Cons
"There are issues with stability.""If there were more documentation and training, it would be very helpful in explaining the underlying processes.""My only concern is that a number of the offerings are built on their own proprietary technologies which means means that, with respect to the offerings in Google Cloud, it's difficult to have a path to migrate to other cloud providers.""Uploading documents could be simplified.""Workload management could be better. Their pricing could also be more flexible.""Monitoring and usage reporting could be improved.""They need to improve the costing for predictive analytics, which is mainly related to the tools that come with AI. They also need to improve the BigQuery cost optimization and the visualization.""I feel that the Google product is incomplete with regard to internal communications. It is an area that needs some improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Google cloud is less expensive than other comparable solutions."
  • "The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly. There's no scaling, so if you go with the VM, you pay 2500 Rand. When you add another VM, it's another 2500 Rand even though you don't use the whole thing. With Google, you can go up as incrementally as you need to, even if it's just 30 Rand."
  • "The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors."
  • "The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use."
  • "It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model."
  • "I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite"
  • "It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage."
