Enterprising work for Google Cloud
The number of large organisations making the move to Google Cloud has been growing rapidly. Senior Vice President of Google Cloud, Diane Greene, was joined on stage by representatives of Enterprise G Suite and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers to talk innovation and infrastructure.
GCP proved a major focus of Next ’17, with eBay producing one of the highlights from the Keynote.
The world’s online marketplace took to the stage during the keynote to talk through how they have incorporated GCP into their infrastructure, helping them to enhance the capabilities of their data centres.

Team Drives has officially launched… And we can get you there
The wait for general release of Team Drives is finally over. Anticipation has been growing for a number of months following its availability through the early adopter program.
Team Drives gives businesses the ability to control content as well as share and manage files at team level within Google Drive rather than with individual users. This means members of a team can all access files within an assigned drive, but when a user leaves the files they put in remain.
As one of Google’s top partners, we’ve been working to make sure that CloudMigrator is ready for the Team Drives launch. Using CloudMigrator will allow you to migrate from any file system including Microsoft Windows, OneDrive for Business, Box, Dropbox for Business. CloudMigrator can even migrate your existing Google Drive folders over to a Team Drive.
As part of the global launch, Cloud Technology Solutions co-founder and CTO, Paul Lees, presented with Google on how to utilise the Google API’s to build enterprise-ready apps.
