The Google Cloud Platform is a suite of cloud computing services offered by Google that runs on the same infrastructure that it uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search and YouTube.
The platform offers a range of cloud services to help businesses and individuals build, manage, and scale applications, websites, and services.
These services include compute capabilities such as virtual machines, storage solutions like Google Cloud Storage, databases like Bigtable and Spanner, and large-scale machine learning frameworks like TensorFlow.
Google Cloud Platform also provides various tools to help developers create applications quickly and efficiently.
Included is an App Engine tool to build serverless applications, integrated development environments (IDEs) for managing code repositories, security options for identity management and access control, analytics solutions for monitoring app performance, as well as APIs for integrating with other Google products.
When it comes to pricing for the Google Cloud platform, there are several options available.
It can be used on a pay-as-you-go basis or customers can purchase discounted packages that cover certain usage levels over a set period of time.
In addition to these plans there are various partner programs available including enterprise-level agreements.
The Google Cloud Platform Estimator is an easy-to-use tool that allows users to quickly and accurately estimate the cost of using the platform.
By entering information about their desired usage levels, such as memory, storage, network traffic and so on, users can see estimated costs for their application over a range of timeframes.
The tool also provides estimates for additional services such as Bigtable and TensorFlow.
The estimator takes into account a number of factors when calculating the cost including region pricing, resource type pricing (CPU, RAM, disk), applicable discounts from reserved instances or sustained use discounts.
This allows customers to factor in costs associated with initial setup charges, discounts from long-term contracts or other offers that may be available.
On top of estimating costs for existing applications or services, the estimator can be used to model potential future features or services before committing to them.
Overall, the Google Cloud Platform Estimator provides a powerful and fast way for customers to understand their potential costs when utilizing Google’s cloud platform.
The tool allows users to quickly get an accurate understanding of how different usage levels will impact their bill while providing data points that factor in long-term contracts or other offers that may be available.
With this information in hand customers can confidently make decisions about their cloud investments knowing exactly what they’re going to pay ahead of time.
