HiT Certifies DBMoto for Google Cloud
November 5, 2013 Alex Woodie
Developers who are writing applications that use Google Cloud SQL and the App Engine Datastore for Google can now use HiT Software‘s DBMoto data replication tools to hook into “legacy” data stores (such as IBM i apps) and feel good about it because they’re certified.
The certification performed by HiT for its DBMoto and DBMoto cloud G Edition is key, as it added visibility to the pool of developers who are riding “the Big G’s” cloud platform. This is good news for HiT Software, the BackOffice Associates subsidiary that moves data to and from DB2 for IBM i databases, in addition to all other standard relational databases (and some more exotic ones, such as HP Vertica, too).
“As businesses move their data solutions to the cloud for better storage and accessibility, we can provide a point-and-click method to update that data in real-time from onsite or regional operational data,” said Giacomo Lorenzin, managing director for HiT Software.
The Google App Engine and Google Cloud SQL platforms are key to Big G’s strategy to host the next generation of cloud applications, including mobile apps, social apps, business process apps, e-commerce applications, and big data analytical apps.
Google works with other technology providers to achieve this goal, and now HiT Software is a part of that ecosystem. “To help customers get the most out of our cloud platform products we work closely with technology companies, like BackOffice Associates’ HiT Software, that provide powerful complementary solutions integrated with our platform,” says Shailesh Rao, director of new products and solutions for Google Cloud Platform.
