By 2030 data centers will consume 13% of the world's electricity. By the end of 2017, all of Google will be 100% powered by renewable energy – and so will your business on GCP.
Cloud IoT Core allows you to easily connect and centrally manage millions of globally dispersed devices. New features let you bring your own certificates and connect existing devices over HTTP.
New features extend the ability of Cloud Natural Language API to automatically classify content into 700 categories. Quickly gauge sentiment about entities and objects – and understand how users feel about your products.
High-performance options now include NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 and K80 GPUs – and the ability to add up to 96 vCPUs and 624 GB of memory. Custom machine types are tailored to your workloads' requirements.
