CARTO and Google announce strategic partnership

CARTO announced its collaboration with Google Cloud and is now a Google Cloud Partner. This follows CARTO’s work building their Data Observatory 2.0. It will utilize the incredible foundations and capabilities of Google Cloud and BigQuery and the release of their BigQuery connector which will allow the connection of one’s data stored in Google BigQuery to their CARTO account with simple SQL query for a wide range of use cases.

Along with this strategic partnership, CARTO also announced the availability of the world’s leading Location Intelligence platform on the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace (GCP). It is a step forward in achieving its vision to enable clients with next-generation spatial data infrastructure.

Javier de la Torre, founder and chief strategy officer, CARTO said that they are very excited to see CARTO go live on the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace. A wide range of clients in Retail, CPG, Telecoms, Healthcare, and beyond are using our technologies together – and that they’re sure that this integration will enable more companies to use spatial analysis in their business during a more seamless fashion.

Performance

Google Cloud offers a good range of Virtual Instances that span from 2 to 416 cores and from 2GB to five .8TB of RAM. Without some fine-tuning, extracting value from this vertical scalability are often difficult.

CARTO says that they have worked hard to ensure that users do not have to worry about this, bringing some of their deployment technology to GCP Solutions, giving users full value for every new vCPU they use.

Ready in 3 minutes

After filling the initial deployment form with some configuration basics, user will have a production-ready instance deployed in just 3 minutes!

Deployment options

CARTO will be available in two different flavors on GCP:

Bring Your Own License (carto-enterprise-byol): User’s instance will be created, but the CARTO stack won’t start working until a valid subscription is activated.
Pay as you go (carto-enterprise-payg, coming soon): User will be up and running immediately and pay per minute of usage depending on the GB of RAM and vCPUs.

CARTO believes that this partnership is just the beginning for many more announcements on product integrations to come.
