Google Cloud Datastore is being used by some departments in our company for testing and proof of concept purpose. We were looking for a product in Google Cloud to be used as our NoSQL database. Google Cloud Datastore came into our sight with its high availability and serverless nature which makes it a perfect candidate for our needs.
- It is hosted in GCP, our primary cloud provider.
- It integrates with all the services we use in GCP.
- It is hosted on GCP, which makes it harder if your company have multi-cloud strategy.
- When you want to migrate to other cloud providers, there can be a caveat.
If you want a serverless NoSQL database, no matter it is for personal use, or for company use, Google Cloud Datastore should be on top of your list, especially if you are using Google Cloud as your primary cloud platform. It integrates with all services in the Google Cloud platform.
