What is Google Cloud Storage?

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 Rackspace Cloud Files?

Cloud Files, powered by OpenStack®, provides an easy to use online storage for files and media which can be delivered globally at blazing speeds over Akamai's content delivery network (CDN).

        What are some alternatives to Google Cloud Storage, Rackspace Cloud Files, and RunAbove?
        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.
        Firebase
        Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
        Amazon Glacier
        In order to keep costs low, Amazon Glacier is optimized for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of several hours are suitable. With Amazon Glacier, customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month, a significant savings compared to on-premises solutions.
        Amazon S3
        Amazon Simple Storage Service provides a fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web
        DigitalOcean Spaces
        DigitalOcean Spaces are designed to make it easy and cost effective to store and serve massive amounts of data. Spaces are ideal for storing static, unstructured data like audio, video, and images as well as large amounts of text.

        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.
