Google Compute Engine vs HP Cloud Compute: What are the differences?

Google Compute Engine: Run large-scale workloads on virtual machines hosted on Google's infrastructure. Google Compute Engine is a service that provides virtual machines that run on Google infrastructure. Google Compute Engine offers scale, performance, and value that allows you to easily launch large compute clusters on Google's infrastructure. There are no upfront investments and you can run up to thousands of virtual CPUs on a system that has been designed from the ground up to be fast, and to offer strong consistency of performance; HP Cloud Compute: Deploy Scalable Virtual Servers on Demand. Now backed by an industry-leading Service Level Agreement, HP Cloud Compute delivers reliable computing resources to handle your production workloads. Configure and scale your capacity in an open cloud environment. With HP Cloud Compute, you gain control over your workloads while only paying for the resources you actually use.

Google Compute Engine and HP Cloud Compute can be primarily classified as "Cloud Hosting" tools.

Some of the features offered by Google Compute Engine are:

  • High-performance virtual machines- Compute Engine’s Linux VMs are consistently performant, scalable, highly secure and reliable. Supported distros include Debian and CentOS. You can choose from micro-VMs to large instances.
  • Powered by Google’s global network- Create large compute clusters that benefit from strong and consistent cross-machine bandwidth. Connect to machines in other data centers and to other Google services using Google’s private global fiber network.
  • (Really) Pay for what you use- Google bills in minute-level increments (with a 10-minute minimum charge), so you don’t pay for unused computing time.

On the other hand, HP Cloud Compute provides the following key features:

  • Open. Avoid vendor lock-in by using open source-based architecture and standards-based APIs.
  • Control. You have control of your instances and app development. Use root-level access to deploy applications, install required packages, and customize default security groups.
  • Reliable. Performance and reliability are backed by HP’s Service Level Agreement with at least 99.95% monthly availability.

          • I use Google Compute Engine instances as flexible, reproducible infrastructure that scale with my data science tasks.

          • Between Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services, I chose Google Cloud for its intuitive UI. SSH within the browser is very convenient.
