Cons
It is charged in dollar which makes it very expensive for people living in countries where the local currency is weak compared to the US dollar.

I dislike that it causes me to worry about privacy in regards to anything I upload. You never truly know where it's going or who has access when it goes to the cloud.

Why Google Platform

Reviewed 17 days ago

It was a great experience in the world of cloud services and thank you Google for making a platform so powerful and simple .

Pros

The user interface is friendly without complications, the availability of support, and his eagerness to solve the problem and clarify matters . Giving you $300 when you register for the first time with a Credit or Debit Card to enjoy an experience on the platform, and I think $300 is a very enough amount and there is no platform that does that .

Cons

The problem I faced was because the documentation is not updated and depends on an old interface and terminology, so I resorted to support to help me 0

GCP is OK, but..

Reviewed 13 days ago

From our experience it's OK for quick projects, quicker than amazon aws. For long term software stability or precise capabilities we'd go to Azure anytime.

Pros

Very powerful, straightforward, it sports a lot of the tools you probably want

Cons

Less comprehensive and enterprise oriented than Azure, less legacy compatibility, unclear and swift platform changes.

Google Cloud Platform is getting better and better

Reviewed 3 months ago

I am a huge fan of Google Cloud Platform. I have been using their services for years now, and I am amazed at how easy it is to get started. They have great tutorials that walk you through the process, and they also have an excellent support team. They are always available to answer questions, and they are great at making sure you don't get stuck.While GCP was behind AWS for quite a while, Google has done a good job of making their system more approachable through good tutorial videos.

Pros

GCP is a powerhouse platform with a lot of flexibility and strengths. Now that they've optimized the platform to make it more understandable for non-engineers, we're using it more often since it is easy to spin up whatever you need.

Cons

While GCP was behind AWS for quite a while, Google had a slow start to be an approachable platform for the less tech-savvy. Even now, there are more options and switches than sometimes seem appropriate.
