At Push Interactions most of our projects that we build from scratch make use of Google Cloud for the server backend. We want to discuss some of the benefits of Google Cloud verses for example hosting a server yourself.
Probably the most important factor why we choose Google Cloud is that it can scale as you need. It does require extra work on our part but our projects can scale into the millions of users when built. Many services would fall over when reaching millions of users or even hundreds of thousands of users. Google Cloud offers businesses the flexibility to scale up or down their resources as per their business needs. With Google Cloud, your product can quickly adjust the IT resources to meet fluctuating demands without any downtime.
Second most important consideration in using Google Cloud is reliability. Google Cloud has incredible uptime and it uses the same underlying infrastructure that Google uses to host their own websites. Meaning as long as Google is up you can effectively expect your project to be up and running as well. These systems are watched 24/7 by Google Engineers to make sure they don’t go down.
Google Cloud computing eliminates the need for businesses to invest in expensive hardware, software, and IT infrastructure. Not to mention monitoring. By moving to the Google Cloud, businesses can significantly reduce their IT expenses and allocate resources to other areas of their business.
Google Cloud offers businesses a high level of security, which is often superior to traditional computing methods. Google Cloud service providers invest heavily in security infrastructure, such as firewalls, intrusion detection, and prevention systems, to ensure that their clients’ data is secure.
Google Cloud computing offers businesses the ability to recover from disasters quickly. Google Cloud service providers have redundant systems and data centers that can quickly take over in the event of a disaster, minimizing downtime and ensuring business continuity.
