5 reasons to choose Google Cloud Platform - GCP

The origins of cloud computing can be traced back to the 1990s when telecommunications companies first announced virtual personal networks in their services.

Rising energy costs and the need for expansion are driving the cloud revolution. Nowadays, Cloud Algorithm is a buzzword. The market value of Public Cloud services is $209.2 billion in 2016 and has a growth rate of approx 18% in 2017. 

The big players in the current market are: 

  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • IBM Cloud

Here are 5 reasons you should choose Google Cloud over other providers:

An attractive point in the pricing method that Google brings to customers is the Discount based on usage commitment ( Committed Use Discounts). For this policy, you can purchase “number of vCPUs and capacity with Discount offer 57% compared to normal price" if you commit to use within 1 or 3 years. And another strong point is that all virtual machines in use are offered preferential prices.

The cable line is located under the Pacific Ocean and Google is one of six members with access. The cable is connected to the entire west coast of the United States and major cities in Japan. In addition, Google also has connections to hubs in Asia. In particular, the transmission speed is always upgraded.

High speed is also a factor that affects costs and allows data to be processed in a short time. According to information from Google product manager, Amit Aggarwal, network costs have not decreased like data storage and algorithm costs, but Google's massive physical network system helps bring customers practical commercial benefits. 

Data security and safety

In the digital age, data security is extremely important, compared to the risk of data loss if a problem occurs with the physical storage system (natural disaster, catastrophe, etc.). Putting data information on the Cloud not only requires flexibility and easy access anytime, anywhere, but also must ensure data safety and security.
