"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

"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.

"A service that offers much more than storage"

What do you like best?

Google Cloud Storage is an ideal tool to handle file uploads and perform actions when those files are loading. It also has a large number of tools that allow you to work and analyze data from the command line and the web interface

What do you dislike?

Initially, Google Cloud Storage was changing sporadically, and several of these changes resulted in the system code being modified in order to adapt it

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to have knowledge about database management, connections and optimization to obtain better results

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

It was possible to streamline the process of storing information, allowing us to focus on other processes of the corporation

"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.

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.

What do you like best?

The simplicity, and the features it offers. I like the seamless integration with Wordpress. It has enabled me to speed up all of my websites as well as my clients' websites.

What do you dislike?

Because of the so many options, it can be kind of hard to get the hang of it at first. But I found it to be easier than AWS.

"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?

mapped drive letter seems like could be vulnerable with ransomware attack

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Great Product, Wish Signing URLs from Client Was Easier Though"

What do you like best?

the service is flexible and accessible from a variety of means. It is also performant and cost effective.

What do you dislike?

I Wish that files could be uploaded from Client Side more easily. AWS has a feature for S3 to quickly and easily sign URLs for upload on Client Side and that is pretty much its only advantage over GCS
