Symphony Communication Running its Platform on GCP for Greater Scalability

August 03, 2016

Scalability has become one of the more important capabilities for service providers in the IT segment. They want to be able to expand their services as needed without the limitations of legacy technologies, as well as having the agility to introduce new products to market with greater ease. Symphony Communication Services, a cloud-based communications provider specializing in maintaining organizational compliance, has selected the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to run its services, which will give it the scalability and agility it needs.

The secure cloud communications platform Symphony provides lets large financial institutions migrate mission-critical content and business operations to the cloud, and GCP will introduce new levels of efficiency to make that possible.  The collaboration with GCP is going to give financial services organizations cloud-based communication and content sharing by defining best practices in order to secure these functions.

As Symphony customers and employees communicate and collaborate across borders, Google's cloud infrastructure will deliver the performance and reliability needed to ensure interconnectivity between its global cloud regions.

The GCP suite of public cloud computing services includes compute, storage and application hosted services that run on Google hardware. Its core cloud computing services are Google Compute Engine, Google App Engine, Google Cloud Storage and Google Container Engine. It also includes data processing, analytics, application development and integration services for a comprehensive cloud platform.

The Compute Engine is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering that provides users with VM instances for workload hosting. The App Engine, on the other hand, is a platform as a service (PaaS) solution that makes Google's scalable hosting accessible to software developers along with a software developer kit (SDK) to develop software products that run on App Engine.

These features will be critical as Symphony continues to address the compliance requirements of organizations that are highly regulated such as the financial services industry, a sector that demands security and availability at all times. The CEO of the company said exactly what GCP will deliver for the company, “Running Symphony on the Google Cloud Platform allows us to expand our global footprint and provide greater performance and reliability to our growing customer base.”
