What do you like best?

Google IOT Core gives the ease of registring devices and making Iot deployment faster. The option to have mutiple datastream helps in data managment. All payload have the neccesary information to identify and segregrate the devices. Extending from Google PubSub to Iot Core was easy since Pubsub is used under the hood of iot core for datastreaming Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Certain features like device state have a throttle limit of updating only once per second. If your device tries multiple times within a second, then the connection is dropped. This becomes a pain as you have to ensure that the device is not reporting state while it's offline and doesn't send all the state messages at once when the device goes online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Building a Cyber-Physical System to keep check of drinking water in a building and using iot core to configure and automate tasks in the building.

What do you like best?

Google Cloud IoT analyzes data both at the edge and in the cloud. It is a complete set of tools that helps connect and store information and it is fully managed by cloud services. Savings of up to 57% without up-front fees or instance-type lock-in. You can pick any configuration of CPU and memory to save up to 48% compared to fixed machine types from other clouds. I like that you pay for services as needed, you save money and can focus on innovating. There are no termination fees so we can stop paying for services the second we turn it off. That helps the business by saving money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike about the Google Cloud IoT is the prices. The prices are not reasonable especially for small business owners and Entrepreneurs. You pay per second, which is how a cloud should work but it becomes pricey. You can get up to 79% off workloads that can be interrupted, like data mining and data processing but I wish it was 100%. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the free trial and I guarantee you will love it and will use it forever. High recommended to friends and coworkers. Give Google Cloud a chance you will not regret it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like what this product does for data. For someone who is newly interested in collecting data and showing how it can improve business and also show what may be hurting business, I think this is an amazing tool and I am hopeful I will get better at utilizing all its functions. Google has a way of combining tools that make my life a little easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints with the product yet. I do wish that is had its own tutorial for newbies like myself to learn how to utilize the data in a more beneficial factor, but I guess that is what classes charge for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend that you take some data analytics courses if you have time for you to be able to know how to truly apply the data you have compiled and put it to good use. I have not mastered this by any means, but am a work in progress. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

With data, especially in a human resources role, you can use data to see why turnover rates and what data correlates with the least desirable outcome you are looking for and try to modify from there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's really convenient for deploying IOT systems. The organizational structure really helps us keep track of projects. Also, multiple language support such as python, nodeJS, and pub-sub mechanism are very useful for controlling and reading the data for devices Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Could improve on the beginner documentation in my opinion. It might be very daunting to get started using it for someone who is not very familiar with IOT systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would advise a novice to get familiar with cloud services before getting started with using Google IOT core. Once familiar with that, it's really easy to use and has lots of key features required for IoT device management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I've used it to build a plug and play universal IOT system for carbon content and water quality monitoring. Remote control of sensors is, in my opinion, the biggest benefit that the system provides. Also, the support of various communication protocols such as MQTT and I2C makes it very convenient to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like the most is the price. You do not have to pay a monthly "rent" to upload large files. This is the biggest benefit. You only pay when you download the files. This payment method is the perfect solution for small businesses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is extremely difficult to adjust the settings. the sellers do not explain anything, and you have no one to turn to if you need help. The most they do is provide you with a link to a multi-page article with extremely difficult to understand text.

You have two options: either hire an IT to set up for you, or you need to take a course at NASA to maybe set up your account by yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Google urgently needs to make this service platform clearer and easier to use. It was necessary to call an IT specialist to get our account set up for what we needed.

All instructions are extremely long and complex, in addition getting the necessary information is very difficult.

Any help you ask to a salesperson the answers is always the same: "You have the explanation on this link ...", and when you access the link it is an extremely difficult 7-page article to be understood. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

As you do not have to pay monthly (wonderful feature) it is the most in-demand option to make backup mirroring of our files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
