I love that integration with the rest of the G Suite. I also love that it doesn't cost us anything to utilize the Google Cloud and that everything runs seamlessly through it.

Google Cloud Platform is simply awesome

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: It is good platform to make your database secure, fast and reliable.

Pros:

It is easy to customize or configure disk based on type and size of the disk through console. The Google compute works great, from this the repository and file for store can be create with ease and maintaining and set up is this is also good. The data can be accessed from anywhere and from any device easily and quickly. The bet of Google Cloud platform is which I like most is we need to pay as per utilization or the feature we opt from this platform. Google cloud is fast, safe, and secure and optimize database as service. It give the best solution for business based on its cloud services.

Cons:

We face many problems when we are migrating our virtual machines from one zone to another. Process of migrating VM’s is bit complex and confusing one.
