"Simple, reliable storage mechanism for VMs"

What do you like best?

It really is as simple as one could expect, and haven't had a single issue with reliability. I like the deep integration into various Google Cloud Platform products, such as Kubernetes.

What do you dislike?

I wish regional disks could be attributed to more zones, or that there was a quicker way to validate files on disk rather than attaching it to an instance and SSHing into it. I also wish there was the capability to set usage alerts, e.g. when at 85%, send an alert prior to scaling storage up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Choose regional disks if possible when working in regional Kubernetes clusters -- you can choose up to two zones.

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

- Operating regional MongoDB within Kubernetes clusters via persistent disk and StatefulSet

- Providing responsive data storage for large dataset workloads directly attached to the VM instance

"Google Persistent Disks perform as expected"

What do you like best?

They have been reliable thus far and have pretty decent performance characteristics. You can mount multiple disks and resize live and mount a single disk read-only onto multiple servers

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. The ideal feature would be a network disk type setup where you could have multiple read write servers but then it would basically be a network file system and need some sort of conflict resolution and isn't possible with current tech while retaining the same performance characteristics.
