One of the top 3 clouds that is easy to use and has excellent capacity
Pros and Cons
  • "The capacity and space on offer are excellent."
  • "They need a better, more visual, user interface for folders and files."

What is our primary use case?

We have automation for extracting information and putting that information in files in buckets for other integrations with other apartments of my company we use this solution for storage and integration.

What is most valuable?

The capacity and space on offer are excellent.

It's easy to use. All services in the cloud are easy to use as you have a service account. You can manage the security very well, however, that is the same in all cloud network services.

The cloud setup is easy for experienced individuals.

The solution is stable and reliable. 

What needs improvement?

They need a better, more visual, user interface for folders and files. Right now, you can see a list of five. You need to see some details, more folders, and be able to drag and drop the folders. That would be useful.

Those new to GoogleCloud may struggle a bit with the setup.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for two or maybe even three years.

633,952 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is excellent.

I can't think of a better service that's provided in South America. The infrastructure overall is very stable and reliable. It's one of the top three clouds for sure.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution scales very, very well. There's as much space, as much capacity, as we need.

There are about 200 users right now. I work in a corporate technology center and we know a lot of IT people that work in storage, although not so much in the cloud. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I'm also aware of Amazon and Microsoft and they all have the better infrastructure in terms of data centers in the world. They are all stable and all offer good uptime. 

How was the initial setup?

The original setup is easy. I create buckets, however, I did not set up the first bucket in the company. That said, it's easy to use. In general, if you have knowledge about IT services or previously worked in a cloud, the implementation is not difficult. That said, if you are new in IT and new to the cloud, it is more difficult as you need to make relations in your mind between different services. It's best to have experienced people on it while you are setting it up.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure about the licensing arrangement. We may pay yearly, however, we may also have negotiated pricing over more of a long term. We do plan to use the product for the long term.

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate the solution ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Nearline security could be better. The solution could integrate better with SEIM tools. We need to improve anything related to security, whether we're talking about IT, the technology platform on the Cloud, etc.

We've started using Google Nearline in 2018.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Nearline is highly stable.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Nearline nine out of 10.
