"Best Platform for Organising Tons of DATA"

What do you like best?

Google cloud load balancer is very good and managed service provided by google to manage the load on servers, in this service we put many servers behind elb and suppose we have lots of hit then it manage the hits and divide them equally on servers so we improved our performance and reliability. Very good and widely used service of aws to manage the hits on resources and automatically manage them.

What do you dislike?

Let me start by saying that the thing I dislike the most applies to the Google cloud load balancer, which was the one used for my application needs. I did not use or have any experience with either their newest "Google Load Balancer" or the "cloud Load Balancer". That said, the load balancer works great under continuous, non-spikey traffic but fails to accommodate instantaneous spikes in network requests. Extensive internet research showed that the load balancer needs to be "pre-warmed" and this is done by filing a request to Google support 24 hours ahead of the expected increase in traffic.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

NGINX, f5 BIGIP platform, AWS ELASTIC LOAD BALANCER, Azure load balancer, cloud test,Citrix ADC

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

The goal of the project was to have a stateless Wordpress installation, as described in the "WordPress: Best Practices on Google cloud load balancer is white paper. Although we followed the guide to the letter, the end result failed to meet our requirements, mostly due to performance issues of the load balancer mentioned above.

"Google Cloud Load Balancing: Intelligent Scaling Of Your Resources"

What do you like best?

I absolutely loved the fact that we could distribute our load-balanced compute resources to various regions, located closer to our users. This greatly helped in handling queries during high demand period. SSL load balancing was a plus: having an encrypted load balancing greatly added to our secured IT environment.

What do you dislike?

Considerable IT knowledge is required and even though the admin panel is user-friendly, it is still not enough for a proper handling. Dedicated free customer support is not available as desired.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend and rank Google Cloud Load Balancing amongst the 2 best, with CloudFlare Load Balancing in the race. Really worth trying.

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

We were able to handle multiple queries to our instance without any issue.

"Google Cloud Load Balancing Reviews"

What do you like best?

I completely cherished the way that we could disperse our heap adjusted process assets to different districts, found nearer to our clients. This significantly helped in taking care of questions amid intense interest period. SSL load adjusting was an or more: having an encoded burden adjusting enormously added to our verified IT condition.

What do you dislike?

Valuing is insensitive, and in my view, excessively high of an expense for Kubernetes based organizations. Autogenerated names from Google Kubernetes Engine don't uncover bits of knowledge into which group/administration a heap balancer is ascribed too at first look.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider inspecting your framework plan, particularly in Kubernetes, to guarantee that estimating doesn't winding crazy with the expansion of different burden balancers in each bunch.

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

it help me for improving execution of the application by adjusting the heap on a few examples dependent on interest. It additionally helps for DR purposes.

"Cloud native load balancing that just works"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and native integration with Google Kubernetes Engine makes it a breeze to deploy and utilize within our deployment processes. Native support for health checking, layer 7 load balancing, ingress controllers, and wide customization options make it a near perfect tool.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is obtuse, and in my view, too high of a cost for Kubernetes based deployments. Autogenerated names from Google Kubernetes Engine don't reveal insights into which cluster/service a load balancer is attributed too at first glance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider reviewing your infrastructure plan, especially in Kubernetes, to ensure that pricing doesn't spiral out of control with the addition of multiple load balancers in each cluster.

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

Google Cloud Load Balancing aids us in handling and directing API ingress traffic to appropriate Kubernetes services, living behind a gateway provider (Ambassador).

"Cloud Traffic Police !!!!"

What do you like best?

Google cloud load balancer helps to distribute the client requests across multiple application servers that are running in a cloud environment there by manages the traffic on the servers located across multiple locations. It helps application to run steady and stable by distributing the requests and reduces load on the server.Google cloud balancing enables to maximize application performance and reliability: it helps to monitor failure, high traffic and even low traffic and spin down VM's that are not required.

What do you dislike?

If the service is down, fail all requests quickly instead of waiting for each request to timeout.

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

Application will be up and running in all the locations and response to the requests will be fast as load balancer distribute the requests to the available zones.

"Good Google Cloud Platform"

What do you like best?

I like that it is use because I feel google makes its products easy and convenient to use and this is no different. Very understandable to navigate and its organization is clear and concise. Also provides a high volume of storage which is nice. I also enjoy that everything is scalable to your preferences so when dealing with client based projects, it would load quickly and accurately.

What do you dislike?

Can be somewhat laggy and shut off or down on me more than I would like it to. I also think it does not work as well with mac applications versus windows, etc. Can also be slow on connecting to a network when first loading or starting up. The product talks a lot about backend health and efficiency but I'm not sure, in my opinion, if that's its best feature. I also find that this product isn't immediately matching the updates of other softwares or applications but it doesn't lag too far behind

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

Efficient and trackable procedures; performance is pretty consistent. I was able to use it to scale almost all of my traffic and process any type of inquiry quickly

"A review on Google Cloud Load Balancing "

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Load Balancing is a typical cloud internal load balancing software. I travel for work so love that it is able to connect to VPN and the entire app is available via a single IP address. This has proven to be a good cloud system for internal use and for a largely trafficked/high query market.

What do you dislike?

While you get the name “Google” there are other severs that offer similar features, if not more, such as AWS. It does not offer multi-cloud support or analytics monitoring.

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

I like that it is not device based, and you can apply cloud load balancing to HTTP, TCP, UDP, etc.

The offering for load balancing are really good. Global http load balancing is very helpful for my work. Simplifies a lot of the infrastructure architecting I do.

What do you dislike?

I would like more robust offering for Network load balancing with the capability to use custom ports. Not being able to map different/custom ports at backend. Also IPv6 is something I would really want asap.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Need to be more flexible and more with the capability have customize backend ports/protocols

"Google Cloud Saved My Drive"

What do you like best?

That it stores all my things in a drive that doesn't take up space on my own drive. I can log into it off any computer and it automatically saves

What do you dislike?

It disconnects all the time and occasionally my things aren't backed up.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Google is such an innovative software. It never fails to complement to the user. They inverted their support to reflect to the needs of customers and that shows in all their products.

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

Not so much business problems as student problems. Its a good way to share documents for group projects and have open access to data.

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

We were able to use many queries to handle business problems daily.
