Google Cloud Storage Review

Good price, stable, scalable, and allows us to work offline

What is our primary use case?

We are using Google Cloud Storage mainly for our document management. We have its latest version.

What is most valuable?

It is stable and scalable.

What needs improvement?

Its security should be better from the data security point of view. It should be more secure, and it should get tightly integrated with products such as Google Docs and Google Sheets. Microsoft covers different kinds of tools such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. You can scale based on your users. We have more than a thousand users, and it allows me to share across my team.

How are customer service and technical support?

We don't need any support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We tried using other tools from AWS and Microsoft. We have a very limited number of users on Microsoft Azure. Office 365 is only for the senior leadership.

How was the initial setup?

Being a cloud solution, it doesn't require installation. I can also use it offline. To use it offline, I need to install an app on my machine that allows me to work offline and gets synced without my server.

It is completely cloud-managed. We don't need a separate team to maintain it. We only have our regular IT team that creates the users, and they automatically get signed up to Google Storage.

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

Its price is fine. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. We plan to keep using this solution.

I would rate Google Cloud Storage a nine out of ten.

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?
