Will the non-Google Alphabet companies still have access to Google's software engineering infrastructure?

They will probably have to "pay" for it. It will make it easier to figure out net gains and losses within each venture. I expect this to increase the reported revenue of Google (infrastructure), as significant costs incur in infrastructure management.

On the other hand is also possible that Alphabet companies can use the google's "cloud" infrastructure with a significant discount.

I'm less curious about infrastructure that be commoditized and more about things like shared source code and access to subject-matter experts working on various teams at Google.

*can be commoditized
