Over the past two years, there has been a seismic increase in global demand for infrastructure and services from cloud service providers.
Whether the company knows it or not, most of our online business, from work to play and everything in between, depends on web products hosted in the cloud. However, this growing demand has not always meant increased revenues for the operators providing these services.
âWhen I look at the industry itself, unfortunately all this huge demand does not translate in income, because as an industry, turnover is still stable â, said Amol Phadke (photo), managing director and head of global telecom industry solutions at Google Cloud. “In fact, projected revenues globally for the industry over the next 12 months is three to 5% negative on income, right? So we start to wonder how come there is so much demand in the last two years, after the pandemic, and that does not translate into income? “
Phadke spoke with Jean Furrier, host of theCUBE, the live streaming studio of SiliconANGLE Media, at the World Mobile Congress Event. They discussed current developments in the DevOps landscape with regards to edge computing, 5G and Google Anthos. (* Disclosure below.)
Anthos partners with CSPs as a development platform
Over the past decade, there has been a lot of soul-searching at Google, especially from a solutions perspective. Over time, the company took all of its internal technology foundations and outsourced them to serve an outside audience.
âWe entered the market a few years ago with Anthos. We recognized … the world is moving towards hybrid multicloud cloud. We had to provide a common platform that the developer community can use through microservices and APIs. And this platform was, by definition, works not only from Google Cloud, but any cloud. It could work on any public cloud, it can run on CSP’s private cloud, and of course, on Google Cloud, âPhadke said, describing the platform’s original circumstances.
Anthos is now partnering with cloud service providers as a development platform, allowing them to overlay all kinds of apps, with support for 5G Edge. A client’s entire development community can then be seamlessly integrated into the Anthos fabric, according to Phadke.
