Google Cloud Platform

The Google Cloud Platform boasts powerful tools and infrastructure that help companies create fast, reliable and secure apps to power business processes.

What Is Google Cloud Platform?

Google Cloud Platform is a set of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses for its end-user products, such as Google Search and YouTube. Available to Australia since June 2017, it includes several services:

  • Computing engines such as Google Compute Engine and App Engine
  • Storage Platforms such as Cloud Storage and Cloud Datastore
  • Networking platforms such as the Cloud Virtual Network
  • Big Data tools such as Cloud Dataflow

Google will make more services available to Australia and New Zealand on an ongoing basis.

Why Use Google Cloud Platform?

Google Cloud Platform offers services that are similar to Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. However, there are a couple of major considerations when comparing these three platforms. For example, being on servers that power Google’s end-user products, the Google Cloud network is blazing fast. Furthermore, it is a great solution for anyone who wants to develop applications based on machine learning or that apply to the Internet of Things (IoT).

Data & Analytics

Google’s big data services and machine learning applications are widely available on the platform. They can help you find answers faster, and build better products and applications.

Serverless Computing

From prototyping to launching large scale applications, develop cloud solutions without worrying about capacity, performance or reliability.

Pricing Model

Google’s pricing works on a pay-as-you-go, much like its competitors. However, the services are billed per second, and a variety of sustained & committed discounts can apply, saving up to 60% compared to other providers.

Speed

Google Cloud Platform uses the infrastructure that powers Google’s widely-used products such as Google Search, Gmail and Youtube. This means the Platform is blazing fast. Furthermore 700+ experts in security help protect the infrastructure on a daily basis.

Scalability

Because Google’s built-in load balancer is used for Google’s end-user apps such as Maps and Gmail. Its autoscaling capabilities enable apps to handle extreme spikes in traffic. This makes Google Cloud Services extremely scalable.

Security

Google-powered cloud applications take advantage of Google’s security model. Over 15 years of experience providing security to Google’s applications means both your users and data are safe.
