Google Cloud Storage

Google Cloud Storage is highly useful when you need to store data programmatically, from a web or mobile application, and when you need some amount of access control—for instance, such as when you want to sync data across devices. It is less needed for simple file hosting of static web assets, as it may be overly complex for something as simple as hosting static images for a website.

Pros

  • Good storage space for free account
  • Fast uploads
  • Very easy to use

  • Simple! unlike amazon web services which tends to confuse users a lot, the google cloud can be used without spending a lot of time on learning how to use it. The user experience and user interface are some of the most important aspects to attract customers and by making its services easy to use Google seems to be doing pretty well in that area.
  • Trial period. Just want to try out before you make a final decision? Go for it. Google Cloud provides a free trial period without any strings attached.
  • Various options for different types of storage requirements. Pay as you grow your storage space. You can also pay less for storage that is accessed very rarely and so on.
  • Google Cloud Storage provides a sweet edge for developers, providing them with a cloud SDK, tools for Eclipse and other most used SDKs.

Cons

  • So far, none needed
No photo available
  • As we are strongly porting from conventional computer systems to tablet devices and smart phones, I think Google has to try and find ways for providing good access to users of these more modern devices.
  • Even though Google Cloud Storage is easy to use on many levels as we go deeper and deeper into development over the cloud, documentation is an essential factor. Google Cloud has a good amount of documentation but I would love to see a more detailed and expanded library for the documentation which can be used by pro developers.
  • Reduction in support pricing would be a sweet deal for many. It is agreeable that Google provides top-notch services and hence the high pricing, especially for the 15 minute response time but not every business can afford that.

I think Google has an overall positive brand awareness. So there's never been any hesitation from our partners with its usage or with vendors we've had to send stuff to. One of the partners is a very big Google fan, so he's been the driving force behind its selection and usage.

Return on Investment

  • None, but it has been a good reference for associates to download files remotely

  • For our use of this product that would be difficult to measure. Perhaps we can say that it's cost effective compared to other storage solutions.
