Google Cloud Platform, offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search and YouTube. Alongside a set of management tools, it provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics and machine learning.
Google Cloud Hosting Advantages:
Now let’s take a look at some of the top advantages to using Google Cloud Hosting and why we think it is currently the best solution on the market as it pertains to pricing, performance, stability, scalability, backups, and security.
1) Better Pricing Than Competitors
2) Private Global Fiber Network
3)Live Migration of Virtual Machines
4) Improved Performance
5) State of the Art Security
6) Dedication to Continued Expansion
7) Redundant Backups
1. Better Pricing Than Competitors
Google bills in minute-level increments (with a 10-minute minimum charge), so you only pay for the compute time you use. And a big bonus is that they give you discounted prices for long-running workloads with no up-front commitment required. Use the VMs for a month and you get a discount, as simple as that.
2. Private Global Fiber Network
Google Cloud network is one of the biggest network in the world. Will Shulman, co-founder of MongoLab, talked about the network in a panel at Google I/O saying: “It is blazing fast. The other thing – it has a private distributed backbone between all the data centers. You are talking over Google’s backbone, not over the Internet.”
3. Live Migration of Virtual Machines
Another huge advantage for Google Cloud Hosting. Neither AWS, Azure, or smaller providers like Digital Ocean offer this functionality. So this is a very important differentiator for Google Cloud compared to other cloud providers. As a WordPress hosting provider this means we are basically always up with our VMs, with no noticeable degradation in performance when they are live migrating VMs between host machines.
Benefits of live migrations allows for the engineers at Google to better address issues such as patching, repairing, and updating the software and hardware, without the need for you to worry about machine reboots.
4. Improved Performance
Kinsta was just recently named top tier once again in Review Signal’s annual 2016 WordPress hosting performance benchmarks. And a lot of this is thanks to Google Cloud Platform. We were the first managed WordPress host to exclusively utilize Google Cloud and are the only enterprise level host using them.
5. State of the Art Security
Another big advantage is security. Choosing Google Cloud Platform means you get the benefit of a security model that has been built upon over the course of 15 years, and currently secures products and services like Gmail, Search, etc. Google currently employs more than 500 full-time security professionals.
As you can see, when it comes to Google Cloud Hosting and utilizing Google Cloud Platform, there are a lot of advantages. Not only is it cheaper, but you also benefit from one of the largest networks in the world! This means less latency and more accurate compute prices as data is able to be processed in less time.Live migration of virtual machines is currently a unique and very important differentiator when it comes to comparing other cloud hosting providers. Top it off with state of the art security and performance that is able to handle hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections and you have a platform that can set your business up for long-term success.
