Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable features of Google Cloud Storage are flexibility and sustainability."
  • "Google Cloud Storage can improve by having better integration and migration tools."

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of Google Cloud Storage are flexibility and sustainability.

What needs improvement?

Google Cloud Storage can improve by having better integration and migration tools.

There's a concept called parallel runs. Whenever you are migrating from an assets platform to the target platform. To some extent, once you migrate into the Google Cloud Storage platform, none of the customers are ready to decommission their existing platform. In this case, you have to parallelly verify both the assets and migrated systems for them to work. Google Cloud Storage as of now, doesn't have any parallel verification system, while Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure do. Adding this feature would add value and enable them to handle large-scale migration engagement.

Google Cloud Storage needs to have a complete end-to-end solution to be competitive with the other offerings.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Google Cloud Storage for approximately four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Google Cloud Storage is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Most of the clients that are using Google Cloud Storage are small-scale companies. Insurance companies and banks typically use Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

I have found Google Cloud Storage to be scalable but has limits.

How are customer service and support?

We have reached out to Google if there are any changes in the storage or any other issues. As a Google partner, which gives us a different level of support.

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

I previously used Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. 

Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure have an end-to-end solution. Google Cloud Storage, recently entered the market, they don't have their own solutions for migration and transformation, they are depending on any other service providers.

How was the initial setup?

Google Cloud Storage's initial setup is simple.

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

The price of Google Cloud Storage is reasonable when compared to other similar solutions.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Google Cloud Storage a nine out of ten.
