Google Cloud Customer Review

5/5 Stars

Operational and/or business impact that Google Cloud has had on our Startup:

We reduced the delivery time with the pipeline built with Cloud Build, Container Registry, and deploying to Compute Engines, Functions and Run. Our server costs would be SO MUCH higher if we didn’t use Cloud Run and Functions, which certainly reduces about 80% of our server costs (Could be more if we had a fixed IP on both solutions). BigQuery made it possible to migrate a really huge dataset from Postgres, with the PostGIS capabilities of BigQuery, that made things cheaper and faster.
