Google Cloud assessment

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: In general, I still use Google Cloud quite frequently, its storage is my life, I really like the application and I can't see myself without it.

Pros:

What I liked most was the fact that the storage was easy and cohesive to access, and its usefulness was very practical.

Cons:

What I would like to have more in Google Cloud are more tools like extensions, they even have them, but I think they could be better optimized.

Google Cloud Review

3.0 8 months ago

Comments: My overall experience is not good as Google Cloud does not provide an easy interface and i have to do everything through the terminal. Also, it is a little bit expensive.

Pros:

I like the free credits that Google Cloud provides for researchers to explore the platform. Google Cloud is very good in services related to NLP/text especially the that it is supporting multiple languages for these services. Also, I like the dashboards that Google Cloud offers to track and monitor the services I am currently using.

Cons:

Google Cloud has a very limited service for AI comparing to other competitors. The interface of Google Cloud is not easy to use, and I cannot customize it as I want. Also, I do not like the pricing of some services on Google Cloud like the virtual machines, it is really very expensive.

Google cloud recommendation

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I work for a channel that is a Google partner for education. I know all the goodness.

Pros:

I like that it is 100% native. It has many layers of security. Currently 9.4M is the cost per hack in an organization.

Cons:

Currently, many organizations use Microsoft and many are afraid to make the change from SQL to Google.

I love cloud storage

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Keeps my data and information stored safely.

Pros:

I like how I still have all important data saved, even if damage is done to my computer or phone.

Cons:

Monthly fee can add up to quite a bit if you are storing a lot of information.
