Things are pretty clear.""The most useful feature of Google Cloud is that it's basically completely managed or fully managed. There is no administration or maintenance needed from the user, and it's very simple to use.""It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage."

Cons
"I would improve the integration with other devices such as smartphones. It is integrated in our company, but I think it could be improved.""Google Cloud could improve the integration with other solutions.""I consider Azure more secure than Google and Amazon because of all its certifications, but Google is secure enough and improving.""The solution could be cheaper.""If there were more documentation and training, it would be very helpful in explaining the underlying processes.""Could provide more services.""Another issue is the applicability of local language data capturing mechanisms, which are more advanced on cloud service providers, but still there is room to grow. Also, their hybrid version isn't available in all markets worldwide, so I'm hoping that it will be released globally soon""Uploading documents could be simplified."

"Tanzu could provide more granular control over whatever networking is being done on the containers. I would also like to see a slightly more detailed view of application-level tracing. I'm referring to the connections between different microservices. If they added a service-matching feature, that would be helpful for the customers to build or be more effective.""The implementation is not easy, it is very complex and can take a day or two to complete."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors."
  • "The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use."
  • "It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model."
  • "I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite"
  • "It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage."
  • "Pricing is high compared to other solutions."
  • "Licensing fees are paid monthly."
  • "Google Cloud should be divided into modules so that users can buy which module will satisfy them. The overall price of Google Cloud should be reduced, Microsoft is a little bit cheaper. However, if Google divided the cloud offering it would be better. For example, if someone wants to use only for OneDrive they should be able to purchase the service separately, it would reduce the price. There is a license required to use this solution for enterprises. There is a free account, which the users can increase the size of the space. Google cloud is used in most Android Mobile device operating systems."
