Use a powerful, simple and cost effective object storage service. With global edge-caching, your users have fast access to your app’s data from any location.
Google Cloud Storage offers developers and IT organizations durable and highly available object storage. Google created three simple product options to help you improve the performance of your applications while keeping your costs low. These three product options use the same API, providing you with a simple and consistent method of access.
Standard Storage provides the highest level of durability, availability and performance of all Google Cloud Storage services. It’s specifically designed for use cases requiring low latency and frequent data access, such as website content distribution and video streaming. Standard storage is all about performance.
Durable Reduced Availability Storage
Durable Reduced Availability (DRA) Storage has lower cost and lower availability than Standard Storage but is designed to have the same durability and performance as Standard Storage.
Cloud Storage Nearline
Google Cloud Storage Nearline is a low-cost, highly durable storage service for data archiving, online backup, and disaster recovery. Unlike other cloud or on-premises archive and backup offerings, you don’t have to wait hours or days to retrieve or access your data.
Choose a storage service that fits the nature of your data, whether it’s Standard Storage, Durable Reduced Availability (DRA) Storage or Cloud Storage Nearline. Like other Cloud Platform services, you just pay for what you use.
With Google Cloud Storage you can access your data with simple APIs that offer advanced features. Object versioning, parallel uploads and CRC-based integrity checking give you the ability to create robust, sophisticated applications. You can access the API using XML or JSON directly, or use libraries for several popular programming languages. With GCS Fuse, you can work with your data as a local file system that supports simple read/write use cases and most POSIX semantics.
Your data is protected through redundant storage at multiple physical locations. OAuth and granular access controls form stronger, configurable security.
Google Cloud Storage allows world-wide storage and retrieval of any amount of data and at any time. It provides a simple programming interface which enables developers to take advantage of Google's own reliable and fast networking infrastructure to perform data operations in a simple and cost effective manner.
Competitive and flexible pricing
You can serve static objects directly from Cloud Storage or use it as a data store for other Google products. Access your storage from BigQuery, App Engine, or other Cloud Platform services. Your data is accessible via an authenticated RESTful API that provides speed, flexibility, and OAuth-backed security.
