Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform?
It was announced at the Google Cloud Summit 2018 that “Google’s cloud services saw a 330 percent increase in the number of user organizations”
More and more companies are migrating to the cloud daily to help create software applications to help manage data and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is predicted to break $159 Billion in market value by 2020. As a result of such rapid growth my focused will be solely GCP and of course, women in tech so keep an eye out for my next blog and meet-up (https://www.meetup.com/AHODevOps/).
Over the past few months I’ve been having conversation with professionals within the industry about GCP and I can now summarise what I have learned.
There are 4 basic options for creating applications on Googles infrastructure:
- Google Compute Engine
- Google App Engine
- Google Kubernetes Engine
- Google Cloud Function
So how do you get started with your first project?
In order to get started with your first project all you need to do is follow a few simple steps;
- Sign up with a Gmail account.
- Agree to the terms of service.
- Sign up for the free trial (one year of free membership and $300 credit toward your account).
- Enter your credit card information.
You will then be directed to a tutorial that will get you familiar with the platform instantly.
As summed up by DevOps.com – “With the Google Cloud Platform, you have many options, from building atop an infrastructure, a platform or building and managing containerised applications. What you choose to employ is completely up to you”
Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to meet me and looking forward to catching up in the new year and expanding my knowledge. If anyone is interested in discussing GCP drop me a message so we can schedule a call.
