If expansion needs arise, developers can benefit from the scalability provided by Google's infrastructure.

        Review ofRackspace Cloud FilesRackspace Cloud Files

        We use Rackspace Cloud Files to host static assets ( js/ css / some media ) and we're really liking it.

        tbh we use it because of the ability to serve files from Akamai CDN. You get the worlds best CDN server for a fraction of the cost.

        To conclude, it might not be as cheap as S3 , but if you care about files being served at the fastest way possible then Rackspace Cloud Files is the way to go.

        Amazon / Google... Google / Amazon ... we decided to take the plunge and go for Google Cloud services as their services seem to be a bit more thought through and structured as they have not developed so organically.

        When creating proofs of concept or small personal projects that are hosted primarily in GCP, this is the object storage service I usually pair them with.
