Helpful cloud storage

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I am working from several device like my desktop, tablet and from my smartphone. Sharing my files across my device can be done with this cloud storage. I also use it as my main backup space for recovery file and data that i linked it with my WhatsApp application.

Pros:

Saving my files and documents either for personal use or business use is very easy using this software. Sending my files to other user is really secure, as only the user that i has granted permission can have access to the files and i can limit if they can only read the files, or can edit the files.

Cons:

This cloud storage only can scanning for viruses for a files or documents that are less than 100 MB. If the files is more than 100MB, it will not scan it and increasing the chances that user will open files that are infected with viruses. I hope they can improve the scanning system and let it scan a larger files.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Versatile Storage

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Data from other systems can be used as a data source for aggregation with BigQuery. Since the direct connection to the database is NG in terms of security, you can use the data via GCS. In addition, PDF files can also be downloaded by URL, so they can be obtained via a hyperlink in the browser. It is very convenient to be able to share files while ensuring security, as it is possible to manage permissions when acquiring them.

Pros:

You can easily obtain and manage repository and file information from the command line. You can select a storage type according to the frequency of resource access. You can choose from a wide range of regions

Cons:

Because there are so many functions, it takes time to get used to using it. (e.g., multi-region configuration, storage type configuration, etc.). It would be nice if there was an operation to easily concatenate files in GCS with the gsutil tool.

Thank you for keeping on backing up my data

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Except for the fact that I've got to pay, I love Google Cloud Storage very much.

Pros:

I love that Google Cloud Storage helps me in backing up my data, so in case I lost my device or if it is broken then I can always find my data there.

Cons:

I have to pay for it. I don't earn that much, so I feel that paying in dollars is way to luxurious for me.

Its ok but not for me

2.0 last month New

Pros:

I liked how there is alot of storage space and paying for extra space is cheap.

Cons:

I dont like the fact that Google Cloud took money out of my paypal account without my consent. Also getting ahold of customer service about the problem is a nightmare.
