Google Cloud Platform

Updated and expanded: Google Cloud Platform for AWS Professionals

Last year, we published a guide for our customers who had familiarity and expertise with AWS but wanted to learn how it compares to Google Cloud Platform. The guide had a really positive reception, helping customers understand things like how Cloud Platform delivers Infrastructure as a Service with Google Compute Engine and how our VPN works.

Today, we're happy to announce a major expansion to the Cloud Platform for AWS Professionals guide, with new sections covering Big Data services, Storage services and Containers as a Service (Google Container Engine).

As we said last year, this guide is a work-in-progress. We have some ideas about what topics we’d like to tackle next (services like Databases and Development tools) but we’d also love to hear what you think we should cover.

We hope you find this information useful and makes learning about Cloud Platform enjoyable. Please tell us what you think, and be sure to sign up for a free trial!
