Looks like he is true to his word, as Google is all set to acquire Israel and California based cloud migration company Alooma, which helps other companies move their data from multiple sources into one data warehouse. To date, Alooma has raised approximately $15 Million from investors such as Lightspeed Venture Partners and Sequoia Capital Israel.
Details about the transaction have not been disclosed yet.
“Here at Google Cloud, we’re committed to helping enterprise customers easily and securely migrate their data to our platform. The addition of Alooma, subject to closing conditions, is a natural fit that allows us to offer customers a streamlined, automated migration experience to Google Cloud, and give them access to our full range of database services, from managed open source database offerings to solutions like Cloud Spanner and Cloud Bigtable. This simplified migration path also opens the door for customers to take advantage of all the technologies we have to offer, including analytics, security, AI and machine learning.
One of the things we’re most excited about with Alooma is the deep expertise for both enterprise and open source databases that their team brings to Google Cloud, which will be critical in helping us build out additional migration capabilities within Google Cloud Platform. We’re also looking forward to adding to our growing Google Cloud footprint in Israel, which includes the Velostrata team we added last summer.”
“…Today, we are thrilled to share that Alooma has entered into an agreement to join Google Cloud to further this effort, subject to customary closing conditions.
This acquisition is the evolution of our long-standing partnership with Google Cloud. It follows several native integrations, over the years, from Google Ads and Analytics to Cloud Spanner and BigQuery.
From the very beginning we’ve been humbled to serve thousands of customers and partners, and grateful for the trust they’ve placed in us. We believe that as part of Google Cloud — bringing together the best-in-class data migration and integration services — we can make our customers and partners even more data-driven and successful.”
