Cut costs and eliminate risk with Google Cloud Platform
With leading security, networking, and price-performance, Google Cloud Platform offers school districts a more secure and cost effective alternative to hosting apps and data in-house on district owned servers. From Windows virtual machines to Microsoft SQL Server powering mission-critical applications, Windows has a first-class foundation on Google Cloud Platform. When you are ready to reduce IT costs and eliminate the risks associated with storing student data in-house, we'll be here to help you migrate your apps and data to the Google Cloud Platform. We will send you an appliance that connects to your network and replicates your apps and data on GCP.
Benefits of GCP
First Class Windows Cloud
Shifting your Windows applications and databases to GPC is easy--as Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server instances are available preinstalled on Google Compute Engine VMs--including full licensing and support for your school district. A wide range of supported versions ensures continuity for your existing workloads, with licensing handled on your behalf and options to bring your existing licenses to Google Cloud Platform.
Google-Grade Infrastructure for Windows
Google Cloud Platform enables you to exit non-differentiating, capital intensive activities like hardware procurement and maintenance. Retire hardware, improve server utilization, and avoid lock-in by paying as you go for Microsoft software. Your applications run on Google's own infrastructure, protected by world class security relied on by Google’s own applications and services.
Scale Up, Scale Fast
Compute Engine’s blazing VMs scale seamlessly to workloads of any size, anywhere around the world. Spin up new Windows Server instances that boot quickly. SQL Server can tap Persistent Disk to deliver 20,000 IOPS on 16-core machines and up to 25,000 IOPS on 32-core machines at no additional cost.
Microsoft Windows Server, IIS, and SQL Server run atop Compute Engine VMs, enterprise-grade infrastructure that leads the industry. Custom Machine Types give your admins full flexibility to tailor CPU and memory specs unmatched by any other cloud. Sustained-use discounts combine with pay-as-you-go billing, driving total cost significantly below procuring and managing hardware yourself.
Hybrid Cloud Ready
Your enterprise applications run atop Google’s global fiber network with over 100 points of presence across exchanges and interconnection facilities around the world. This gives your users ultra low latency for mission-critical enterprise applications wherever they reside geographically. Using Cloud Virtual Network and Cloud Interconnect, you can treat GCP as a seamless extension of your existing on-prem network and data center. Hybrid cloud allows you to run workloads flexibly where it makes sense, protecting your existing investment.
Build and deploy Windows and .NET applications on Google Cloud Platform directly from familiar enterprise tools like Visual Studio and PowerShell. Integrate Google’s vast services APIs with native .NET libraries available to your teams in open source. First class .NET on GCP means your development teams can build, test, and deploy Windows applications to the cloud with unparalleled agility.
