Evernote’s Future Is in the Cloud

We believe it can. With Google Cloud Platform, Evernote will gain significant improvements in performance, security, efficiency, and scalability. Moving to the cloud also allows us to focus time and resources on the things that matter most. For us, that means building the best home for your notes and giving you the tools to use them more effectively. It’s the right choice.

We are currently working with the Google team to finalize our architecture, and will begin syncing data to new servers in early October, a process that will require several weeks. We anticipate a complete migration by the end of 2016.

What this means for you

The transition to the cloud will occur completely in the background. You should see no impact to your service during the transition, and you do not need to take any action. Behind the scenes, Evernote will become faster, stronger, and more stable.The security and privacy of your data were topmost in mind as we considered moving to the cloud. We are confident that the

match the security we currently have in place while adding encryption at rest, a feature many users have asked for in the past.Evernote remains committed to the same

that have always guided us:

  • Your Data is Yours
  • Your Data is Protected
  • Your Data is Portable

Your notes are not owned by Evernote, or by Google. They are yours and yours alone. Questions?

What this means for Evernote

While your experience will be largely unchanged, behind the scenes there will be tremendous benefits that will help us improve your use of Evernote in the near future. Critical infrastructure upgrades that currently take days will be completed in seconds. Resources will be freed to accelerate current development and improve our core products. We’ll even be able to roll out feature updates to our customers in less time.In addition to scale, speed, and stability, Google will also give Evernote access to some of the same deep-learning technologies that power services like translation, photo management, and voice search. We look forward to taking advantage of these technologies to help you more easily connect your ideas, search for information in Evernote, and find the right note at the moment you need it. That’s exciting to us, and we’re already exploring some ideas that we think you’ll love.We feel that Google Cloud Platform is a great fit for Evernote’s needs, now and into the future. Some of the world’s most innovative brands, including Spotify, Snapchat, Coca-Cola and Philips already rely on Google Cloud Platform. We are thrilled to take this step to build a faster, more powerful, and better home for your most important notes and ideas.
