BigQuery Omni is a new feature that will complement Google Cloud technology by enabling users to run analytics across data in Google Cloud and AWS (Amazon Web Services). The company introduced this new solution at the Next OnAir 2020, a 9-week digital event about Google Cloud technology.
BigQuery Omni is an innovative extension that Google decided to create due to the increasing enterprises’ need to securely perform multi-cloud data analysis. The next integration that is expected to be soon added to the well-known and intuitive BigQuery interface is access to Microsoft’s Azure.
Yet another product in Google Cloud’s Confidential Computing portfolio that has been launched is Confidential VMs (Virtual Machines). Confidential VMs take this to the next level by offering memory encryption so that you can further isolate your workloads in the cloud.
