What is Google Cloud, its advantages and why you have to adopt it

Google Cloud Platform is a cloud computing platform by Google that offers hosting on the same supporting infrastructure that Google uses internally for end-user products like Google Search and YouTube. Cloud Platform provides developer products to build a range of programs from simple websites to complex applications.Advantages of Google Cloud

 

  1. Higher Productivity is gained through Quick Access to Innovation: Google’s systems can distribute updates efficiently and deliver functionality on a weekly basis or even faster.
  2. Less Disruption is Caused When Users Adopt New Functionality: Rather than large disruptive batches of change, Google delivers manageable improvements in a continuous stream.
  3. Employees Can Work From Anywhere: They can gain full access to information across devices from anywhere in the world through web based apps powered by Google cloud.
  4. Google Cloud Allows Quick Collaboration: Many users can contribute to and access projects at the same time as data is stored on the cloud instead of their computers.
  5. Customers are protected by Google’s Investments in Security: They are benefited by the process-based and physical security investments made by Google. Google hires the leading security experts in the world.
  6. Less Data has to be stored on Vulnerable Devices: Minimal data is stored on computers that may get compromised, after a user stops using web based apps on the cloud.
  7. Customers get Higher Uptime and Reliability: If a data center is not available for some reason, the system immediately falls back on the secondary center without any service interruption being visible to users.
  8. Control and Flexibility Available to Users: They have control over technology and data and have ownership over their data in Google apps. If they decide not to use the service any more, they can get their data out of Google cloud.
  9. Google’s Economies of Scale Let Customers Spend Less: Google minimizes overheads and consolidates a small number of server configurations. It manages these through an efficient ratio of people to computer

This is Google’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Through this, Google’s infrastructure can be used to run workloads on a large scale on virtual machines. You can select a virtual computer to fit your needs and enjoy the consistence and performance of Google’s network worldwide. You have to pay only for what you use, since the billing is per minute.
Features
Security and Compliance
Easy and Fast Provisioning
Balancing of Loads
High-Performance Virtual ComputersApp Engine
This is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Gain productivity by using in-built services to develop your apps. You just have to download the software development kit (SDK) to start development work immediately and for free.
Features
  • Google Scale Deployment
  • Known Development Tools
  • Strong In-Built Services
  • Many Options for Storage
  • Code Focus
  • Popular Frameworks and Languages
Cloud SQL
This is a relational MySQL database that is fully managed and helps manage and store data. To ensure performance and availability, Google takes care of database management, patch management and replication.
Features

  • Easy to Control
  • Simpler Migration Without Lock-In
  • Robustness, Accessibility, Security
  • Pay Per Use and Package Charging
  • Standard Infrastructure
Cloud Storage
This is an object storage service that is highly available and durable. Users can quickly access data from your app from anywhere, on account of edge-caching on a global scale. Google presents a simple application programming interface (API), provides a strong service-level agreement and runs versioning to let you handle data programmatically.
Features
  • Variable Access
  • Storage of Objects with Feature-Rich API
  • Adjustable and Viable Pricing
  • Safe and Secure
Cloud Datastore
This provides a database, which is schema less, NoSQL and managed, for storage of non-relational data. SQL-like queries are supported well, in addition to transactions, and the datastore also scales as required.
Features
  • Anywhere Access of Data
  • Local Tools for Development
  • In-built Redundancy
  • ACID Transactions
  • Scaling Automatically with Users
  • Database Management
  • SQL-Like Querying and Schemaless Access
BigQuery
This is to analyze big data in the cloud. This can process datasets containing several terabytes in a few seconds and run quick SQL-like queries. This provides insights in real time and is simple and scalable to use.
Features
  • Suitable Interface
  • Economical Big Data
  • Easy Import of Data
  • Queries Executed in Background
Google also provides developer tools such as Google Plugin for Eclipse, Google Cloud SDK, Android Studio, Cloud Playground and Push-to-Deploy, along with the cloud platform.
Cloud Endpoints
Javascript, Android and iOS clients can access your code through RESTful services from your code. The frontend wiring can become easy and generation of client libraries can be generated automatically. Client key management, OAuth 2.0 support and protection against denial of service are part of in-built significant infrastructure.
Features
  • Integration of client side becomes flexible
  • Client server maintenance is low
  • App engine infrastructure can be extended
  • Several clients, single tool
Future of Google Cloud
Google’s approach and its entire strategy appears focused on the future and not the internet as it exists at present. Google seems to have placed its bet on the world having ubiquitous and low-cost internet access in the near future. This could include fast mobile broadband available globally and fiber connections in homes and offices.
Google seems to be building cloud for that kind of a world. It expects that by the time it refines its stack of apps, broadband will be available worldwide. It’s required as Google’s apps depend on internet connection and most of the data is stored on Google’s cloud servers.
However, the future of broadband may not be exactly in accordance with Google’s expectations. At many places, it is not financially viable to introduce high-speed internet access, solely on the basis of free market forces. This could remain true for a long time to come.
For Google’s vision to be realized, there will have to be greater competition in the bigger markets and more substantial private-public partnerships in smaller ones.
