From January 1, 2021, Google Cloud Print will no longer be supported and devices across all operating systems will not be able to print using Google Cloud Print. directprint.io is here to help you migrate.
Print reliability and control should be at the top of the list for System Administrators.
Your organization is adopting serverless IT infrastructure, but you still have a mix of Windows PCs and Chromebooks. Google Cloud Print will be retired at the end of 2020, so what are your options?
Introducing print servers is the opposite direction of travel to the rest of your IT infrastructure. You’ve already cloudified your email, backup and other mission critical services. Don’t allow print to be the only service that remains on-premises. Print server hardware or virtualization requires admin effort. Distributed organizations will need to manage servers or traffic between sites – not easy. Look for a serverless print solution.

Administrating two systems for a single business function (printing) is also not efficient – in fact it’s double the effort.
