When you push your networking, storage, and other infrastructure from on-premise to the cloud, you can let go of your on-premise real estate and shift the burden back onto the cloud vendor. Google absorbs the cost of power, cooling, management, etc. You no longer need to spend on CapEx. Instead, you are spending on consumption, so your CapEx moves into OPEX and then on the utility. That's the generic use case for why somebody would move their workload to the cloud.

We use Google Cloud for storage, infrastructure, and services. It provides file storage and infrastructure for deploying virtual machines, Kubernetes, or Dockers. We also use it for Google services that can be accessed by other software. Our company currently has about 60 users, and we plan to increase usage in the future.

Google Cloud can be used to share files with no need to carry them with you since it is on the cloud. You can access it anywhere if you are traveling or if you have important documents.

We build solutions based on the Google platform. We don't create solutions for ourselves. We create them for our customers. We are using it specifically for our machine learning and data analytics. We are building our data solutions by using Google Cloud services. We are building the analytics dashboards and coming out with predictive analytics for education.

Hi community members, I'm the Head of IT at a construction company (size: <50). Currently, I'm trying to select an IaaS platform out of Google Cloud services, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. Many have suggested that Amazon AWS is a good choice.  Which one would you recommend for my organization? Whichever you recommend please give your reasons. Thanks in advance.

I have worked with AWS for 4 years now and I agree with the recommendation.  If you make some research AWS will be shown as the top solution in many white papers. We made an evaluation to compare it with Google and Azure. In our case, AWS is the most cost-effective. Depending on the solution you are running you need to check the license cost for your servers. If you have a lot of Windows solutions Azure may be a better fit.   Regarding performance, we did have an incident where the complete region was unreachable. So, make sure to consider recovery sites.

I would like to recommend MS Azure to start with.  The reasons are: 1. I bet you're using many Microsoft tools, like Office 365, Team, etc. so you're pretty familiar with the MS UX which is excellent. 2. It's easy to start/learn Azure and configurations, they have very detailed documentation online. 3. It's relatively cheaper with Azure IaaS with good starting numbers of notes/services.

When creating a private cloud, you can choose from several different technologies - some of them are open source (like OpenStack, Open Nebula), others are private (like VMware vCloudSuite, Microsoft Azure).  Do you have experience with any of them and what is your feedback?

I am experienced with OpenStack, AWS, and Azure. We had our private cloud on OpenStack during my Ph.D. studies on Cloud resources management and I use AWS (as a public Cloud) for my last 2 research papers. I also used Azure for couples of projects. But we had to switch because we were experiencing some downtime with Azure that was degrading the performance of the applications. I hope I answered your question!
