Google Cloud Review

A user-friendly fully managed cloud computing solution

What is our primary use case?

We use Google Cloud as a data warehouse. We build modern data warehouses on the cloud mainly for reporting and business analytics needs.

What is most valuable?

The most useful feature of Google Cloud is that it's basically completely managed or fully managed. There is no administration or maintenance needed from the user, and it's very simple to use.

What needs improvement?

Workload management could be better. Their pricing could also be more flexible.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Google Cloud for about two and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Google Cloud is pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Google Cloud is highly scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

As it's a fully managed serverless service, there is no setup needed.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise potential users to first try it out and see whether the pricing model meets their requirements.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Google Cloud an eight.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
