Google, the leading global search engine Company which also provides cloud services and a bunch of other services and solutions, announced that the Company would be launching its own updated Cloud CDN service soon. As of now, Google is already accepting applications from users and developers who want to try out the Alpha version of its Google CDN Cloud when it is released.
This announcement has come after Google recently signed-up in an agreement with Akamai, the global CDN leader, for a Cloud Interconnect. Apart from this, Google also has been in business with a bunch of other CDN providers including CloudFlare, Highwinds, Level 3 and Fastly, and launching its Cloud CDN service will make Google a direct competitor with all these Companies. That said, Google Cloud CDN’s largest competition will probably be Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, which are the current global cloud services leaders.
