Common use cases
Integrated repository for analytics and machine learning
The highest level of availability and performance within a single region is ideal for compute, analytics, and ML workloads in a particular region. Cloud Storage is also strongly consistent, giving you confidence and accuracy in analytics workloads.
Media content storage and delivery
Geo-redundant storage with the highest level of availability and performance is ideal for low-latency, high-QPS content serving to users distributed across geographic regions. Cloud Storage provides the availability and throughput needed to stream audio or video directly to apps or websites.
Backups and archives
Cloud Storage provides fast, low-cost, highly durable storage for data accessed less than once a month. Perfect for reducing the cost of backups and archives while still retaining immediate access. Backup data in Cloud Storage can be used for more than just recovery because all storage classes have ms latency and are accessed through a single API.
Pricing for Cloud Storage is based on what you use, including the amount of data you store, the duration for which you store it, the number of operations you perform on your data, and the network resources used when moving or accessing your data. For “cold” storage classes meant to store long-term, infrequently accessed data, there are also charges for retrieving data and early deletion of data.View pricing details
