No matter how secure you are you can’t beat Google security system. The biggest proof is that Apple, a company proud of its security and sophistication in a recent report by CNBC confirmed that it is using Google’s public Cloud system to store data and power its ICloud. Reports also said that Apple has been relying on Google’s cloud since 2016 there is no further proof when it started or has Apple been using Gooogle Cloud since day one.
Apple previously used cloud solutions system provided by Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure as well. Apple’s edition of the iOS Security Guide in March 2017 still listed Microsoft Azure instead of Google Cloud Platform.The new edition describes its iCloud service: “The encrypted chunks of the file are stored, without any user-identifying information, using third-party storage services, such as [Amazon] S3 and Google Cloud Platform.”
The report wasn’t clear enough on how much data or what type of data is stored on it and it doesn’t also explain when Apple first made the switch. Apart from other Google public cloud customers include Kroger, PayPal, Snap, and Spotify.
Earlier this month Google said its public cloud and its G Suite line of cloud-based productivity apps contribute $1 billion in revenue per quarter. In the fourth quarter, market leader Amazon Web Services brought in $5.11 billion in revenue.
