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

Google Cloud Storage

  • Not a good solution for storing structured information. There are better products for that.
  • Buckets organization and management can fall short if you have too many buckets. It would be nice to be able to group or tag buckets for better visibility/grouping.

Never needed to use support for this product. Is so simple and well designed that you can start using it right from the documentation. We've never encountered a problem that wasn't solved after reading some docs. In general terms, Google Cloud support is usually good, but again, we don't use it much, documentation and community contributions are abundant and useful.

Alternatives Considered

Google Cloud Storage

Guru and Google Cloud Storage are different in many ways. They are by no means the same product, but our team has begun to move away from Google for our documentation of processes. Guru has a superior system for organizing documents and articles.

Return on Investment

Google Cloud Storage

  • Having Google Cloud Storage allows us to have multiple offices across the country. We can still collaborate thousands of miles away.
  • It's a game changer for the distribution of knowledge across teams. Knowledge flies very fast and this has helped us do our best to keep up.
  • I can't imagine doing my job without it. It would be a lot of extra emails, and more time spent uploading documents.
