Automating Workloads in Google Cloud™

The power of true enterprise-class automation.

Job Scheduling vs. Workload Automation: What's the Difference?

Read the Ebook

Google CloudTidal AutomationTM automates and orchestrates workflows across the entire enterprise, maximizing your results from Google Cloud whether you’re running processes entirely in Google Cloud, across other public and private clouds, on-premises, in hybrid environments and/or SaaS applications. Tidal automates integrated workflows across all these diverse environments with a single-pane-of-glass view of all workload activities in addition to support of time- and event-based scheduling.

How is Tidal Automation different?

The Challenge

A point scheduler often schedules jobs only within the boundaries of one application or a specific cloud environment, and executes properly only if all dependencies have been met. Jobs external to that application or cloud environment must be scheduled separately. This fragmented approach to job scheduling creates a risk associated with virtually every point of transition that occurs outside the boundaries of Google Cloud. Interdependencies may be unseen, inaccurate data might be transmitted and jobs can be stalled midstream. These breakdowns outside of Google Cloud are typically not visible until processing is due to complete, so when an error occurs, you won’t know until it’s too late. This lack of visibility can derail SLAs, require extensive IT resources to remediate and impact business outcomes.

The Tidal solution: end-to-end visibility

Tidal can automate complex cross-application workflows that run inside Google Cloud and also run in other cloud/on-premises environments, providing a single-pane-of-glass view into the entire workflow. Tidal executes rigorously and reliably each and every time, supporting up to 1+ million jobs a day. What’s more, Tidal supports time-based, dependency-based and event-based scheduling as well as batch scheduling, accurately and dependably automating the most complex cross-application workflows.

Tidal supports sophisticated calendaring functionality that easily accommodates complex instructions, conditional situations and nested hierarchies. You can optimize infrastructure and staff resources further with customizable notifications and automated error recovery when task failures occur.
