Brent Ozar reports on Google cloud improvements:

Google Compute Engine is infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), selling virtual machines by the hour like Azure VMs and AWS EC2. You can run whatever you like in these VMs, and Google has long supported running SQL Server in GCE. You could build your own SQL Servers, or use pre-built (and licensed) instances of SQL Server 2012, 2014, or 2016 – but only Standard or Web Editions.

Today, GCE supports Enterprise Edition AND Always On Availability Groups.

We’ve got a white paper coming soon on how to build and test it, plus more cool stuff in the pipeline that DBAs will love.

We live in interesting times.
