Google Cloud Storage vs OpenEBS: What are the differences?
What is Google Cloud Storage? Durable and highly available object storage service. Google Cloud Storage allows world-wide storing and retrieval of any amount of data and at any time. It provides a simple programming interface which enables developers to take advantage of Google's own reliable and fast networking infrastructure to perform data operations in a secure and cost effective manner. If expansion needs arise, developers can benefit from the scalability provided by Google's infrastructure.
What is OpenEBS? Cloud native storage for containerized workloads. OpenEBS allows you to treat your persistent workload containers, such as DBs on containers, just like other containers. OpenEBS itself is deployed as just another container on your host.
Google Cloud Storage and OpenEBS can be categorized as "Cloud Storage" tools.
Some of the features offered by Google Cloud Storage are:
- High Capacity and Scalability
- Strong Data Consistency
- Google Developers Console Projects
On the other hand, OpenEBS provides the following key features:
- Open source
- Block Storage
- dynamic and static PV/PVC provisioning
"Scalable" is the top reason why over 22 developers like Google Cloud Storage, while over 2 developers mention "Great support on Slack" as the leading cause for choosing OpenEBS.
OpenEBS is an open source tool with 5.73K GitHub stars and 626 GitHub forks. Here's a link to OpenEBS's open source repository on GitHub.
We choose Backblaze B2 because it makes more sense for storing static assets.
We admire Backblaze's customer service & transparency, plus, we trust them to maintain fair business practices - including not raising prices in the future.
Lower storage costs means we can keep more data for longer, and lower bandwidth means cache misses don't cost a ton.
We offer our customer HIPAA compliant storage. After analyzing the market, we decided to go with Google Storage. The Nodejs API is ok, still not ES6 and can be very confusing to use. For each new customer, we created a different bucket so they can have individual data and not have to worry about data loss. After 1000+ customers we started seeing many problems with the creation of new buckets, with saving or retrieving a new file. Many false positive: the Promise returned ok, but in reality, it failed.
That's why we switched to S3 that just works.
