Google Cloud Platform: Why It Will Make a Difference to Your Business

The Google Cloud Platform is basically a public cloud-based engine, a service provided to customers based on information using service components.

With the public cloud, you can use its resources to deliver applications that you create and reach a wider customer base. Although Google offers virtual hosting services that are similar and compete with Amazon Web Services, its core service model is based on the development and delivery of more sophisticated, packaging applications.

The GCP strategy to compete in price is to offer discounts for long-term use, personal use, and special use. At present, GCP’s main primary users appear to be companies – small, medium, or large – that are in harmony with modern application models and need more cost-effective and efficient ways to use them.

What is Google Cloud Platform used for ?

Google Cloud Platform is a provider of computing resources for deploying and running applications on the web. It's expertise is giving individuals and businesses space to build and run the software, and he uses networks to connect with users of that software. Think of tens of thousands of websites running “hyper-scale” data center networks (very large but also very shared ) and you get the basic idea.

When you launch a website, application, or service on the Google cloud platform (GCP), Google tracks all the resources you use, especially usage, data storage, database requirements, and network connectivity, rather than renting a server or DNS address for up to one month (which you will do with a regular website provider), you pay for each of these resources per second (competitor fees per minute) with a discount that applies when your service is widely used by your customers on the network.

Google Cloud Platform Products and Services

Abstract cloud services are difficult to understand. To help you understand Google’s cloud platform, here are the main services that GCP operates:

  • Google Compute Engine (GCE) competes directly with services that put Amazon Web Services on the map: hosting virtual machines (VMs, servers that fully exist as software).
  • Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE, formerly Google Container Engine) is a platform for more modern container application forms (often referred to as “Docker containers”), designed to be placed on cloud platforms.
  • Google App Engine provides software developers with tools and languages like Python, PHP, and now even Microsoft .NET languages to build and use web applications directly in the Google Cloud. This is different from building applications locally and using them remotely in the cloud. This is “cloud” development: building, deploying, and developing applications remotely.
  • Google Cloud Storage is an object of the GCP data warehouse. This means that it accepts any amount of data and presents that data to the user in the most useful way – such as files, databases, data streams, irregular data lists or as multimedia
  • Nearline is a way to use Google Cloud Storage to archive and archive data. This is the way you don’t need to consider a database and only one user can access it, usually not more than once a month. Google calls this model “cold store” and adjusts its pricing model to take into account this low utilization rate and makes Nearline more attractive for purposes such as system backup.
  • Anthos, announced in April last year, is a GCP system for managing and managing applications that can focus on Google but can use AWS or Azure resources (“multi-cloud services”). Imagine an application whose base code is hosted by Google, but which performs AI functions from AWS and stores its logs in the Azure object-store.
  • BigQuery is a data storage system with Google Cloud Storage that was developed for very large amounts of data and allows SQL queries to run in multiple databases with different structural levels. Instead of conventional-based, index-oriented records from relational SQL databases, BigQuery uses a column storage system in which data record components are stacked on top of one another and streamed to parallel storage systems. Such organizations prove useful in analytic applications that collect comprehensive statistics for simple and often shared relationships between data items.
  • Cloud Bigtable (formerly BigTable) is a highly distributed data system that organizes related data in a multidimensional number of key/value pairs, based on Google’s extensive storage system, which is made for your own use when storing search indexes. Such an amount is easier to maintain than a very large index for a colossal relational database with multiple tables whose records must be linked at the time of the request.
  • Cloud SQL (not ready for general use) hosts more traditional relational database tables and indexes using extended GCE instances to meet database performance requirements.
  • Cloud translation, text-to-speech, and speech-to-text, as the name suggests, take advantage of Google’s existing capabilities to manage spoken and written languages ​​for use in special applications.
  • Apigee is a modeling system for making and managing APIs – service calls to server-based functions that use the web as a communication tool. Apigee users can model, test, and implement mechanisms so that their existing web applications can be identified using the API, and monitor how web users use these calls for their own use.
  • Istio is an interesting type of “phonebook” for modern and scalable applications that is distributed as separate components, called micro user services. Conventional and continuous use of knowing where all its functions are; Applications based on microservices must be informed through the service network. Istio was originally developed as a service network through an open-source partnership between Google, IBM, and the Lyft Driving Sharing Service.
  • Cloud Pub / Sub is a mechanism that replaces the message queues used by average software in the era of client/server applications before. For applications that are designed to work together without explicitly being linked (“asynchronous”), Pub / Subfunctions as a kind of post office event, so the application can ask other people to notify their development or request it.
  • Cloud AutoML is a set of services that allows applications to use machine learning to recognize patterns that can be seen in large amounts of data and use these patterns in programs.
  • Cloud Run is a service that was recently announced that allows software developers to use and deploy their applications on the Google cloud using what is called the serverless model. Programs are created and run locally hosted instead of in the cloud

Key benefits of Google Cloud Platform

  1. Construction with open and flexible technology: Our open-source approach focuses on flexibility. This allows you to build on existing technology investments in the way that best suits your business.
  2. Scale with reliability and trust: Google Cloud sets reliability standards with 99.95% availability and no planned downtime
  3. Speed up innovation: Our user-friendly platform has smart analytics and artificial intelligence, making this technology more accessible and easier to use in your business.
  4. Reduce risk with first-class security: Google Cloud is designed to be protected by a fully private physical network. This ensures that your data spend the least amount of time on the public Internet, where cyberattacks hide.
