      We use Google Compute Engine in a hybrid and multi-cloud solution. We find that using it for direct ad-hoc use cases meets all of our demands. We have attempted some more complex networking and multi-regional use cases but were not able to achieve satisfactory results. Google Compute Engine is extremely appropriate for anyone requiring quick, scalable, reliable infrastructure.

      Pros

      Google

      • A simple web-based interface that is a breeze to train new engineers to use. Our experienced engineers never have trouble finding or doing anything on GCE.
      • Sustained use and Committed use discounts mean we get top-tier VMs for an incredibly competitive price.
      • Wonderful identity and access management that gives us peace-of-mind when granting access to machines to contractors and other 3rd parties.
      • Fast VMs, lastest in hardware, and enough RAM to power even the hungriest of our services.

      Cons

      Google

      • The L7 load balancer can be difficult to get set up. It's limited in its functionality, especially with the container engine.
      • It's hard to find certain objects on the web console. Often times the things I need to get to are buried in advanced menus.
      • Google's decision to only support MySQL on their relational DB service means that I have to manage Postgres instances in Compute on my own, managing everything from storage to backups.

        Usability

        Google

        Having interacted with several cloud services, GCE stands out to me as more usable than most. The naming and locating of features is a little more intuitive than most I've interacted with, and hinting is also quite helpful. Getting staff up to speed has proven to be overall less painful than others.

        Google

        • The documentation needs to be better for intermediate users - There are first steps that one can easily follow, but after that, the documentation is often spotty or not in a form where one can follow the steps and accomplish the task. Also, the documentation and the product often go out of sync, where the commands from the documentation do not work with the current version of the product.
        • Google support was great and their presence on site was very helpful in dealing with various issues.

        Alternatives Considered

        Google

        I've used the AWS stack, the Azure stack, OCI, and IBM cloud. I have found GCP and AWS the easiest to deploy, configure, manage, and so on. Google has offered me at least 5 free in person classes to train me in new features on the platform. Likewise AWS has offered me probably 10 to 15 guided online tutorials, with a person to field any questions. All of this free training will no doubt affect my experience in a serious way, so keep that in mind as a reader. Outside of ease of use and configuration, I haven't experienced performance problems across any of the cloud services that I have used.

        Return on Investment

        Google

        • Positive impact on the OpEx with reduction in CapEx resulting from reducing the time to move a workload from on-prem to the cloud
        • Incased RoI by reducing need for on-prem compute
        • Improved agility by providing the option to take on new AI workloads for test and dev without the need for upfront investment in
