"The best place to deploy you app for better processing"

What do you like best?

The google brand is reliable for better stability for the deployment of your apps . The apps which require heavy computation power runs easily . you can build and scale faster with Google Cloud’s planet-scale computing on one of the world’s largest and fastest private networks so google is reliable and confidential ,

The dataabstraction is very efficient in this. It runs on same infrastructure that google uses for its end users.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dislike is the linux console is very tedious to understand and a bit laggy .

The git included in the Cloud is also complex.

But when learned can be used to create wonders.

you cannot modify the os .. rest all is fine

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recomment this to every professional who need heavy computation power and alway uptime of services.

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

I am using analytics and the computational power apps .

Its a userful service when you dont wanna use your own hardware to deploy the app .

i have never suffered any downtime ,

so its the best available option for me.

i wanted an AI tool , but my hardware was not that good to compute that , so i used Googel cloud to process it online , it definitely the best solution for online services

"Google Cloud is a must-have for modern businesses"

What do you like best?

The ease of access that I enjoy as a user of Google Cloud is why I choose to keep on coming back to this service. Maintenance shut outs have never happened to me, and the digital security Google has in place for moving my code in and out of the cloud is the best in the world.

The way that Google Cloud integrates with other Google products is a major plus. I can store backups with ease in my Drive folder. I can quickly discuss what I am working on with a client over Hangouts, and I like to run real time testing with a video chat window open.

Also, the price points are amazing. So many options for free use exist if you are new to the use of cloud services. Once you decide to scale up, the cost will be very reasonable.

What do you dislike?

Some of the help guides are very intensive. There is a learning curve if you are new to coding and the use of the cloud. It helped me a lot to work with an actual person, a specialist that lives near me and was able to walk me through the use of certain features (mostly the third party API functions) that I was afraid of using the wrong way and causing issues with my clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The free access point is great for trying it out, so commit a few hours to trying it out.

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

I needed to address how I implement code in a way that would be affordable, reliable and practical. Google Cloud met all of these needs, so I am very satisfied with the service.

"Great Free Review Period, User Interface "

What do you like best?

I am in the free 30-day review period for Microsoft Cloud Function and it's great to be able to try out the program for free.

So far functionality is great. I'm connecting some APIs to my Wordpress page and it's very user-friendly for a mid-level techie like myself. I use Google suite for just about everything so there's a lot of potential here. I may try my hand at creating some apps now that I have this tool available.

What do you dislike?

There's a lot here and it's going to take some time to get a grip on all of it. A built-in tutorial would be nice. I have not tried the help section yet. There are some things here that I've never seen before.

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

I anticipate being able to integrate data from all of my Google suite programs with features of my webpage and hopefully with Analytics as well.

"Amazing cloud service at cheapest price"

What do you like best?

Its very secure to save the files to the google cloud or u can say drive.The way that Google Cloud integrates with other Google products is a major plus. I can store backups with ease in my Drive folder.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at all till now and i know google is always there for troubleshooting and It helped me a lot to work with an actual person, a specialist that lives near me and was able to walk me through the use of certain features (mostly the third party API functions) that I was afraid of using the wrong way and causing issues with my clients.

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

Safety of documents and important data to the google cloud.

Its a userful service when you dont wanna use your own hardware to deploy the app .

i have never suffered any downtime ,

so its the best available option for me.

"Google Cloud is Amazing!"

What do you like best?

We use this in our everyday jobs in order to share documents and work on multiple things at the same time. This has made it so easy to collaborate on documents, with real time editing/comments and able to share our work. I find this platform very secure in terms that the privacy settings make it easy to restrict others from seeing anything, and you have to be added to be a part of the cloud. Without this software, it would be really hard for us to collaborate the way we do.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how hard it is to find items in the cloud. You have to do multiple clicking through folders to find items. I wish there was an easier search option in order to find what I am looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very beneficial for collaboration.

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

Collaborating, real-time editing/document updates

"Potential, but has a ways to go."

What do you like best?

Good, simple integration with other GCP services and Google's DialogFlow voice platform.

What do you dislike?

Extremely poor cold start times on idle functions that made the service unusable for a DialogFlow-based voice platform production environment. DialogFlow itself mandates a 5 second timeout when calling a backend function and the cold start times on these Google Cloud Functions is often more than 5 seconds, meaning that Google DialogFlow will throw errors trying to call its own preferred and integrated FaaS solution.

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

Launching a voice-based user interface with DialogFlow.

"Living in the clouds"

What do you like best?

Moving to serverless was one of the best decisions that we've ever made. Because of this we've made accessing our files so much easier.

What do you dislike?

The areas I dislike is some of the UI needs to be updated, as well as it being a bit slower than the previous servers we had.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I believe that Google Cloud Functions works hard to ensure we have access to our files from anywhere. This solution is only slightly slower than in house servers at less cost and less space. It also helps us access the files from out of our office at a much higher data rate.

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

We are solving the ability to access our files in different locations with Google Cloud.

"The Best Multi-Purpose Cloud Storage"

What do you like best?

I love how every one of my documents is accessible cross-platforms and when I’m prepared to download a document from Google, it can be done in a number of popular file formats in a friendly manner.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally, when switching between Microsoft tools and google drive products, the files are adjusted improperly and formatting is lost. That’s very painful to the time crunch many teams face.

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

One is saving space on our work computers which is so precious, but the other is being able to access the same files for a number of users and edit those files simultaneously. It’s a great platform to work across.

"Simple, Elegant, Powerful - Not mature enough yet"

What do you like best?

Cloud functions are easy to use, deploy, and are written in NodeJS.

What do you dislike?

There is nowhere to put sensitive data! In AWS lambda, you can set configuration variables, but Cloud Functions have no equivalent unless you are using Firebase. This renders them useless in many scenarios.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be aware that there is no easy way to add environment information of sensitive config data.

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

This applies more the the world of serverless computing at large. Cloud functions are cheap, easy, and extensible. There are also a wide range of use-cases where cloud functions are a perfect fit. They cost a fraction of running a VM, and come without the hassle.

"Cloud Services!"

What do you like best?

I Love the great way that the service allows me to save things in a cloud instead of a memory card or hard drive.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how I have to navigate so much to get to the file I desire.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please allow less navigation tabs to make it a more easier use. I would love for the feature to be a mobile app as well if not already.

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

Storage for all of our employees's personal work related files.

What do you like best?

Me gusta que esta integrado dentro de la suite de Google así que puedes abrir documentos, enviarlos por correo o tomar notas. Es fácil de subir archivos así como utilizar la sincronización.

What do you dislike?

Tal vez que la seguridad se puede ver comprometida si no se activa manualmente la seguridad en dos pasos. Los paquetes de pago para aumentar la capacidad podrípodrían estar algo más rebajados.rebajados .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mayor visualización como publicidad en páginas empresariales, acuerdos con asociaciones empresariales y ciertas rebajas en sus paquetes de almacenamiento.

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

Lo he utilizado para intercambio de archivos pesados con compañeros de trabajo así como consulta de documentos. También para realizar un trabajo en grupo y poder editarlo desde el mismo programa Google cloud.

"SERVERLESS Functions"

What do you like best?

Documentation for Cloud Functions is very comprehensive and contains examples for all occasions. Almost all.

What do you dislike?

It can be tricky sometimes for an inexperienced person.

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

Google Cloud Functions allowed us to make many API connections with just one function that does just one small task that can trigger a trigger (some condition) or after you explicitly call it by sending a simple REST request to its endpoint.

I like that I can access not only my things but stuff that is shared by the company. No matter where I am I have the documents and information I need.
