Overall Satisfaction with Google Cloud Storage

We used to have file servers storing our customer's cases, forms, and documents. Accessing these documents remotely was not simple nor easy for members without extensive training and specific hardware. We replaced our main file server for personal data and legal documents for Google Cloud Storage—this gave us easy access to those files from any device, anywhere.
  • Easy to use and access files with little to no permission problems. That was one of our major concerns when using a similar solution in the past.
  • Access data remotely without the need for complicated software or specific hardware.
  • Is fast, reliable and useful. Updates files faster than other platforms. You can integrate it with other Google services.
  • Security: Access control works way better than similar products.
  • The way to change a file's policies is a little bit tricky, but probably that's something that we felt because of the way we used to perform this task.
  • Little to no documentation and not enough tutorials for beginner users.
  • Overall cost and benefits are far superior to the previous service we used to have and the accessibility in comparison with the traditional file server is superb.
Easier to set up and has a natural interface that is well known to users so it is easy for them to assimilate. Google Cloud Storage is faster than any other option we tried and works perfectly with our Chromebooks. From an ROI perspective, it is the best option for a medium sized company like ours.
Since we started using it we have never had access problems and have never needed to call tech support. Our information is safe and accessible by every member of our organization from any device. No complex training needed. The user experience is very natural and any Google Suite user works faster in this system than they have with other products we used in the past. The price is affordable in comparison to competitors.
In an organization like ours, where most users are highly trained professionals with little to no computer knowledge or experience we needed to find a solution that succeeds in protecting and making our information available any time anywhere with little to no training. Google did a great job creating and making a very intuitive interface available.
For our mid-sized law practice, with multiple locations, and data access needs this was the best available solution. Giving us full integration to our G Suite (email, calendar, tools), plus price-per-functionality made it unbeatable as it is the most complete solution for the price. Moving from traditional storage to the cloud was, at first, a traumatic experience, but when we switched to Google Cloud Storage our point of view regarding Cloud Storage changed forever! Easy, secure and reliable access to our stored data from anywhere changed the way our small firm works. We certainly recommend this solution to any company that needs a solid storage solution.
