Google Cloud and Central Dutch Government Sign Workspace Agreement

Google Cloud | May 31, 2022

Google Cloud said today that it has secured a new arrangement with the Central Dutch Government, allowing the Dutch government to use Google Workspace's suite of tools and services. This new arrangement, which follows the Google Workspace for Education agreement inked last year, would enable Central Dutch public sector enterprises, such as government departments, to adopt multi-cloud more easily. The new agreement's goal is to make it easier and more efficient for Central Dutch government agencies to use the entire suite of Google Workspace tools under pre-negotiated terms. Organizations will be able to fully utilize various technologies, including industry-leading products like Chat, Docs, Meet, and Sheets, to serve Dutch residents better and enable new hybrid-working environments. "This is a milestone for Google Cloud's relationship with the Central Dutch Government, as we see the results of the DPIAs come to fruition. We've designed Google Workspace products and solutions, including Google Workspace for Education, to secure and protect the privacy of our customers' data. Our tools will empower the Dutch public sector, while adhering to strict security and privacy requirements. We are also looking forward to supporting greater choice and flexibility for public sector entities and are already doing so for education institutions across the Netherlands, providing access to innovative solutions, with cutting-edge security and greater resiliency," JorisSchoonis, managing director Benelux, Google Cloud. In 2020, the Dutch Central Government began a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) on Google Workspace, and representatives from the Dutch education sector began a DPIA on Google Workspace for Education, which is a standard step when such organizations are considering to purchase new technology. DPIAs aid firms in better understanding how they process and secure personal data, as well as defining GDPR compliance limits. The Central Dutch Government, Dutch education sector organizations/institutions, and Google Cloud reached an agreement as a consequence of this process and will continue to collaborate on the DPIA recommendations. This deal marks a new chapter in the Central Dutch Government's, Dutch public sector entities', and Google Cloud's long-standing partnership.

Alkira Unveils Fastest Cloud Access through Cloud Area Networking

Alkira | June 22, 2022

Alkira introduced Cloud Area Networking, a cutting-edge network that quickly connects networking teams to the cloud. A complete stack, edge-to-cloud enterprise-grade network with integrated routing and network services makes up the ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind solution. It is the only network entirely developed in the cloud and provided as a service, requiring neither the purchase of hardware nor the setup of agents. Slow cloud installations are a problem for even the most savvy businesses. The inefficiency results from juggling many networking silos with various tools and capabilities. The key to success is unification, which requires complex manual settings and specialist cloud expertise. Warner Music Group, Koch Industries, Tekion, and other companies have already benefited from solutions from Alkira Cloud Area Networking. Network engineers and architects can now set up unified global networks and cloud on-ramps using only a browser and a mouse. Work that once took months to perform is now completed in hours. The whole development, management, and use of the network is automated using Alkira Cloud Area Networking. No hardware or software has to be installed. Cloud Area of Alkira Cloud and multi-cloud deployments are significantly accelerated by networking. By combining all users, sites, clouds, and vendors into a single network, it achieves this. Total end-to-end visibility, compliance, security, and more are the outcomes. With one-off, unmaintainable network deployments, organizations may cease adding to their technological debt. Alkira Cloud Area Networking is designed to be repeatable in the future. Blueprinted. Automated. For optimum operational agility, it seamlessly connects with the CI/CD pipeline. Delivering a single policy posture across the whole on-premises and cloud network is made simpler as a result. “Organizations looking to transform their networks are often surprised by the vast magnitude and intricacies of the undertaking. The complexity of existing networking and security architecture, lack of uniform policies across on-prem and public cloud, and limited network visibility all combine to create lengthy, error-prone implementations that are difficult to monitor. Cloud Area Networking technologies that automate all that tedious plumbing can be a compelling solution for organizations that want to quickly embrace the speed and agility of the cloud,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, Vice President of Research, Network Management, at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “Until now, enterprises had a choice between shoe-horning last-generation technology into the cloud or using orchestration tools to hide the complexity. Enterprises are reaching the limit on how much they can patch their increasingly fragmented network. The Alkira way, the Cloud Area Networking way, is a single, enterprise-grade network infrastructure built for the cloud but grounded in reality,” Amir Khan, Chief Executive Officer of Alkira
