Google Cloud Storage

What is Google Cloud Storage?

Google Cloud Storage is a reliable data lake that is used for secure storage of unstructured data within a secure, performant and scalable environment.

What are the benefits of Google Cloud Storage?

Use MetaRouter's Google Cloud Storage integration to store raw customer data events in an unstructured environment. MetaRouter is planning to support the use of customer data event logs in GCS to replay data through MetaRouter, which is valuable for re-sending data to vendors and/or populating events and user data within new tools.

Google Cloud Storage Key Features

  • Private data stream that can never be co-mingled with anyone else's data
  • Playbooks that let you control how data is processed prior to reaching GCS
  • Unstructured environment for customer data gives you ultimate flexibility
  • Addressable third-party IDs are provided within your data lake when paired with the Sync Injector
