With Google Cloud Platform, users can store large amounts of data in cloud storage and scalable data warehouses with built-in machine learning. Additionally, users have access to relational and non-relational databases for transactions, complex queries, streaming, offline sync, and more. The platform also includes data migration services such as data import for BigQuery, large scale network transfer of data, and a rackable storage server for large volumes of data.

Google Cloud Platform enables users to streamline management workflows with integrated management consoles, browser and mobile device compatibility, and cost optimization tools. The platform also includes a global fiber network, providing users with defense-in-depth network security and reliability. Additional networking features include content delivery, service tiers, telemetry, low-latency DNS serving, traffic management, load balancing, and a network intelligence center for network monitoring, verification, and optimization.

With Google Cloud Platform users can integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) into pre-existing applications using custom or pre-trained modules, as well as gather insights derived from text, speech, video, and images. The platform offers natural language features for cloud translation from any language.

It is easy to use and gives you affordable payment options and even free trials. There are efficient courses on the web which allowed me easy understanding of their use and tools. Provides many tools to use and they are easily listed. It is very safe and my data is safe from hackers

Pros

It is paid but the applications that the user uses are canceled. They make discounts when they reach a certain volume of users. Its storage is recommended and safe. It is inexpensive and provides free trials for the service. It offers virtual machines, databases, network storage among others. It gives us the option to analyze, process and visualize data quickly, efficiently and without volume restriction. You can work with modules together or separately as needed.

Cons

You need to be connected to the web to use it. It is payment. A basic course is required for its understanding. You have less control over the information. The new version restricts the use of the previous ones.

Google Cloud Platform is a good suite of tools most suited to infrastructure-as-a-service

Reviewed on 2021/11/28

Experience has been good, it all works, it's a very stable service and it is reasonably priced.

Experience has been good, it all works, it's a very stable service and it is reasonably priced.

Pros

My organisation mostly uses Google Compute Engine to host all our websites and applications on Google infrastructure. It is a fairly reasonably priced service and very stable, bosting excellent and reliable uptime. You can run a number of officially supported Linux distributions, so you can most likely install what you know. It is all quite easy to setup and manage your servers, though the UI is Google style - so it's not the prettiest - quite minimalist.

Cons

It can start to get expensive once you need to scale, so make sure you look at what that would cost before buy in at the entry level. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the interface, it's a very simple and ugly - but it all works perfectly so it's not a big deal.

Alternatives Considered

Linode, Microsoft Azure and DigitalOcean

I had a semi decent experience with Google Cloud Platform. I had many difficulties when beginning to use it but after you learn the features the platform is very impressionable.

Pros

When using this software, I genuinely feel as if my data is secure and safe. This platform is reliable and allows for great collaboration. It also has strong data analytics which is incredibly useful.

Cons

I found this software difficult to set up as compared to other softwares. There is a very large learning curve associated with this product and I would not categorize it as user friendly. I also found that the product was more expensive and ranked greater in pricing compared to its competitors.

It's been great. Easy for me, easy for clients, and easy for colleagues and collaborators to use. It does everything I need.

Pros

This is easy to use, and for very small businesses, the free version might be sufficient. So it's very accessible from a price perspective. I pay for the business set up, which is $14 per month, in part because of the email archiving functionality which I need for my particular industry. In addition, because everyone is using google these days for email, files and calendar items are super easy to share with my clients.

Cons

I use Microsoft in my other job, and I do think it's a more robust software, and that Office documents still have a lot of functionality compared to Google docs. That being said, the price of Microsoft Office and Cloud is prohibitive for a business the size of mine.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft 365 and Dropbox Business

Reasons for Switching to Google Cloud Platform

Pricing, universality of the product - client and vendor familiarity with use.

by having 4 types of storage including the multiregional. I can store repeated data and thus guarantee the integrity of my data since when saving it it does so in two regions within the multiregional of data.

Pros

the advantage that google offers to build and organize a large network of services and the best technology in fiber optic cables guarantees efficiency and speed make this service an optimal function of all its cloud services. Being in the cloud you can access the information from anywhere and it does not anchor you to an office.

Cons

Much depends on the provider's policies regarding data preservation. Since when you work with this program, data is modified and created directly in the cloud and without a good internet connection, its use or access would be poor and you have less control over the information.
