Overall Satisfaction with Google Cloud Storage

We use this service for Cloud Storage (obviously). We use two cloud storage services, in case one of these fails or goes down for any reason. This service is used by the IT area mainly. We started using Google Cloud Storage as a trial and kept using it for a couple of months just for testing, but the pricing was better than the competition, that's why we finally decided to use both.
  • The pricing is much better than the competition.
  • It has Google's support.
  • They have many other services that you can put together (for an additional cost), which can make your life easier.
  • Implementation was easy.
  • Sometimes it can be more difficult to manage than their competitors.
  • It's cheaper than Amazon.
  • I can not tell you for sure if it's more reliable than Amazon, but Google Cloud Service is a good option.
  • Having it as a second Cloud Service has worked very well.
If your budget is limited, or if you are just starting your business and you're looking for a cloud storage service, this is a good option which is reliable and cheap.
I have also tried Amazon S3, and Google Cloud Storage is better. Google Cloud Storage is as reliable as Amazon, which also integrates well with other services and systems. In general, I haven't had any problems with this platform.
If you are using this type of platform for the first time, you may find it very difficult. It is not as easy to use as Amazon in the beginning, but when you get used to it, everything is fine.
It is well suited for:
  • A large amount of data storage.
  • If you want a secure platform.
  • If you want reliable encryption of data.
If you don't have the money to pay directly to the largest supplier of U.S. cloud storage, there are other options available.
