New Consumption Packs for Google Cloud Channel Partners
Google Cloud is looking to “accelerate” channel partners’ ability to migrate customers to the cloud by releasing nine purpose-built consumer packs that provide partners with different models to “simplify” the delivery of Google Cloud solutions, according to Google’s Nina Harding Cloud.
“Consumer packs are specifically designed so partners can plan and launch customer projects much faster, with predictable funding,” said Harding, global head of partner benefit programs and strategy for Google Cloud, in a blog post. “They include assets and templates that enable partners to deliver Google Cloud-designed and validated infrastructure, migration and application modernization plans to customers faster than ever before, especially for customers beginning their journey to the clouds.”
Each new pack includes pre-determined funding options for a variety of deployments, project templates, workload migration options, and everything a partner needs to conduct assessments, workshops, and proofs of concept. .
