"Google plans to be an “innovation partner” with Evernote, the popular note-taking and productivity service that today said it will move from its own servers to Google’s cloud, said Diane Greene, senior VP of Google Cloud Platform, in an onstage interview.

“At an engagement, when we can get our engineers together, they see we’ve got everything they need,” Greene said at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco. “The security of Evernote’s data is paramount, and we worked to show them how they can rely on us.” Evernote, with 200 million users and five billion notes, was founded eight years ago, when there was no public cloud, Greene observed. “Now they’ll be able innovate faster in their business, with us innovating for them on the back end.”"
