allowing customers to take leverage of Google’s innovative pace.

Software Development in the cloud (CI/CD pipelines)
Telindus is running multiple software development projects using Google Cloud for itself or for its customer projects. Telindus’ flagship fintech application called DigitalKYC is one example of those. For such purposes Google Cloud allows to efficiently manage the end-2-end software development lifecycles, such as software build, release and versioning with strong integration and container based hosting on top of Kubernetes.
First Big Data projects have been implemented on top of Google Cloud using their data ingest, transformation pipelines and dataware housing solutions, which are capable to gain real-time insights into petabyte-scale datasets using machine learning, artificial intelligence and analytics on them.
