Google Cloud on Tuesday is rolling out a new data orchestration tool called Cloud Composer. It's based on Apache Airflow, an open-source project focused on workflows, created Airbnb.In recent years, Google has made a concerted effort to win corporate clients and take on Amazon Web Services in the public cloud. It's done so in part by offering a range of competitive cloud services and platform tools. However, that pitch to corporate clients "kind of falls apart if you don't have a great way to orchestrate and tie these tools together," James Maloney, a Google Cloud product manager, said to ZDNet.Cloud Composer, which is launching Tuesday in closed beta, aims to solve that problem by giving customers an easy way to use all of Google Cloud's tools. Google chose to build a managed Apache Airflow service for a variety of reasons. For one thing, all Airflow scripts are based on Python, which is highly approachable. "Anyone can spend an hour or two and become an Airflow developer," Maloney … [Read more...] about Google rolls out Cloud Composer for data orchestration

Google today launched Cloud Composer, a managed Apache Airflow service, in beta. The tool is designed for consistent workflow creation and management. Analysts and engineers use workflows to automate manual processes, saving time and reducing the possibility of errors. These workflows and the mechanisms that run them, often critical pieces of infrastructure, range from ad-hoc scripts to full-featured frameworks, the management of which can be time-intensive and error-prone. The Google Cloud team wants to solve this problem with a single managed solution at the platform level. Cloud Composer and Airflow currently support BigQuery, Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Dataproc, Cloud Datastore, Cloud Storage, and Cloud Pub/Sub. Pricing for Cloud Composer is consumption-based, so you pay for what you use, as measured by vCPU/hour, GB/month, and GB transferred/month — there are multiple pricing units because Cloud Composer uses several GCP products as building blocks. Here is Google’s … [Read more...] about Google launches Cloud Composer beta, a managed Apache Airflow service
If you're an Android developer, you may find yourself spending quite a bit of time dealing with the Google Play Developer Console. There has always been a solid set of features, but Google has just made a new redesign of the site live to try out. And, as per the Google way, the new Developer Console has been designed to be faster and easier to navigate. The redesign was first shown off at Google I/O and has been tested extensively. It looks clean but with pops of color, much like the redesigns we've seen across Google's web products like Gmail, Calendar, Google+, etc. The console has also added new tools to make it easier to track your apps over time. You can more easily see sales over time, ratings for each version of your apps, and ratings based on the different regions around the world where your app is available. Publishing apps has also been streamlined and should be faster and easier. Additionally, listings can now be automatically translated into 49 different … [Read more...] about Redesigned Google Play Developer Console now live

And how will it be different to existing cloud gaming services?Read on.What is Google Yeti and how will it work?Google Yeti - as it is reportedly codenamed - is said to be a subscription-based streaming platform whereby members can play any of the games available on the service, but don't have to download them or purchase them individually.That's because, through dedicated hardware or an application for phones, tablets and/or TVs, you play the game in real time, but it's actually run on a remote server somewhere else in the world. The video of the gameplay is transmitted to your device over the internet, while the control codes from a game controller are sent in the other … [Read more...] about What is Google Yeti?

0. phoneArena posted on 28 Jun 2013, 11:20 Last night, a story broke from The Wall Street Journal that Google was working towards expanding its hardware portfolio by building a game console, a smart watch, and a new version of the Nexus Q. The smart watch makes sense, because that is not only a segment where competition is aiming, but because a smart watch makes logical sense for the future of Android, Google products, and an alternative to Glass. The trouble I have is with the ideas of a game console and a new version of the Nexus Q, which makes little sense given how little support Google has put towards Google TV...
