My requirements are minimal, but the cost of additional storage could be cheaper.

The purpose of Google Storage is to sell it. The product is subscription-based. When you pay, you will get more storage.

We do have to pay for additional storage, however, we don't mind paying. They do offer limited free storage up until 15GB, however, we are over that. There's a set payment per month.

Licensing fees could be better. We pay a monthly subscription.

The free subscription with Google Cloud Storage provides a lower amount of GB storage, if you want to upgrade to more you have to pay an annual subscription.

If you're ready to pay, they're ready to give you as much storage as you want. Considering the features that Google Cloud Storage provides, the pricing is reasonable. So far, I'm still using the free service from them because I'm able to meet my requirements with the free subscription. Maybe, in the future, if a storage requirement comes, I'll pay for it or go for the license.

For licensing, I pay yearly. The pricing is fine.

The solution is free unless you want to increase the GB data allowance. There is a cost if you want to increase the size of storage space which is expensive.

I pay monthly for Google Cloud Storage. It could be cheaper, but for now, it's okay.

Since Google has recently targeted Vietnam, they've been offering many customers in the country lots of great promotions and incentives. It's about nearly $10,000 USD to use the services on GCP, however, Google gave us a good deal which is why we originally went with them. We do pay a monthly fee to Google. We use a lot of their services.

The solution is free to use and comes with one terabyte of free memory. If you need more than that, you may have to pay.

The price is fair. Even when you compare it to the competition, I'd say the value we get for every dollar we spend is very good. They have different costs and options for scalability and functionality. We started off with the free edition and then we went for the corporate edition and the business edition, and we've since increased. They have lots of options for various types of users.

When making the decision the customer is not driven by the price. They are interested in using a well-known and reliable service provider. Our customers don't know the technology, so, we do that for them. They know that the pricing is comparable with Azure, AWS, and those other solutions like Amazon are cheaper, but they are not as flexible.
