Blog 5: How free funds can help you go further with Google Cloud

Google Cloud is changing what’s possible in the cloud with advanced technologies like analytics and machine learning capabilities. That means cloud migrations are no longer just about lifting and shifting workloads to the cloud, but about fundamentally transforming the way we do business.

When it comes to public cloud offerings, Google is differentiating itself from the pack with its emphasis on advanced analytics, machine learning, and Internet-scale services. Google is also a major contributor to the open source ecosystem, developing game-changing technologies like Kubernetes for managing containerized workloads and services.

While migrating to the cloud may be the fastest approach to building out these capabilities, it can still take months, or even years, to get there. But the right partner can help you get there faster—and do it right the first time. And having some extra funding doesn’t hurt, either.

Do more with our Matching Funds Bank

Whether you’re new to Google Cloud or an existing customer, you’ll gain access to a host of free perks when you establish a Google Cloud billing relationship with Pythian. No long-term commitment is required; you can even choose to bill month-to-month.

That includes access to a Matching Funds Bank of up to 2% as part of our Blast of Benefits, which can help you lay a foundation for next-gen technologies such as advanced analytics and machine learning. Your commitment level will determine the amount of the match and when the funds become available.

Here’s how it works:

  • A percentage of your actual or committed Google Cloud usage is placed in a Matching Funds Bank.
  • Pythian will match up to 2% of your spend on any additional Pythian managed or professional service on a dollar-for-dollar basis (up to the maximum amount).
  • Matching funds can be combined with Google Cloud Partner Services Funds (PSFs).

So what can you do with your matching funds?
