Cons
"The user interface could be more intuitive.""The solution should improve its security and accountability.""They need more enhancements in the security features.""Could be improved from a storage perspective and a cost perspective.""Having more storage space would be an 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.""The problem I face right now is that my data warehouse is being hosted on Google Cloud, however, integration between Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure is a big problem.""The solution should have two factor authentication."

More Google Cloud Storage Cons »

"I am not sure what will happen if you forget to renew your license.""A separate interface to give users a summary of how they've shared items on the drive would be useful. You can end up having a lot of stuff and the sheer amount can end up making users feel a little bit lost in terms of knowing who they've actually shared items with.""There is really not too much that I think needs to be added to the product to improve it. Some of the features within Sheets could be enhanced so this product is a more complete replacement for Excel.""I would like to see better integration with Google Docs, the Google landscape in general, and other environments.""In the free version, managing the files and folders and data is a little difficult.""The ability to share documents with outside clients can be improved. It is difficult to share documents with outside clients, and that's why I am looking at some other solution. If you use Google Drive, they want you to use all of their Google Suite, but not everybody uses Google Suite for document creation. It is not a great solution if you are working with a company that doesn't use Google Suite.""It should have more features similar to Office 365. To improvise more, they should compare their features with Office 365.""It's a cloud-based product that is stable and secure, but I would like to see more security features added."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Better pricing would be helpful.""Its price is fine.""It's about nearly $10,000 USD to use the services on GCP, however, Google gave us a good deal which is why we originally went with them.""The solution is free.""They have recently changed their pricing structures, it used to be free but now it is a paid service. However, I am on a monthly subscription and the price is reasonable.""The price could be cheaper."

More Google Cloud Storage Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The program is very affordable.""It is inexpensive and the cost is per user per month.""There is a monthly fee that we pay for the use of this solution and the price is fair.""It has a yearly license."
