Cloud Covered: what's new in Google Cloud in April
May 03, 2019 according to information from Google Cloud Platform; spring is blossoming after inviting thousands of people to our big annual event: Google Cloud Next ’19. We've heard great stories about how customers are growing their business with the cloud, and we've sowed the seeds for many new ideas and connections.

Read on to find out about next and what else is new with Google Cloud last month.
We introduced our new cloud service.
Our big news in April , when Sundar performs on stage Next ’19, is Anthos'd, our Open Cloud Platform. Anthos is a way for app developers to reduce the extra time they currently spend on writing apps.

For example, a developer could write code for an app that is currently running in the data center and then have to rewrite it to work in another cloud or Google Cloud. Anthos allows developers to package their code once, then run it on different types of clouds, saving tons of time.
There's a new way to store data in the cloud.
If you had to track down an old email with important information, you would understand how necessary that email was, even if you received it years ago. The idea behind archival storage is that this is a way for companies to store data for longer periods of time, cheaper than the data they might need to access regularly. In next 19, we announced a new type of cloud storage that will allow companies to store this data in a way that allows them to access it immediately when and when they need it .

It can be particularly useful for companies that need to store data, such as a digital storage unit and for legal or compliance reasons.
There are new ways to crush the numbers.
One of the popular ways to use Google Cloud is to analyze data. BigQuery is one of our well-known cloud-based tools for data storage (data warehouse) that can quickly store and analyze large amounts of data. Companies can learn from data and get new information from traditional, non-cloud data warehouses that may be slow or difficult to retrieve, helping them make decisions and work more efficiently. These tools are popular and growing – the volume of data analyzed at BigQuery has risen by more than 300 per cent in the past year. We recently added new features that make it easier to get a company's data into the cloud and then clean it up (for example, by taking duplicate information) and organize it.

We wished Gmail a happy birthday.
Now Gmail is 15 years old, allowing you to schedule time when sending emails and reply to a Google Docs comment directly in an email sequence (no back-and-forth). Also, in Gmail, Create Smart, now Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese languages are also available.

122 other things happened at next.
Many new products, features and customer stories came out of Next ’19, and we've drawn up a list of 122 announcements from the show . The list starts with new regions going online – these are new data centers that can help users get faster cloud access, leading to all sorts of technical News.
