On Tuesday, Evernote announced that it is moving the to Google Cloud Platform for its cloud-based services. The company has run its services from its own data centers since its launch in 2008.
Evernote is a note-taking and productivity service and Google plans to be an innovation partner with them.
Diane Greene, VP of Google Cloud Platform said :
At an engagement, when we can get our engineers together, they see we’ve got everything they need.
The security of Evernote’s data is paramount, and we worked to show them how they can rely on us.
Evernote is migrating all of its data, including about 5 billion notes, to Google’s Cloud Platform. As part of that, it will also start to use Google’s machine learning APIs to help access and use data in different ways.
Evernote claims that it will be shutting down its previous storage architecture that was based on a private cloud infrastructure. Evernote’s new CTO Anirban Kundu said that the first two areas that will be replaced by Google’s machine learning APIs are its voice recognition for speech-to-text translations and natural language processing which will be used to help search for contextual content.
Evernote says it will start the migration to Google in early October, with “a complete migration by the end of 2016.”
