Pros: With Google File Stream, which saves to the Google Cloud, you can save more than just google files (docs, sheets, etc.) to your cloud. I save pages documents (mac word processor), photos, screenshots, and more all in one place that is easy to access on my computer. The best part? There's no risk of losing all my work if I were to, say, spill my latte on my laptop.

Cons: I've had some issues with the file stream drive not being able to open files unless I eject it and re-open it. It doesn't happen all the time, and it's frustrating, but also an easy fix.

I use it for all my cloud storage needs.,Its very safe and secure and has a user friendly interface.

Pros: Higher Productivity, Less Disruption is Caused When Users Adopt New Functionality,Can Work From Anywhere.

Cons: There are some production services that feel still as beta - but you might not need them!
Google Cloud and Azure are behind AWS. Every year there is a new feature on AWS that GCP/Azure are following. If your business needs to be on top of cutting-edge technologies. I would go for AWS
Our experience indicates, there are some DevOps services or technologies that take more time than on AWS. Ex. Creating an snapshot of an instance (Server), you have to turn off the instance hence downtime for a few secs!. This thought is from Feb 2018 it could change in the next months/years.

Pros: Without comparison, Google Cloud Platform services are excellent. I was able to participate in a project in which a SaaS was integrated for a very demanding client. The features offered by Google Cloud are spectacular.

Cons: It is necessary to mention that the implementation of SaaS in Google Cloud was quite difficult, now explain: the software architecture that the client needed at that time depended on certain features that Google Cloud did not have then, we had to find an unorthodox way to find a solution, but still limited in functionality.

Pros: I have been using the Google Cloud Platform software along with my IT team to help create new websites for the different business units within the organization. GCP helps to keep the creation of the different sites easy to accomplish for someone who does not have a computer/web design background.

Cons: I had trouble understand how to use some of the tools in the program, and just getting started was not as easy as I hoped. I needed assistance from my internal IT team to complete some of the tasks.

Overall: Great tool to help design websites.

Pros: Google Cloud Platform has an excellent interface, and can be accessed from any device at any time. I am not sure about the pricing, but have been told that it is affordable.

Cons: I may be in the minority on this, but I do not like their VM software. It was easy to use, but I am old and just prefer VMware or Virtualbox.

Overall: So this is one software that I did not use at work, this was actually used between several churches for development of church related software and media.

I can never lose them and can always access them....what's better than that?!

Cons: The only thing I like least about this software is whenever I don't have internet, I can't access my stuff. It's a small thing that really can't be fixed, but it's still unfortunate.

Pros: We're having a great experience thanks to Google Cloud Platform solution for hosting static files and database with great response times. Also, what I really like about Google's approach is the scalability where you can start for free and if you need, you pay for just what you're using.

Cons: At the moment I can't complain about their services, since our solutions aren't that big in scope, but it's solving our problems perfectly.

Cons: I am limited in my ability to use this software as it is not HIPPA compliant, therefore I can only use it for general education materials, and not for my business, which is in healthcare.

Pros: The power of this product and its versatility is amazing, also it is very easy to manage with different tools, the content on the internet is huge and also the comunity. Also it is very easy to install. The docummentation is pretty easy to find and have a lot of content to dig and take more advantage of the program.

Cons: Tools to manage your data are not as advanced or good as you can imagine, or maybe we are used to use other apps. There are security aspects that are more than a pain, because when configurating or giving access to users you will hit with some problems or things that you must do but you didn't know or are not explained very well.

Overall: Data storage and backups, we had problems with our server and almost lost everything, so this was a good workaround. It is super stable, scalable and a powerfull tool.

We started using the Google Cloud Platform for backup storage.

Pros: Compared to AWS, the deployment time on Google Cloud Platform is faster than that on AWS. GCP is cheaper than AWS. The charge mode on GCP is friendly than AWS. So for startups who do not have a great number of user request, it is more money-saving to use GCP than using AWS.

Cons: The document of Google Cloud Platform is a little messy. Sometimes it will introduce several different concepts in one section. This is confusing especially for beginners. It will be more clear to separate different concepts into individual sections instead of trying to merging them together. After all, most document readings are from beginners.

Pros: I used the service for about 6 months, until I encountered the problem of server hangup. When the server crashed for the first time, I contacted the support team. After several attempts to get rid of me by standard unsubscribes, I received a response that the problem will be fixed within 12 hours. The next day, I encountered the same situation, I could not wait to get help from tech support. In the end, I solved the problem by finding the necessary information on one of the forums. I'm afraid to even think about what would have happened if I had not mastered English perfectly.

Cons: Technical support is removed by standard templates, if you begin to explain to them in the popular technical language that they are wrong, promise to solve the problem and disappear for 12 hours.

Pros: This is a must if you are developing for Android. The integration of the platform is the highlight when you are developing mobile apps. There seems to be discounts as well when using the platform this way; however, this was something that I could not test. They do roll out new features and do well with requests.

Cons: They always seem to be behind Amazon and Microsoft. They were late to the game, so their product offering is always playing catch up. Pricing seems to be a bit high too. Their customer service is a bit lacking until you reach a higher enterprise level.

Pros: This might be a little risky, but at this point, I trust all my backup data to be stored on Google cloud. It never goes down, it is always accessible, runs on mobile and desktops and never runs out of space. I'm not sure what else you expect since google offers nearly everything to do to the public free of charge unless you are needing massive amounts of data.

Cons: There is some issues getting it to work properly when it links in and out of Outlook servers. Though I suspect this is not a google issue but more on Outlook which tends to be total garbage.

Pros: We moved our Docker-based server infrastructure to Google Cloud due to some more complex networking needs we had when switching our container management from Ansible to Kubernetes. So far GC has provided everything we need (with one minor exception -- see cons) and the setup and configuration seems significantly less complicated than the other large cloud provider we were using. The compilation of our logs into Stackdriver Logging makes watching the containers less of a chore, and running Kubernetes on this platform works very well (no surprise given Google's involvement in Kubernetes). Honestly, it's a little hard to tell whether the GC infrastructure is much simpler than our last provider (AWS) or if it's the switch to Kubernetes. I can say the combination of the two for us is a real winner.

Cons: We use Postgres for our DB and needed point-in-time backups. We weren't comfortable with the current state of the Google Cloud options for Postgres, so we're using databaselabs (running on GC coincidentally) instead of using GC directly.

Pros: The UI and docs of google cloud platform are, in my opinion, the easiest to understand among all cloud providers. As a developer that translates in to faster go to market of product and faster debugging of any arising issues. This gives our customers a more resilient product with features reaching them sooner.

Cons: The bandwidth (network egress) costs are astronomical. Additionally I would love to see a "given this usage, your bill will be X". One Friday I set up a proof of concept flexible app engine environment and logged back in on Monday to see that I had blown through the free tier and was being charged for usage.

Pros: Google offers its Cloud Platform for free for non-profits. It is a fantastic option for churches with it's many apps (docs, sheets, etc.) especially in a church such as mine where the team and volunteers are increasingly spread out-- it's rare we're ever in the same room together.

Then, once set up, the admin side of things is quite complex and difficult to navigate even for me, a pastor who thinks of himself as quite savvy with such things.

Overall: The free non-profit version allowed us to transition from an old version of Microsoft Office even on a tight budget and improved our productivity in the process.

Pros: I use the google cloud under a hipaa BAA for storage of health care information in a secure and legal manner - simple process to setup and do.

Cons: I wish there was a way to simplify the feature-set as there are some things that I do not need and would rather not see in settings.

The new kid in the block. Has all the core features as of now. Slowly getting better.

Pros: Google Cloud has an easy to use interface. Has most of the features that you would expect from a cloud platform. The machine learning section is one of the strongest. It is hands down better than AWS or Azure. Besides, Google Cloud is a bit cheaper than AWS too.

Cons: Does not have many of the lastest featurs of AWS like Lambda support for languages other than NodeJS. Also, a lot of features are in beta stage, meaning they are quite new.

Overall: Used this to train machine learning models.

Good but pricey.

Pros: Great cloud platform. I used the Google cloud for my photography business, and it was easy to manage and share with others.

Cons: The Google Cloud platform is fairly pricey if you are looking for a lot of storage. I opted to go with another service because I couldn't afford Google.

We use it for our team and we love it!

Pros: Google Cloud Platform allows for simple, easy cloud deployment for companies of any size. The quality and feature set is there and the interface is far simpler than AWS. Plus, Firebase integration makes it a good starting place for companies with cloud needs.

Cons: Google Cloud Platform doesn't have every feature AWS has, but it's catching up fast. Just give it time.

Easy uploads, downloads, access, and sharing.

Pros: Sharing and connectivity from anywhere, letting others access the files with just a click, letting others work with you online.

Cons: Operability between other tools like Google Photos that seems to usually say "coming soon" and I have to access separately.
