With Google Cloud Platform, users can store large amounts of data in cloud storage and scalable data warehouses with built-in machine learning. Additionally, users have access to relational and non-relational databases for transactions, complex queries, streaming, offline sync, and more. The platform also includes data migration services such as data import for BigQuery, large scale network transfer of data, and a rackable storage server for large volumes of data.

Google Cloud Platform enables users to streamline management workflows with integrated management consoles, browser and mobile device compatibility, and cost optimization tools. The platform also includes a global fiber network, providing users with defense-in-depth network security and reliability. Additional networking features include content delivery, service tiers, telemetry, low-latency DNS serving, traffic management, load balancing, and a network intelligence center for network monitoring, verification, and optimization.

With Google Cloud Platform users can integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) into pre-existing applications using custom or pre-trained modules, as well as gather insights derived from text, speech, video, and images. The platform offers natural language features for cloud translation from any language.

It was a great experience in the world of cloud services and thank you Google for making a platform so powerful and simple .

Pros

The user interface is friendly without complications, the availability of support, and his eagerness to solve the problem and clarify matters .
Giving you $300 when you register for the first time with a Credit or Debit Card to enjoy an experience on the platform, and I think $300 is a very enough amount and there is no platform that does that .

Cons

The problem I faced was because the documentation is not updated and depends on an old interface and terminology, so I resorted to support to help me 0

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure

Reasons for Choosing Google Cloud Platform

Because there are features in Microsoft that fit the work environment we are working on and because Azure provides full and free training on how to deal with the platform .

Switched From

Microsoft Azure

From our experience it's OK for quick projects, quicker than amazon aws. For long term software stability or precise capabilities we'd go to Azure anytime.

Pros

Very powerful, straightforward, it sports a lot of the tools you probably want

Cons

Less comprehensive and enterprise oriented than Azure, less legacy compatibility, unclear and swift platform changes.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure and AWS CloudFormation

We didn't choose it, our customers already had code in it.

Google Cloud Platform is getting better and better

I am a huge fan of Google Cloud Platform. I have been using their services for years now, and I am amazed at how easy it is to get started. They have great tutorials that walk you through the process, and they also have an excellent support team. They are always available to answer questions, and they are great at making sure you don't get stuck.While GCP was behind AWS for quite a while, Google has done a good job of making their system more approachable through good tutorial videos.

Pros

GCP is a powerhouse platform with a lot of flexibility and strengths. Now that they've optimized the platform to make it more understandable for non-engineers, we're using it more often since it is easy to spin up whatever you need.

Cons

While GCP was behind AWS for quite a while, Google had a slow start to be an approachable platform for the less tech-savvy. Even now, there are more options and switches than sometimes seem appropriate.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure and MongoDB

Reasons for Choosing Google Cloud Platform

Google offered us credits and we ran out of AWS credits.

Reasons for Switching to Google Cloud Platform

Free credits from Google, but the platform is really good now.
