Effective background operation, free to use, and stable

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution operates in the background and it is attached to my Gmail account. When I download files to my phone, such as pictures, they automatically go to Google Cloud Storage."

    What is our primary use case?

    Whenever we take pictures on the mobile, it sends the file to Google Cloud Storage since it's linked to the Gmail account. 

    What is most valuable?

    The solution operates in the background and it is attached to my Gmail account. When I download files to my phone, such as pictures, they automatically go to Google Cloud Storage. 

    I have been able to retrieve files I have stored on Google Cloud Storage from ten years ago.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Google Cloud Storage for approximately two years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution is stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    If you are using Android and a Gmail account Google Cloud Storage is used by default. Many people are using this service and might not know.

    How are customer service and support?

    I have not had an issue contacting support.

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

    The solution is free unless you want to increase the GB data allowance. There is a cost if you want to increase the size of storage space which is expensive.

    What other advice do I have?

    When I use the solution I do not check it to see if it is backing up my information. However, I have retrieved files from it from years ago.

    I would recommend this solution to others.

    I rate Google Cloud Storage a nine out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    Provides limited storage for free

    What is our primary use case?

    My primary use case is to meet my personal storage needs. I don't use it much because, for free, it provides a limited amount of storage. 

    What is most valuable?

    I have more than enough personal storage and have had no security issues. 

    What needs improvement?

    This solution could be improved by increasing integration with other tools, like Microsoft. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Google Cloud Storage since it first became available to users. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Google Cloud is stable. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    I'm not aware of any scalability challenges because I'm using the private version.

    Since this is a cloud-based solution, there is no installation. 

    What about the implementation team?

    I implemented myself. 

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

    It provides a very limited amount of storage because it's free. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate Google Cloud a nine out of ten. I would recommend this because I have more than enough personal storage and there are no security issues that I'm aware of.
