The most valuable feature is the cryptographic technology. Our customers are afraid that their data will be across the world, and they want to know that their data is secure and managed. They don't… more»

What needs improvement?

They could improve their storage and stay current. It is very easy to use Google Cloud Storage, easy to implement, but it is not very flexible when it comes to modifying the parameters. The level of… more»

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

When making the decision the customer is not driven by the price. They are interested in using a well-known and reliable service provider. Our customers don't know the technology, so, we do that for… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I am using AWS, Google, and Microsoft. In the last six months to a year, my experience has been with using Google Cloud Storage, Amazon, and Azure. I have taken courses and completed the exams at an… more»

What is most valuable?

The feature we've found most valuable is the ability to access our data anywhere, anytime. The security on the solution is perfect and the integration with email and email hosting is great.

What needs improvement?

User management could be better. It's a complicated process to delete users and maintain the structure of documents created by deleted users. The solution needs backup and archival functionality. We had an instance where our account renewal was not done in time and we lost information. Archival and… more»

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

The price is fair. Even when you compare it to the competition, I'd say the value we get for every dollar we spend is very good. They have different costs and options for scalability and functionality. We started off with the free edition and then we went for the corporate edition and the business… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are using the public cloud deployment model. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. We are very happy with the services that we are getting. We've been using it for 5 years and apart from the backup issue, we use it every day and we've really got no issues. I would definitely recommend it to… more»

What is most valuable?

What I like about this program, is that it's quite fast, because you pay for your usage. What's more, it is an easy solution to use. It has many tools that you can use, and you can put as much information as you like on there because you pay according to usage. The scalability of this solution is… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement in data visualization as well as new tools to manage storage in any platform. I think Google already has this solution for management. If you have a data set in Amazon, you must be able to manage it with a Google tool and that's a good improvement. I would also… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, I used my phone for data and analytics. I think that Amazon has more features and it is easier to find people who have worked with the phone tools before. However, for data analytics, I prefer Google Cloud because I think it's a stronger solution for data and analytics.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution nine out of ten. The reason why I don't give it a ten is because of the data visualization. In the next version, I would like to have a tool to visualize the data with graphics and so on.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement in the management or admin pages, because at times it is not easy to work with them. Also, I like an improvement in the IAM part of the Google Cloud . They need to… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have worked with Amazon Web Service because it is easy to work on, but it all depends on the customer charge.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to do a good assessment of the solution related to IT communication with the Google Cloud. It can all be very confusing at first, so it is really important to work in… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using this solution has improved the security of our data.

What needs improvement?

The user experience needs to be simplified. It is difficult to configure.

We did not use another solution prior to this one. I selected this one because I have experience with other Google services such as Gmail and Google Docs. There was familiarity.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution because it's established and reliable, although it is not so simple to configure. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options before choosing this one. However, I will be looking at Microsoft Azure, Amazon, and other cloud storage services. We are also considering migration to a private cloud… more»
