    If a small business is looking for Object Storage, they should consider Cloudflare's R2 storage with which there are practically zero fees associated. Other cloud object storage services like AWS S3 can add up costs pretty fast as the egress fees are high. Apart from this, Cloudflare is still the best DNS resolver hands down. Its DDoS attack protection is at par with the best services out there. Being one of the most popular CDN right now, they also have a big network of servers strategically placed around the world. However, I do believe there are better, more premium services out there that offer more bespoke solutions for bigger enterprises and Cloudflare might not be the best solution for their needs.

    One of the most important aspects while working with data warehousing solutions and analytics is the ability to handle large datasets. Google BigQuery is the best in business for that particular aspect. It is ridiculously fast while handling large data sets. Another aspect where it is well suited is the ability to integrate it with data visualization tools like Data Studio. It is fast, easy to use, and very reliable. The only aspect where I feel it is less appropriate where you have to pay more of inefficient scripts and that can hamper the growth of the company a bit.

    Pros

    Cloudflare

    • When you need a FREE and EASY TO SETUP SSL certificate on your page (if you don't have the locked locker icon when opening your page, you need it)
    • When you want to obfuscate your webpage's IP (any connection will give the Cloudflare's IP)
    • You need to speed up the connection for static content (it will not help database connections or dynamic content)
    • IF your DNS isn't good (Cloudflare's DNS is amazing, quick, easy, and works pretty well)

    • BigQuery is ridiculously fast and has the ability to query absurdly large data sets to return results immediately.
    • BigQuery allows for storage of a massive amount of data for relatively low prices.
    • Easy to learn. BiqQuery uses SQL-like queries and is easy to transfer your existing skills to use.

    Cons

    Cloudflare

    • Some features require a bit of hand holding to deploy correctly. While the documentation is good, it could provide more examples to cover additional use cases.
    • Telephone support for enterprise customers is for emergencies only, but sometimes phone conversations are better for providing clarity.
    • Enterprise lite customers can't purchase all options available to total enterprise customers. Still, many of those additional features cost additional, so upgrading to the full enterprise means an increase in base plus the additional feature (bot management is a great example). Enterprise lite customers should be able to add these services on as well but without an increase in base.
    • It's difficult to add new services to enterprise plans. It would be ideal if customers could purchase/upgrade online and sign an order insertion digitally from the site instead of having to go through customer success.

    • One issue with Google Cloud Storage is its price. For one to have that premium Google Cloud Storage, for the purpose of massive storage, he/she must have adequate cash. Otherwise, Google Cloud Storage is a safe and perfect online storage platform.
    • The only thing that can come to mind that would be annoying with this software was that sometimes when trying to share files on the Cloud with coworkers, it would just not share at all, or there would be a massive delay in when I shared them and when they received them. Other than that though, everything is perfect with this.

    Usability

    Cloudflare

    While there are some parts of the service that can be tricky to implement if you have a very custom site, like holepunching for cache, for the most part, the service works very well out of the box and is easy to use

    Support Rating

    Cloudflare

    Support is responsive and available. One factor which probably should be addressed for enterprise customers – sometimes, some of the engineers take more time to comprehend the exact nature of the issue. A few of the issues which require a deep understanding of the Cloudflare stack and of the internet, in general, don't get fast resolution.

    I rated the overall support for Google BigQuery as a mediocre five because it has limited support from Google. Instead, it is heavily dependent on an organization's IT resources such as SQL analysts and Data Architects to run big data reports or maintain data quality. Additionally, if errors occur during a run of complex SQL queries or when sending data to Google BigQuery from other sources, Google provides basic email support which needs to be complemented with internal data warehouse support to fix the root cause of the database errors. Finally, due to constraints on the amount of data an analyst can query or pay the additional cost when exceeding the limit, basic Google support is not sufficient to meet data needs without interruption.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cloudflare

    I've used Cloudflare almost since the beginning, 8+ years. I don't have any experience with other platforms as Cloudflare is simple, easy, and cost-effective. Cloudflare offers tremendous value in its free plan. The vast majority of our clients are on the free plan but for some larger clients who require more advanced features, Cloudflare is still extremely affordable for the feature sets it delivers in its advanced offerings.

    Spinning up, provisioning, maintaining and debugging a Hadoop solution can be non-trivial, painful. I'm talking about both GCE based or HDInsight clusters. It requires expertise (+ employee hire, costs). With BigQuery if someone has a good SQL knowledge (and maybe a little programming), can already start to test and develop. All of the infrastructure and platform services are taken care of. Google BigQuery is a magnitudes simpler to use than Hadoop, but you have to evaluate the costs. BigQuery billing is dependent on your data size and how much data your query touches.

    Return on Investment

    Cloudflare

    • Uptime: With Cloudflare's website protection, we have avoided panic-inducing outages and downtime.
    • Reduced hosting load: Cloudflare's CDN allows us to use smaller servers and greatly diminish bandwidth usage.
    • Reduced domain renewal cost: Most of our domains could be transferred to Cloudflare, where domain renewals are as cheap as possible.
    • Increased total website cost: All of Cloudflare's features aren't free, and they increase our monthly overall website cost. The protection and other features are helpful, just not free.

    • Google BigQuery has had enormous impact in terms of ROI to our business, as it has allowed us to ease our dependence on our physical servers, which we pay for monthly from another hosting service. We have been able to run multiple enterprise scale data processing applications with almost no investment
    • Since our business is highly client focused, Google Cloud Platform, and BigQuery specifically, has allowed us to get very granular in how our usage should be attributed to different projects, clients, and teams.
    • Plain and simple, I believe the meager investments that we have made in Google BigQuery have paid themselves back hundreds of times over.
