21 Google Cloud Tool — Quick Start to Explain How It Works

At the moment, Google Cloud technology has more than 25 different tools. We’ve previously given you hints on how the Google Cloud ecosystem is interconnected in five system usage cheat sheets. Now we provide you with a short description in less than two minutes about the most used Google Cloud tools. More details about Google Cloud use cases here. 


1. BigQuery

Nowadays, it is becoming more and more popular to store data on a multicloud. To learn about digital storage of information online, watch the Big Query video. This technology will also help you analyze, manage and absorb large amounts of information using a direct connection or API.


2. Filestore

Filestore is a system that provides a place to store application data. You can use Filestore if you need additional or primary storage for your database or other files. Thanks to this system, you can also grant access to other users of this storage. Find out more about how Filestore works in the video below. 


3. Local SSD

One use case for a local SSD is the ability to protect your data. It’s simple – you set up the SSD, redirect it to your virtual machine where the data is stored, and all connections will be automatically secured. This method is especially useful for working with media, data and complex computational operations.


4. Persistent Disk 

A persistent disk is another tool for a safe as well as a secure way to store information. It is a physical drive that can be configured using the console and is physically located in Mumbai and Los Angeles. Learn more about persistent drive in one minute in the video below.


5. Cloud Storage

You’ve probably heard of Google Cloud Storage at least once. In the video below, you can familiarize yourself with the main advantages of cloud storage, such as four different tariffs (depending on how often you intend to use data), quick access, access from different devices, etc.


6. Anthos

Anthos is a storage management application that is distributed over a multicloud. It works in the following way: you connect the Anthos app, sync with your clouds, and voilà you have a great tool to move, manage and protect your data across different cloud storages.


7. Google Kubernetes Engine

Need to improve the productivity of your IT developers? Or do you need a tool to deploy, manage and scale containerized applications? Learn how Google Kubernetes Engine simplifies the platform in this video.


8. Compute Engine

If you are still just thinking about moving your virtual machine workloads to the cloud, then the Compute Engine video is just for you. Learn how to easily and painlessly migrate your work to the cloud storage.


9. Cloud Run

Cloud Run is a versatile tool for creating apps in just a couple of clicks. Customize your app in any language you like using a serverless platform. Take a moment to find out how to make your developers’ job easier.


10. App Engine

App Engine allows you to quickly and efficiently write code for applications in any of the selected languages. This serverless application framework will also help you run custom containers with the structure of your choice, and deploy and run code in the cloud.


11. Cloud Functions

Introducing cloud-based features to help you run your code with zero control. The main advantage is pay as you use these services. Find out more about the benefits of cloud-based features and how much it can make your life easier.
