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.

Cons

  • So far, none needed

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

ADrive has been very easy to use, and it's fast

Dropbox is best for media files (videos, pictures) as it seems more structured for that capability. OneDrive is okay, but is tougher to navigate versus Google Cloud Storage. I also prefer the other products in the Google suite versus the Microsoft suite, so I would always pick Google Storage for that reason if I had the choice

Return on Investment

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

  • 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.
