Google establishes partner program for cloud services
According to David Cope, chief marketing officer of Google innovation partner CliQr, the partnership provides CliQr with "the exposure and working relationship with Google's sales and marketing teams." Backed by Google Ventures, CliQr supplies a platform for switching and running virtual workloads across multiple cloud providers. Google admitted CliQr to the partner program afterwards Google managers reviewed CliQr's innovation.
Google is truly seeing interest in its technologies from other third-party integrators, ISVs, resellers, consultants and vendors. One PaaS provider, Orangescape Technologies, migrated a snack company's computing platform from Lotus Notes to one based on Google App Engine. For an office of the United Kingdom's National Weather Service, PA Consulting helped build an online weather forecast application using Google App Engine and Google Maps.
Technology partners use Google cloud services to power their own offerings, or provide tools to help users better deploy Google services. Jaspersoft, Puppet Labs, Opscode and MapR Technologies are among those certified as partners.
