The internet giant says it plans to focus on developing technology that helps organizations and businesses manage their IT systems, rather than on building a proprietary solution.
Google said in a blog post that the company has long worked with technology vendors, but has only recently focused on building an open standard to bring in the latest software and hardware.
It said that the new open standards would allow companies to focus more on delivering services, rather from a technical perspective.
“Our goal is to make sure we get it right, so we’re working hard on creating an open, flexible and powerful technology standard,” Google said.
Google doesn, however, acknowledge that the goal of the standards is to provide a unified framework for technology.
“There are multiple competing technologies on the market today that are built on a proprietary model,” Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai wrote.
“And there are competing open standards, which can often have a different structure.
In addition, there are open standards for interoperability and security, which don’t fit well with the needs of our customers.”
Google has been pushing the idea of standards since the company was founded more than 30 years ago.
The company has used open standards like the Linux operating system and OpenStack, and closed ones like the OpenStack cloud.
But Google’s open-source approach has attracted the ire of some tech giants, who say the company’s approach is too proprietary and too reliant on the work of proprietary technology vendors.
“We think the open web is the future,” Google wrote.
It has since hired a number of leading IT experts and hired new employees to work on its open-sourced efforts.
Pichay has also been pushing to build a new cloud-computing standard, though it’s not clear if that standard will be called OpenStack or something else.
The OpenStack Foundation, a non-profit group that helps build and support the project, has also expressed its opposition to the standard.
“Google has created a situation where it is more important to be open and transparent than to be able to deliver high quality software,” it wrote in a recent blog post.
Google is now pushing to bring together open-world standards and open-systems approaches.
Google’s decision to create an open-platform approach to cloud computing comes amid growing criticism of Microsoft’s cloud-based offerings, which have drawn criticism from some IT experts.
Microsoft, for example, recently announced that it would stop using OpenStack in its cloud solutions.
Google and Microsoft have also clashed over whether to allow companies, such as Google, to use open-access data that comes from other companies, instead of having the data published.
The move is seen as a step toward Microsoft’s new approach, which is also being seen as the opposite of the open-ness that Google and others have pushed for.
