"Keep Your Life in the Cloud, Not Just Your Head"

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Storage is the easiest, most simple way to organize all your files onto a cloud service. With ample storage, a low cost and access across all your devices, it is easily the most important feature for your "smart" lifestyle. I don't know how I used to live without it.

What do you dislike?

I only wish that I could sync my devices more quickly. I know this is also a connectivity issue, so it is not entirely Google's fault. There are just times when I wait longer than needed to get access to my documents and media.

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

Instead of having to send a giant email that has all recipients entered by hand, I can just share a document on the cloud and everyone has instant access. Google will even notify people by email that a new document has arrived into their cloud storage, which helps remind people.

"Google Cloud puede hacer casi todo en la nube es una gran alternativa a otros clouds."

What do you like best?

A medida que se usa Google Cloud quedas impresionado por la cantidad de servicios disponibles. Puede guardar toda la Data Storage en Google Cloud sin preocuparse por perderlo, puedes agregar audio, fotos, videos y documentos, su nube es muy segura para contener toda la documentación o incluso su trabajo comercial. Puede configurar una cuenta de Google para acceder a la nube y guardar documentación para que pueda acceder a ella desde cualquier lugar, simplemente lo que tienes que hacer es iniciar sesión en tu cuenta de Google Cloud. El almacenamiento que ofrece ayuda a almacenar datos de teléfonos, equipos portátiles, computadoras y otros dispositivos fácilmente y ahorra la molestia de hacer que su sistema sea más lento y lo mejor es que lo puede recuperar en cualquier lugar en cualquier momento con acceso seguro, también la interfaz de línea de comandos se basa en la web por lo que también puede conectarse utilizando el navegador chrome.

What do you dislike?

Google Cloud no es tan optimo con su interfaz de administración, si no sabes lo que estás buscando te cuesta encontrarlo. A veces de vez en cuando, la nube tarda un tiempo en cargarse. También quizás el coste de los servicios de pago pueden parecer algo elevados. El almacenamiento inicial está limitado en la versión gratuita, por lo que puede ser un poco caro dependiendo de sus necesidades.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muy recomendado para todo tipo de usuarios y administradores medio avanzados, si quieres mantener seguro tus proyectos comerciales en la nube, este es sin duda tu software y se llama Google Cloud.

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

Utilizo Google Cloud para almacenar la mayor parte de mi documentación comercial, incluido audios, fotos, videos y documentos y proyectos de empresa.

"Good Platform To Use As An IaaS Provider With Excellent Performance And Availability"

What do you like best?

We particularly like signed URLs that enable us to offload much of the network and memory costs from our VMs because our clients can securely write and read directly to GCS

What do you dislike?

GCS is probably fine, but Google's other services for compute (specifically GAE) has poor connectivity to GCS rendering GCS not as usable as S3

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes I would recommend but be cautious about its features and have a look at azure and aws s3 as well before going for this and coose wisely

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

Our experience with Google has been stellar. They've provided us with a phenomenal account team who are responsive, understand our needs and environment, and keep us up to date. Their performance and uptime have been impeccable. While they're a little behind AWS in the full breadth of their service offerings, the low cost more than makes up for it. We literally couldn't've implemented, cost-wise, on AWS or Azure.

"Google Cloud Storage is Needless to study how to use!"

What do you like best?

Super easy to understand how to use the product. Also, it has scalable functionality with resiliant storagability. Most of cloud engineer tend to use Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Services called S3, however, Google Cloud Storage has the same functionality as it. Moreover, I am really satisfied to gsutil command and its parallel option -m. Great easy to move, create, delete, update objects and buckets as like doing on Linux as usual! Very exciting to use! Hopefully, Google Cloud Storage should be improve more frequently to be no 1 of public cloud market. I believe that you can do it at all in near future!

What do you dislike?

Google Cloud Storage should have a text editer to instantly re-edit text in a file on Google Cloud Storage page. If it could be in real, users can avoid re-upload for transfer to deploy. This improvement will be smash hit to compete to other public cloud services. Be #1 of public cloud through Google Cloud Storage !!

Recommendations to others considering the product

GCS is super easy to use as like Google Drive. Most of young generation have experienced on gsuit so easy to adapt to use Google Cloud Storage instantly. Also, note that GCS has the same functionalty as AWS S3. Do not hegitate to utilize it.

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

We have more than 30 million files to analyze academic research papers. We just upload to Google Cloud Storage and transfer among Google Cloud Platform very fast to program processing on BigQuery or someelse.

"Storing-Data is Like Walking on a Cloud*"

What do you like best?

Data and information can be stored through this online web-platform and be made easily accessible via the Google's Cloud. Google Cloud Storage is an exceptional storage-medium for a multitude of purposes. This application is ideal at uploading and downloading files, syncing data, organzing documentation, and storing unlimited amounts of data data straight from web or mobile applications. Data and information can be securely-stored with this app

What do you dislike?

The layout of this app could be improved, as well as a more informative user's guide/tutorial for new users attempting to navigate this application. A more detailed-library would be helpful for users who store mass-amounts of data. This app also runs slowly at times which is another issue that can be improved

Recommendations to others considering the product

The feature I enjoy is the 'Resumable uploads' feature which allows users to pick up where they left-off and re-upload an upload that was in-progress but got disrupted. The upload can be resumed with this option which is an essential-asset for most. Another useful-asset this storage-device offers is that you can essentially pay-as-you-go for storage-space within this interface depending on how much storage is required.

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

Sharing documents and information with your collaborators has never been made easier. Electronic-assets can be delivered through this modernized-platform in a sophisticated-fashion. Data can be easily accessed and retrieved. Images, and photos can be showcased here. This application is universally-accessible which allows colleagues to connect oversees. This application accomplishes seemingly complex-processes wonderfully and seamlessly. It's practicality is unmatched

"Backup copies of files and documents on the network"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this document manager is the integration with IOS and android. The files stored in the Google Drive folder are automatically saved in the cloud, this makes it very easy to work from the mobile phone. It also has the option to save photos in an unlimited way, very useful for taking photos with your mobile phone as it links and saves access to them at any time.

What do you dislike?

The limitation of the capacity for the storage of heavy files is an aspect to improve. Its usefulness is that it focuses on photos and that it has left aside the storage of other documents, an aspect that its main competitors do not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a fairly simple platform that integrates backup services with a somewhat sparse space, perfect for small users who want to access a good user interface and who do not handle large amounts of data.

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

The integration in my company is very good, it works perfectly with Mac and Windows and with IOS and android with what I do not care if I have to use the mobile phone or the computer since it supports any type of software.

The implementation was very fast and no major complications arose as it has a very simple user panel to understand and operate.

"File management tool versatile and easy to manage"

What do you like best?

The great advantage I have seen is the ease of integrating large documents and the speed to hang and access them. It also presents a fairly simple migration to virtual machines or containers with flexible prices, without long-term dependencies, which makes this tool a great option.

What do you dislike?

As with I would say that the connectivity with other technologies is not complete, so it could give some integration problem. Allows use of free software technology encouraged by the community although it is not fully developed as it has some limitations in the programming environment that makes it not entirely practical and can not take many of the parameters that configure it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

User-friendly tool for all users who want to have their work fully organized and quick access to it.

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

I have been using this application since it was implemented in the company and to recognize that from the beginning the ease of use was very fast. Most files are managed with a very intuitive user interface that allows me to host a large number of files and videos in the cloud.

What do you dislike?

User panel somewhat complex for a new user who does not have prior knowledge.

File location through folders could be faster and more accessible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cloud to store information in the cloud with good benefits, I recommend it actively.

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

My experience is focused on keeping documentation of both Excel and video files. Immediate storage and response time of the application at the moment.

"Great customer service and great product."

What do you like best?

Great success is the technical team that supports this tool. They resolve doubts at the moment and have a great professional team behind them.

What do you dislike?

The main disadvantage may be the cost price that rises a little if you leave the budget allocated and more implementations are requested.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this work tool that allows updating, maintaining a great control of the essential documentation in the company, having everything perfectly within reach and completely integrated in all the departments.

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

My experience has been very satisfactory. The implementation and technical service has been exceptional, great flexibility at the time of having to change on the fly some aspects that my company demanded. Documentation migrations have been up to date without loss of information, and have managed to recover information that was corrupt.

"Storage easy to use and with great documentation."

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Storage it's my main storage target in the cloud, is very simple to configure, automate and with support for third party solutions, the documentation is great and the cost is fair.

What do you dislike?

The CLI should be more easy to configure in systems headless, for this case you need copy one URL and get the token in another machine to configure the access with CLI client.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For S3 storage is more easy to setup than AWS and price is fair.

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

All my backups are stored here, with the CLI and some scripting is very easy to automate a small and simple solution.

"The most popular cloud storage platform."

What do you like best?

The 15GB free storage space.

Google provides a lot of options beyond its free account as well.

Google drive's syncing supports multiple devices.

Let's us share files and folders using the mobile app or the web browser interface.

What do you dislike?

The pricing beyond the free space.

There can be an improvement in the interface.

Rest, everything is perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You won't be disappointed like any other google product.

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

Faster file syncing, better password control for shared links and the storage package is helping to be a good storage platform for the organization.

"Easy to use, but lacks features"

What do you like best?

It's simple to use, I like the fact that the gs:// uri can be used across the platform.

What do you dislike?

Now that Keras is part of the TensorFlow project, there should be integration so that data can be automatically imported into Keras directly from a gs bucket. Last time I checked, we had to actually move the data from GS to the local compute engine instance where I'm running the Keras script which added extra hurdles. GS is also relatievely feature poor- there are not many bells and whistles

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

Data and Analytics-based projects. Logging.

"Ease of Use"

What do you like best?

Google Storage and their associated libraries make it super easy to integrate fast and start storing cold data. To get access to a global CDN that easily is truly exceptional. You can blindly trust that the data that you push into the cloud will be there and quickly accessible by you or your users.

What do you dislike?

The webui and how you examine search and digest the massive amount of content you may upload to the service. I found it a little tricky at first to figure out how to create "buckets" to segment applications within the same account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

try it first to make sure it fits your use-case

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

Storing massive amounts of photos and static attachment content. The benefits is I never have to worry about securely/reliably storing and accessing content.

"Google Cloud Storage Product Review"

What do you like best?

This product is very user intuitive and it is very easy tool to manage the data from anywhere.

What do you dislike?

This product works well within the GCP suite. However, when it used external to AWS or any 3rd party product, we need to customize the security settings and more need to perform configurations inorder to make it work.

"drive stream is brilliant but need to allow non-commercial accts to get taste"

What do you like best?

I believe if the model free to paid has worked in the past then I think you should offer drive stream up to the space limits you give free users then that would allow them to experience this amazing product.

Also non-profit gsuite users need more space

What do you dislike?

"Not super experience with GC Storage, but it's easy to use"

What do you like best?

I can see that I have all of the ordinary features of a product like MySQL, but wrapped in a Cloud environment that allows for much deeper isolation and virtualization. I'm also intrigued -- though not deeply experienced yet -- in the security aspects of the product.

What do you dislike?

So far, nothing. I'm sorry, I can't say much -- either positive or negative -- yet.

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

None yet. We use Azure and Cloud Foundry. I'm here looking at GCP and other Google innovations.

Unlimited storage in the cloud. I don't have to decide how much I need and I can access my data from anywhere!

This product is so easy to access and so flexible it's hard to pick something I don't like. Maybe it could be faster? Everyone likes it when services are faster right?

This service is often leveraged to decouple our application tiers. Not having to worry about persistant data on our comppute instances is great.

"gCloud is awesome"

What do you like best?

Makes collaboration remotely a breeze. I've collaborated with colleagues across continents in different time zones. Can easily see who has added what comments, sections, accept suggested edits.

What do you dislike?

The version history could use improvement. It works well when we name various versions, but otherwise the version history is too chaotic with too many versions to be very useful. Something closer to github commits would be helpful.

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

Collaboration, file storage, project management.
