Google Cloud CDN vs Google Drive: What are the differences?

Developers describe Google Cloud CDN as "Low-latency, low-cost content delivery using Google's global network". Google Cloud CDN leverages Google's globally distributed edge caches to accelerate content delivery for websites and applications served out of Google Compute Engine. Cloud CDN lowers network latency, offloads origins, and reduces serving costs. Once you've set up HTTP(S) Load Balancing, simply enable Cloud CDN with a single checkbox. On the other hand, Google Drive is detailed as "Integrate your app with Google Drive". The Drive SDK gives you a group of APIs along with client libraries, language-specific examples, and documentation to help you develop apps that integrate with Drive The core functionality of Drive apps is to download and upload files in Google Drive. However, the Drive SDK provides a lot more than just storage..

Google Cloud CDN and Google Drive are primarily classified as "Content Delivery Network" and "File Storage" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Google Cloud CDN are:

  • Anycast
  • Invalidation
  • HTTP/2

On the other hand, Google Drive provides the following key features:

  • Create & collaborate.- In Google Drive, you can create new documents, spreadsheets and presentations instantly. Work together at the same time, on the same doc, and see changes as they appear.
  • Work better with the products you use everyday.- Say goodbye to bulky email attachments. Send a link from Google Drive in Gmail and everyone has the same file, same version—automatically. Your pictures in Google Drive are instantly available in Google+, so you’re never more than one click away from sharing with your circles.
  • Powerful search.- Google Drive helps you get to your files faster. Search for content by keyword and filter by file type, owner and more. Google Drive can even recognize objects in your images and text in scanned documents.
