Why Google Cloud Storage?
A single API for all storage classes
Cloud Storage’s consistent API, latency, and speed across storage classes simplifies development integration and reduces code complexity. Implement Object Lifecycle Management to set a Time to Live (TTL) for objects, archive older version of objects, or downgrade storage classes without compromising on latency or accessibility. Set custom policies to transition data seamlessly from one storage class to the next, depending on your cost and availability needs at the time.
Designed for eleven 9’s of durability
Cloud Storage is designed for 99.999999999% durability. It stores data redundantly, with automatic checksums to ensure data integrity. Multi-region and dual-region locations allow you to store your data geo-redundantly for higher availability.
Highly scalable and performant
Cloud Storage offers unlimited object storage and individual objects can be as large as 5TB. Objects can be overwritten no more than once per second and there is no limit to read frequency. Objects larger than 5MB should be uploaded with multipart or resumable uploading. For more details, review Cloud Storage Quotas & Limits.
Strongly consistent
When a write succeeds, the latest copy of the object is guaranteed to be returned to any GET, globally. This applies to PUTs of new or overwritten objects and DELETEs.
Zero carbon emissions
By moving storage from a self-managed data center or colocation facility to GCP, the emissions directly associated with your company’s data storage will be zero.
