Overall Satisfaction with Google Cloud DNS

Our team consist of post graduate students who work on joint projects with Government and private funders. We use Google Cloud on a daily basis. It is the store house for all our information. Our team is spread across a few cities but with Google cloud, access to any document is seamless. We are not restricted by having physical information confined to a physical office space. We have onboarded new members and simply provided them with access to the appropriate folders. The ability to control access to specific folders is a key benefit of Google Cloud, for security and privacy issues regarding sensitive information.

Pros

  • Privacy Control
  • Collaboration
  • Ease of access to information
  • Organisation
  • Communication about access and changes to folders

Cons

  • Easier management of access
  • Ease of use
  • Transparency of folders and shared files(that one has access to)
  • Sharing ability
  • Ease of downloading finished products
  • Trusting amongst team
  • Ability to work remotely
  • Increased efficiency
  • Freedom to upload all information(no storage limit)
Google Cloud is the easiest to use sharing platform available. Other platforms are not as accessible as accessing the Google drive when you are logged in with your Google account. Trello has a limited sharing capacity which I have not experienced with Google Drive. Our institution has afforded us unlimited space on the Google Cloud platform which was more of a struggle to obtain on Dropbox. Teams would select and use Dropbox voluntarily and have to arrange payments and claims. I also find that Dropbox sends a multitude of emails regarding storage and upgrades while Google Cloud is generally silent but highly effective as a storage tool.

Yes

Would you buy Google Cloud DNS again?

Yes

Google cloud is well suited to access and collaborate on documents where more than 2 people are required to contribute and in instances where feedback from individuals is captured on the document itself. If a team is working on an end of year report for funders, a few key members may need to finalise a report by offering suggestions that can be viewed and resolved by other team members. Housing documents on Google Cloud is the most appropriate platform I have ever used for tasks like these.

If minimal collaboration needs engagement from just 2 individuals, it may be easier to simply email the information between each other, rather than using time to create a folder, ensure access control and upload the information to Google Cloud for collaborative input.
