Google Cloud - The future of cloud computing
The Google Cloud is a cloud computing platform developed by Google. It is one of the leading cloud platforms on the market and is used by companies of all sizes and in all industries. Google itself uses the cloud infrastructure to scale its most popular products such as YouTube, Google Search or Google Analytics easily, securely and reliably.
What features does the Google Cloud offer?
The Google Cloud offers a wide range of services and features to help businesses and organizations run their digital products around the world. Some of the most important services include:
Cloud Engine is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution for enterprises to run and flexibly scale virtual machines in the cloud. Companies retain control over the infrastructure.
App Engine is a complete Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution for enterprises, enabling them to run their applications in a scalable environment without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure.
Google Cloud Run is a serverless computing platform that enables developers to quickly and easily deploy and run container applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

And many more functions..
to develop modern applications.
Pay as you go
The "pay as you go" model of the Google Cloud is a flexible billing model in which users only pay for the resources they actually use. Billing is on an hourly basis, with all users having control over all their costs at all times.
Unlike other models, there is no need to reserve or pay for a certain number of resources in advance, but only for the resources that are actually used. This also allows resources to be scaled up or down at any time to respond to changing requirements.
Advantages and disadvantages of the Google Cloud
The Google Cloud offers a wide range of cloud-based services and solutions to help customers manage and run their applications and workloads in the cloud. However, there are advantages and disadvantages that customers should consider when making a decision.
