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.
  • It solves our NoSQL database problem.
  • It it highly scalable and available to meets our needs.
We selected Google Cloud Datastore as one of our candidates for our NoSQL data is because it is provided by Google Cloud, which fits our needs. Most of our infrastructure is on Google Cloud, so when we think about the NoSQL database, the first thing we thought about is Google Cloud Datastore. And it proves itself.
I give Google Cloud a full score because it satisfies our needs so well. We host most of our infrastructure on Google Cloud and using Google Cloud Datastore helps us to solve our NoSQL storage problem. and Google Cloud Datastore is so scalable and elastic. It saves us lots of time to maintain and saves us money.

We're using Google Cloud Datastore as part of an application deployed to Google AppEngine, which is all running entirely in the Google Cloud Platform. Since our application is using Google AppEngine, we wanted to use a datastore which was simple to set up and didn't require managing servers or deployments/configurations for. Because Google Cloud Datastore is part of the Google Cloud Platform, it really simplified billing and management.
  • Automatically handles shards and replication.
  • Schema-less & NoSQL.
  • Fully managed.
  • Part of the Google Cloud Platform walled garden.
  • Pay for read/writes to the datastore, in addition to storage.
  • Not many libraries exist.

Using Google Cloud Datastore in conjunction with Google AppEngine was a very seamless integration and much easier than using other datastores since so much of the configuration is abstracted for you. Because of this, creating simple applications is very easy and getting Google Cloud Datastore to power the backend ties everything together. If we were using Google Compute Engine, I'd imagine the same seamless experience would be there as well.
  • Simple billing part of Google Cloud Platform
  • No time spent configuring and maintaining Google Cloud Datastore.
  • Very good uptime for our applications.
If deploying an application in Google Cloud Platform, using Google Cloud Datastore is a no brainer because of the simplicity of setup. Other options would require more setup and configuration, and do not come with the same level of guaranteed uptime as Google Cloud Datastore. In our case, we've been using Google Cloud Datastore for 4 years without any issues and have never had to think about it.
For the amount of use we're getting from Google Cloud Datastore, switching to any other platform would have more cost with little gain. Not having to manage and maintain Google Cloud Datastore for over 4 years has allowed our teams to work on other things. The price is so low that almost any other option for our needs would be far more expensive in time and money.
