Google Cloud, HashiCorp expand partnership to integrate AI in cloud

Google Cloud and HashiCorp announced an expansion of their partnership, focusing on integrating generative AI into cloud solutions for their mutual customers. The collaboration aims to introduce AI-powered features in HashiCorp’s product suite, utilizing Google Cloud’s Vertex AI platform.

As part of the partnership, Google Cloud will become the preferred AI provider for HashiCorp. HashiCorp plans to leverage Vertex AI to create interfaces that allow customers to use natural language commands for tasks like dashboard creation and insight development. The partnership also includes efforts to train AI models specifically tailored to the needs of HashiCorp customers.

In addition, HashiCorp will integrate support for Google Cloud’s Duet AI for Developers. This integration will focus on training Duet AI with information about Terraform, HashiCorp’s infrastructure as code tool, to assist in writing configurations and automating infrastructure tasks.

This partnership extension between HashiCorp and Google Cloud builds on their existing relationship, which has delivered solutions to shared customers like Deutsche Bank, Simpli.fi, and Vodafone.
