Most secure drive

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: The ease of use of this platform makes it the best choice for me. It supports many data formats. For upgrades it does not require downtime. Customer support is quite good.

Pros:

It stands out for its ease of use, with intuitive configuration and management. Really easy to use. Customer service is fast and efficient. I use it on a daily basis for office and personal work. The feature set is extensive and comprises much more than a database, with seamless integration into existing workflows. Its simplicity ensures smooth business continuity. Google Backup & DR is a very good decision and investment. Set it and forget it, knowing that your data is safe.

Cons:

Limited free storage can be quickly depleted with large photos and files, forcing you to pay for more storage. I still find it invaluable.

Complex cloud management tool

3.0 last month New

Comments: Not very intuitive but features rich tool for cloud management.

Pros:

Contains lots of features for cloud management. Lots of support functionalities like spend overview, cloud monitoring, SDK libraries, CLI applications. Allows to deploy docker images for production environment.

Cons:

Very complex tool. Like other Google applications it isn't very user friendly and can be really hard to set up / configure anything. You need to read docs carefully to do nearly anything.
