Google on July 14 announced a new platform that will allow users to directly access data stored in Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. 

The solution, dubbed BigQuery Omni, allows clients to use Google's serverless cloud data warehouse BigQuery for data stored in Google Cloud, AWS and Azure. Previously, BigQuery, which analyzes data, runs analytics and creates business insights for users, could only be run on data stored in Google Cloud, according to the news release. 

BigQuery Omni allows users to query data across public clouds without having to move or copy any data sets. More than 80 percent of cloud platform clients use more than one cloud service provider, according to a recent Garner survey on public cloud adoption. 

"For our customers, data is no longer one room in the house — it's the foundation. However, moving data across different clouds is both cumbersome and expensive," said Debanjan Saha, Google Cloud general manager and vice president of engineering. "With BigQuery Omni, customers will get a multicloud analytics solution that enables them to gain critical data insights in one unified experience." 

BigQuery Omni is available in private alpha testing on AWS and support for Azure is set to be released soon.
