"Google Cloud CDN: The Fastest SSL CDN"

What do you like best?

With Google Cloud CDN, our website loading speed was optimized by 200%. Our main page was accessible within the first 3 seconds and it was amazing to see the content load at such a fast speed. We were happy also about the fact that they had more than 90 caching sites around the world, which mean that our visitors would be accessing our site cached from the nearest location to them. I also like the fact that the CDN supports HTTPS, hence adding to the secured communications to our website.

What do you dislike?

I really have no dislike as such up to now. A recommendation could be to offer free dedicated support (phone and email) within the package.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Both financial and branding benefits.

"Not the most popular CDN solution"

What do you like best?

Best thing about is , it is owned and operated by Google. Also they have some popularity because most people use google cdn for using jquery library. Other best thing about google cloud cdn is they are very cheap and best for evaluation. Also documentation is really good. Local community support in Middle East [Esp Dubai] is really good

What do you dislike?

Since most of us host in Amazon AWS or Azure, we dont prefer looking for solution to CDN outside it. Hence no dislike, but no need of using Google Cloud CDN.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Jquery is best with google cdn

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To Load Google Cloud CDN hosted Jquery for all our UI build up

"One of the Fastest CDN available on the market."

What do you like best?

Google is a well known company with many devices using the services provided by google. Many developers, such as me, Will use google's services over others. One of the main reasons for this is because of how good google is with implementing software that is easy to use and is available for everyone. Google CDN will find cache data and use that over having to download the same content for different websites. this increases my website's load times.

What do you dislike?

Like anything else, google is not perfect. Google can be inconsistent, from what I tested. In some tests that I've done in my free time, it will sometimes load the cached data really quick. however, other times it takes a bit of time for the content to be received.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it. No matter how "hard" it seems to implement, it's well worth your time. It can easily be implemented into most sites and will decrease loading times.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Retrieving content using google's method makes everything run smoother and faster, since many domains already use google's CDN as well. Our problem was, how do we make sure all of our websites loaded correctly in the fastest time possible.

What do you like best?

Almost immediately, our website page loading speed was accelerated drastically. I like the fact that the Google CDN reach is really global, with more than 90 sites around the world for caching. But best of all, I absolutely love the fact that our website could be secured to HTTPS (with an SSL certificate) at no additional cost.

What do you dislike?

Support time is quite long as compared to others in the industry.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The pricing is great. I recommend anyone to try. The best of all: there is a 1 year free trial or $300 USD free credit.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to retained potential customers almost immediately with a fast loading website.

"Google Cloud DNS: Dedicated IP For Optimal Performance"

What do you like best?

Unlike other DNS, I really loved the fact that Google Cloud DNS offers a single IP, which fully enhanced the website page loading speed. The free SSL at no additional charge is simply great. This combines performance with security, which greatly pleased us and met our objectives.

What do you dislike?

I do not have a dislike as such because their CDN is amazing. However a more dedicated and faster customer and technical support would be amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend without hesitation. Their CDN is amazing and will greatly make a difference.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We made an increase in visits and engagement on our website, converted into actual bookings.

"Put your content at the edge."

What do you like best?

The Google Cloud CDN provides a complete system for staging content at the closest point to its consumers.The complexities of setting up multiple staging points across the world with multiple providers are eliminated. The content is secure and the rights and access control are enforced both for enabling content delivery and removing content.

What do you dislike?

There really is nothing to dislike in the Google Cloud CDN. It is similar to other CDN's but it has the reach and large worldwide infrastructure of Google.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While it is not the only CDN available, the Google Cloud CDN leverages Google's vast cloud expertise and ability to manage enormous data to achieve a reliability that is unmatched.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to make content available to paying customers. The content is not always ours and we have to abide by the contractual limitations on the content such as when it can be advertised, who can have access, and what time period the content can be made available. In addition we need to reconcile the consumption of the content with our accounting system both to pay royalties to the content providers as well as to charge the customers for the content.

"Super easy to use, comprehensive feature-set, competitive pricing"

What do you like best?

With Google's many data-centers around the world, leveraging the use of their CDN greatly increases the speed of website delivery. They have comprehensive security protocols, SSL included in the platform costs, and super easy integration into the other Google Cloud products via the GCP Console. They also support newer protocols like HTTP/2 and cache invalidation, further decreasing latency for website loading. Lastly, Google has a very high standard for SLA and up-time in general - combining this with their vast amount of locations for data-centers (currently over 90), you're going to get very high-quality CDN service with this product for their very competitive pricing.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really much to dislike here. The pricing is competitive, and if your company already has existing infrastructure that is set up on Google Cloud Platform or any other Google Cloud products, this product is definitely worth using rather than going to competitors like Amazon Web Services, unless you're looking for very specific data-center locations.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Like I mentioned before, if you have any sort of existing products that are hosted on the Google Cloud Platform, adding the CDN service that Google provides is super simple via the Google Cloud Console. If you're looking reduce latency and add normal CDN features to your websites and static files, this service is awesome!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented Google Cloud CDN as an edge service for some of our bucket storage and websites. This greatly increased the loading speed of all of our static websites and files, and greatly helped us off-load some of the high network capacity that we were incurring on our servers.
