Google has announced that it has acquired cloud monitoring services provider Stackdriver.
Google is looking to enhance its cloud services with this newly available technology.
“Stackdriver has built a leading service to help developers intelligently monitor the apps and services they’re building and running in the cloud,” says Google product manager Tom Kershaw. “This allows customers to have more visibility into errors, performance, behavior, and operations. The teams are going to be working to integrate Stackdriver’s great functionality so that Google Cloud Platform customers can take advantage of these new advanced monitoring capabilities.”
Stackdriver had this to say in a message on its website:
Our new colleagues on the Google Cloud Platform team share our passion for helping developers build great products. They also know a thing or two about data visualization, analytics, and cloud computing. We could not be more excited to join forces and innovate together.
We remain committed to delivering a world-class service for Stackdriver’s current and future customers–regardless of your chosen infrastructure provider. And because Google is fully committed to the cloud, expect us to continue to be as agile and responsive as ever as we begin this next chapter in our journey.
Google has also planned to invest more into cloud technology, but how it will go about it is still unclear. Either by taking over companies or by developing their homegrown technologies.
