Overall Satisfaction with Google Cloud IoT

The last years of work have been dedicated to the design of electronic equipment related to the IoT, I have analyzed and experimented with different platforms, Google Cloud IoT being one of the ones that have best impressed me. Although later I have chosen to design a personalized platform that uses parts from different providers including Google, to date I consider that I will use it again in new projects.
  • Integration with different brands of microcontrollers including the one currently used by Espresiff.
  • The platform is very robust and secure.
  • It would be convenient to be able to calculate operating costs simply and in advance.
  • At the moment the interface offers too many options that could be a problem for an inexperienced user.
  • Scalability, no matter how many subscribers Google Cloud IoT has, it adapts its processing automatically.
  • Informatic security.
  • The best current technology.
  • The use of Google Cloud IoT services is essentially charged according to the data transmission carried out, it is important to consider the volume of data to be used previously.
  • Despite the expense that cloud services may have, it is also true that a lot of personnel is saved, who should be available at all hours to ensure that the servers are active.
Although comparisons are hateful, even more so when we are talking about leading brands where the quality of their services are indisputable, the general environment of Google was more familiar to me since I use, for example, Google Firebase on a daily basis, where part of the concepts are similar, without Without a doubt, AWS services are excellent, but it was easier for me to go through the functions of Google Cloud IoT.

Do you think Google Cloud IoT delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Google Cloud IoT's feature set?


Did Google Cloud IoT live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Google Cloud IoT go as expected?


Would you buy Google Cloud IoT again?


If your IoT project is in the prototype or experimental phase, there are options that are simpler to implement than Google Cloud IoT, perhaps using your own servers and not hosted on Google's cloud. However, if you are developing a solution that has the projection of becoming a product without a doubt, you should use a cloud platform like Google Cloud IoT for many reasons such as scalability, security and service availability among others.
