Google Cloud Storage Nearline Review

Good API integration and supports various types of data but is very expensive

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as storage for the databases.

What is most valuable?

The API integration with the storage packet is the solution's most valuable feature.

The data structure and the types of data that are supported are very good.

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be improved. It's completely non-competitive at this time.

We have some issues around date/time conversions. It requires a little bit of tweaking to get things done. You can't seem to import a date/time field into SQL.

The solution needs more GUI support.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There's no problem when it comes to scaling on the solution. We don't work with much data, so we haven't scaled too much ourselves.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay. We find that the cloud helps the users. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. Google makes everything quite easy. Deployment took about one month.

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

The pricing is quite high.

What other advice do I have?

It's my first time using a cloud solution.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd rate it higher but I find the pricing ridiculous.
