A mobile device backed by scalable machine intelligence in the Google cloud is the defining computing paradigm of the technology today. Modern tools require special consideration for the challenges developers face on mobile: serverless capabilities, a cloud-first data model capable of persisting data even when the device is offline, low-latency access to media anywhere in the world, and real-time data synchronization across all mobile platforms. Cloud Platform gives developers comprehensive solutions with a focus on ease of use and speed-all without having to manage infrastructure.
Without requiring any server-side management, Cloud Functions lets you write single-purpose functions that respond to cloud events. Serverless solutions like Firebase and Cloud Functions let mobile developers focus on what’s important: a great client-side user experience, and shipping fast.
Today’s best apps blend client and cloud into a single platform, creating highly responsive experiences for users backed by powerful computing resources remotely. Cloud Platform helps you strike this balance easily for your mobile backend, where non-interactive tasks get offloaded to Cloud Platform, resulting in improved battery life on mobile, lower bandwidth usage, and a snappy client experience on mobile.
We can store binary media or structured data on Google’s secure, global infrastructure. Also we can choose from managed SQL to NoSQL options, including Google’s category-defining archival product Nearline.
With your data on Cloud Platform, unlock insights with Google’s pioneering big data analytics products. Query petabytes of data with BigQuery, all without managing any infrastructure. Process both offline and real-time streaming data from your mobile apps using a unified programming model with Dataflow.
Speed is a feature, and latency makes or breaks the mobile user experience. Google’s private fiber network spans the globe with over 100 points of presence across many countries, meaning your app data reaches users with very low latency. Whether it’s raw application data or media-rich imagery and video, your app data travels Google’s global network from Google’s data centers to the users, anywhere in the world.
