    Product(s): Google Cloud Platform

    Google Cloud eases adoption for small shops with great pricing and a simple path to cloud

    Overall Comment

    The price is fantastic for self service. The elasticity of the service and the ease of scaling up made the decision simple.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Try your workload as early as possible. Plan for scaleout early.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The documentation and console are first rate. The API access for management makes automation a breeze.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Certain features (like project management) are not yet fully covered by the APIs in the SDK.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Native filesystem interface to the object Storage service would be fantastic.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Nothing, the trial credits made the proof of concept easy and rollout was eventless.
