Why no mention of the Google Cloud partnership?

Google also wants to better extend connectivity to IoT platforms through a new partnership with IoT platform Particle, making it easier to pipe data from any Particle-connected device to the Google Cloud Platform. They’ve started by attaching Particle devices to bikes on Google campuses to better understand their usage.

Saw this and wondered if this is eluding to some sort of persistent storage in the future… Anything in particular planned via this partnership?
