Google Cloud Storage

Google Cloud Storage is ideal when you need to export large data samples from Big Query. It is also fairly good when managing a lot of users in a corporate environment. While there are other storage options available, Cloud Storage gives you enough options and flexibility to control and manage your large file sets quickly and efficiently. It is also a viable option for federated accounts. It is not the best when you need a lot of flexibility or features. Folders can't be deleted for instance, and managing or organizing folders is not its best feature. It's more a solution for simple exports and handling of larger BQ data sets.

Google Cloud Storage

  • Really great, easy to use interface helps us manage files easily. Storage is fast and inexpensive, so we don't have to spin up storage instances locally
  • Great set of command-line tools to manage data and storage options via scripts and apps, as well as an SDK means we can build GCS into our orchestration and operations tools
  • Robust integration with other Google cloud tools means that we don't have to think too hard about using GCS for a variety of storage tasks as we interact with other Google services.

Cons

ADrive

  • So far, none needed

Google Cloud Storage

  • Although it's pretty easy to navigate, maybe changing the layout/display just slightly would be helpful. Especially for new users who really need to improve overall organization.
  • Offering a better tutorial for new users/groups would be helpful. I never got a tutorial when I first started using it and it took awhile to figure out how to navigate.
  • Not sure what the overall cost looks like for our company, but any discounts offered for companies that also use google products at the enterprise level (like Digital First Media/Adtaxi) would be nice.

If you are using this type of platform for the first time, you may find it very difficult. It is not as easy to use as Amazon in the beginning, but when you get used to it, everything is fine.

For performance i give Google Cloud Storage 10 of 10 on performance because even though there are other softwares that do exactly the same thing as Google Drive, it still works exceptionally well. It is very fast, and and far as integration, the only software I have used with it that integrated was Google Docs, and of course it integrates perfectly.

Google Cloud Storage

Compared to the Amazon version of cloud services, Google's UI/UX is much easier to get used to. Even though Amazon's services are really good and more wide in range compared to that of Google's. I would prefer Google over Amazon due to the responsiveness of the customer support from Google and their ease of use. I also feel that the payment policy of Google is less mistake prone compared to Amazon.

Google Cloud Storage

  • As my usage was mostly for an educational purpose, I cannot really comment on the ROI. But, google cloud storage has definitely served my purpose for choosing it as a place to store data collectively for the team.
  • One of non-financial ROI that I can think of is that I now have a much better understanding on how cloud systems work due the time I spent on using google cloud storage.
  • A lot of the world's best companies are using google cloud storage to deploy their applications so I do believe that there is quite a good positive impact on their ROI.
