Following last week’s announcement that IT company Optimation has joined forces with Barbador, Australasian based Google Enterprise Partner Barbador today announced it has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program as a Services Partner. Barbador specialises in building innovative cloud-based solutions that enable clients to innovate, simplify and transform.

“The Google Cloud Platform Partner Program will enable us to provide trusted expert services to help our clients develop new and innovative cloud-based solutions that drive their success in the market by building on the power of the Google Cloud Platform,” said Surinder Saini Director Cloud Services for Barbador. “The Google Cloud Platform offers a broad set of exciting application development, cloud storage, large scale computing, and big data capabilities that provides our clients with an opportunity to change the way they solve business problems in today’s fast, competitive and ever-changing environment.”

Google’s Cloud Platform (http://cloud.google.com/index.html) products enable customers to implement:

Cloud app solutions, such as mobile apps, social apps, business process apps, and websites, using Google App Engine and Google Cloud SQL
Cloud storage solutions, such as high-end backup and recovery, active archiving, global file sharing/collaboration, and primary SAN/NAS, using Google Cloud Storage
Large-scale computing solutions, such as batch processing, data processing and high performance computing using Google Compute Engines
Big data solutions, such as interactive tools, trend detection and BI dashboards, using Google Big Query and Google Prediction API

“To help customers get the most out of our cloud platform products,” explains Eric Morse, Head of Sales and Business Development, for Google’s Cloud Platform, “we work closely with services firms, like Barbador, that have invested in developing the skills to deliver business solutions on top of Google’s Cloud Platform.” Barbador sources its velocity from its backer Optimation, an IT services provider with over 270 staff and a twenty year heritage in system integration to assist enterprises on their journey to cloud.
