Cloudflare and Google partner to support developer innovation
|Richard Harris in Cloud Services Thursday, September 21, 2017|
Cloudflare and Google Cloud team up to promote developer innovation for the Cloudflare App Platform.
The collaboration will give Cloudflare Apps developers access to a wide range of benefits including $3k - $100k of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) credits at no cost for one year. Some startups will also be eligible for 24/7 technical support, and access to GCP’s technical solutions team.
Google Cloud Platform provides a comprehensive set of solutions and highly-scalable, reliable infrastructure to build applications. Through this partnership, GCP credits can be used for anything from hosting interactive elements of their Apps, to doing advanced analytics and data crunching to provide next-level features to their App’s user-base. Google’s machine learning and artificial intelligence APIs are also included, opening the door to Cloudflare Apps which would have been unimaginable just a few years ago.
“We’ve been collaborating with Google for years, and working together for this initiative was a no-brainer. Now we’re working together to help drive innovation and democratize access to Internet tools that help developers and our customers accomplish things that were impossible before,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “This is just another example of how we’re continuing to find new and collaborative ways to encourage app development and unlock access to Cloudflare’s global infrastructure in a scalable way.”
In June, 2017, Cloudflare announced its $100 million Cloudflare Developer Fund, backed by venture capital investors, New Enterprise Associates, Pelion Venture Partners, and Venrock, to finance startups building applications on the Cloudflare Apps Platform.
Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world use of cloud-based services.
