Helping SaaS companies run reliably on Google Cloud

PARTNERS Helping SaaS companies run reliably on Google Cloud Chirag Mehta Global Technology Partners Henry Robertson Customer Reliability Engineering August 16, 2018 Two years ago,  we announced  Customer Reliability Engineering (CRE) with the aim to share operational fate with our customers and give them more control over the critical applications they're entrusting to us. Since then we’ve worked with a number of companies, and we’ve seen that the more systems a business has collected, inherited, or acquired, the greater its operational burden.

The life saving option in Gmail - "Confidential Mode"

Once you press the “send” button in gmail, it’s gone and it’s out of your control. You can’t do anything about it. Either you can press “undo” as quickly as you can or ask the relevant person or party to delete it. What if you lose both the chances? Though we ask a relevant party to delete, there is only a 50% chance that it will get deleted, maybe it is deleted after taking a copy, so you are actually helpless at this moment. So to get some control into your hand Google has introduced an amazing feature called “Confidential Mode” to keep your things safe & secure. You can call it a “life saving option.” Because this option will not let a person forward the mail, will not let anybody to download or copy.
