Broadcom Picks Google cloud to host core SaaS offerings

Broadcom has announced plans to migrate its cloud-based software-as-a-service offerings from Amazon Web Services and its on-premises servers to Google Cloud, according to CRN. “The majority of our workloads were in our own data centers. Thanks to moving to Google, we don‘t need to worry about that level of technology, management and integration anymore,” said Broadcom Vice President and General Manager of network and information security software, Rob Greer. The company had earlier moved some of its other software, including Cloud SOC Cloud Access Security Broker Cloud DLP Content Detection Service and Symantec Web Security Service, to Google Cloud. Now the rest of the software in Broadcom’s portfolio, including operations, payment security offerings, cybersecurity products, DevOps, NetOps and ValueOps, will be hosted on the Google Cloud infrastructure. Broadcom is also looking to leverage Google Cloud offerings including Cloud SQL, Cloud Bigtable and Dataproc toward the evolution of its enterprise-wide data and analytics strategy. “Data is in our DNA, and what we have seen ... because of the pandemic, the whole digital transformation for various different enterprises has accelerated. Without data and analytics, it’s very difficult to run modern businesses these days,” said Debanjan Saha, Google Cloud’s vice president and general manager of data analytics.
