In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s more than one big-time cloud platform in town. When Google Cloud Next ’18 rolls into San Francisco on July 24-26, thousands of cloud developers, operations experts, and other technical leaders will experience a “global exhibition of inspiration, innovation, and education where we learn from one another how the cloud can transform how we work and power everyone’s successes.”

Covering everything from the deeply technical to the visionary, the conference will focus on several key themes:

  • Application development
  • Collaboration & productivity
  • Data analytics
  • Infrastructure & operations
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Machine learning & artificial intelligence
  • Mobility & devices
  • Security

New Relic and the Google Cloud Platform

We’re focused on the power of a DevOps approach to maximize the value of the cloud, and how to leverage New Relic to help both developers and operations move faster, build faster, and scale faster. 

Recently, New Relic has taken a number of important steps to make monitoring Google Cloud Platform (GCP) applications and infrastructure more powerful, more flexible, and easier than ever. That’s especially important in multi-cloud environments, where New Relic provides a single solution to monitor GCP data as well as data from on-premise, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure infrastructures.

Specifically, we’ve added new integrations designed to let you monitor your GCP Data—including Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Functions, Google App Engine—from several New Relic products, including New Relic Infrastructure, New Relic Insights, and New Relic Alerts. We’ve also announced a new Kubernetes integration.

Of course, we’re still working hard to make our GCP support as robust as possible. Stay tuned to the New Relic blog for more news, and drop by the booth for the latest scoop.
