Today, we are announcing that SendGrid has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program as a Technology Partner. SendGrid is the first non-native email solution available to Google App Engine customers as part of the partner program, giving developers a trusted third-party option for adding transactional email management and delivery to their applications. This collaboration brings SendGrid’s leading email deliverability service to more than 300,000 unique monthly Google Cloud Platform developers to easily build, maintain, and scale as their apps grow.

Google’s Cloud Platform products enable customers to implement:

  • Cloud app solutions, such as mobile apps, social apps, business process apps, and websites, using Google App Engine and Google Cloud SQL.

  • Cloud storage solutions, such as high-end backup and recovery, active archiving, global file sharing/collaboration, and primary SAN/NAS, using Google Cloud Storage.

  • Large-scale computing solutions, such as batch processing, data processing and high performance computing using Google Compute Engine.

  • Big data solutions, such as interactive tools, trend detection and BI dashboards, using Google BigQuery and Google Prediction API.

The Google Cloud Platform Partner Program includes Technology Partners such as ISVs and SaaS vendors, platform companies, management and development tools vendors, analytics providers, business intelligence and ETL vendors, and storage specialists.  These partners offer complementary technologies that have already been integrated to provide customers with powerful new solutions on top of Google’s Cloud Platform.

With SendGrid as a Google Cloud Platform Partner, Google App Engine customers won’t have to worry about signing of email with domain keys, bounced emails, blacklists, ISP outreach or reputation monitoring to ensure mail reaches the inbox.  And Google App Engine customers will now have access to SendGrid’s real-time analytics and reporting including Web, Sub-User, Inbound Parse and Event APIs, all powered by the same infrastructure that powers Google services.

With our respective services now integrated, developers have a great way to build, test and deploy your apps and ensure your apps’ email gets delivered, all on the Google Cloud Platform.  SendGrid’s availability on the Google Cloud Platform confirms our mutual commitment to developers, through the provision of a scalable platform and services designed to allow developers to focus on building phenomenal apps.

For Google App Engine developers, there’s a great way to get started with SendGrid’s leading email deliverability infrastructure and to build web apps on the same scalable systems that power Google applications.
