Google sets up cloud services Partner Program
Google says it will make available to partners tech resources such as Compute Engine.

Google has announced a Cloud Platform Partner Program, offering partners tools, training and resources to provide cloud services through Google's infrastructure.

Google will make available to partners technology resources such as Compute Engine to configure and manage applications running on Google's infrastructure; Google BigQuery to import and analyse data; and Google Cloud Storage for archiving, backup and recovery, and primary storage solutions.

The platform also includes service partners offering consulting and implementation of Google Cloud products such as Google App Engine, Mobile Apps, and Social Apps.

"In the last decade, we've invested in building an infrastructure that can serve 4 billion hours of video every month, support 425 million Gmail users and store 100 petabytes of web index, and it's growing every day," Eric Morse, head of sales and business development, Google Cloud Platform, wrote in a blog. "We've taken this technology and extended it via Google Cloud Platform so that you can benefit from the same infrastructure that powers Google's applications."

The Cloud Platform Partner Program is Google's attempt to expand its cloud services while creating a larger partner ecosystem.

The company already has a programme for partners who sell Google products such as Google Apps, Google Docs and Chromebooks.

Last month, Google unveiled its cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service, called Compute Engine, that leverages the company's worldwide data centres and infrastructure to help businesses migrate their IT resources to the cloud.
