We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This platform is popular with technical users because of the abilities for customization and fine-tuning performance."
"This is a solution that's so easy to expand when you need it to. It's the best I've ever seen. It's much better than Azure."
"It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage."
"Simple to use on the web, and makes things easy for a software developer."
"You can just connect and start using it through a browser within a few minutes."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is its ability to scale. The services that connect to the database are also very good."
"Stability is not a concern with this product."
"The most valuable features are the monitoring and the deployment is easier."
"PCF is open, so the applications run really smoothly and with little downtime."
"The ease-of-use could be improved for less technical users."
"The management side for the database needs some work. Currently, you do everything from the APP. It would be nice to have an interface where you can go in and maintain data and deal with records and do something online."
"There are issues with stability."
"Could provide more services."
"Monitoring and usage reporting could be improved."
"If there were more documentation and training, it would be very helpful in explaining the underlying processes."
"In the next release, they should offer additional applications for the databases, and improve the deployment experience."
"The user interface should be simpler to navigate because it t can take time for users to learn it."
"In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools."
"It is not straightforward to setup."
"Google cloud is less expensive than other comparable solutions."
"The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly. There's no scaling, so if you go with the VM, you pay 2500 Rand. When you add another VM, it's another 2500 Rand even though you don't use the whole thing. With Google, you can go up as incrementally as you need to, even if it's just 30 Rand."
"The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors."
"Licensing is on a monthly basis and right now we pay $24/month. There are no other costs over and above that."
