There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require. With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's backbone network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.
