Google Cloud allows you to move your PostgreSQL databases to Cloud SQL with Database Migration Service (DMS). DMS gives you the ability to replicate data continuously to the destination database, while the source is live in production, enabling you to migrate with minimum downtime. However, terabyte-scale migrations can be complex. For instance, if your PostgreSQL …

Google is committed to be the best possible place for sustainable digital transformation for European organizations. Our Cloud on Europe’s terms initiative works to meet regional requirements for security, privacy, and digital sovereignty, without compromising on functionality or innovation. In support of this initiative, we are making our annual declaration of adherence to two important …

Apigee is Google Cloud’s API management platform that enables organizations to build, operate, manage and monetize their APIs. Customers from industries around the world trust Apigee to build and scale their API programs. While some organizations operate with mature API-first strategies, others might still be working on a modernization strategy. Even within an organization, different …

Working to put food on all of our tables, today’s farmers are facing a higher amount of instability from input supply chain issues to weather patterns. Adding to this challenge are problems farmers face when trying to correctly time grain purchases, sales and transport. Farmers have always been stewards of the land, but now the …

Artificial intelligence (AI) can automatically learn patterns that humans can’t detect, making it a powerful tool for getting more value out of data. A high-performing model starts with high-quality data, but in many cases, datasets have issues such as incorrect labels or unclear examples that contribute to poor model performance. Data quality is a constant …

Data center networks form the basis for modern warehouse-scale and cloud computing. The underlying guarantee of uniform, arbitrary communication among tens of thousands of servers at 100s of Gb/s of bandwidth with sub-100us latency has transformed computing and storage. The primary benefit of this model is simple yet profound: adding an incremental server or storage …

Online games have grown in popularity lately, and with the influx of players in multiplayer games, meeting the increased demand is a known issue within the gaming industry. We developed Open Match, an open source multiplayer matchmaking framework, to solve this issue by providing core services commonly found in most matchmaking services and hosting them …

In this blog, you will learn about the different guardrails BigQuery provides to limit costs, and monitor BigQuery consumption. Also, learn how to design the warehouse that scales seamlessly while keeping costs under your control. 1. Set up user-level quota and project-level quota can …

When you build a Machine Learning (ML) product, consider at least two MLOps scenarios. First, the model is replaceable, as breakthrough algorithms are introduced in academia or industry. Second, the model itself has to evolve with the data in the changing world. We can handle both scenarios with the services provided by Vertex AI. For …
