What makes Google cloud storage especially good?

The scalability and reliability of Google Cloud Storage are notable, but it's the integration with other Google Cloud services that sets it apart. Being able to leverage any and all of Google's other cloud tools, online services and advanced features along with your storage solution is a powerful force multiplier for any organization, no matter how data-driven. From high availability to workflow optimization, Google Cloud Storage is a comprehensive data storage solution.

Who should take this Google cloud storage course?

IT professionals in fields related to cloud computing, data engineering, software development and infrastructure/network management would all benefit from this course, but so would non-technical professionals who simply use their organization's cloud-based data storage or make financial decisions about it. If any part of your job includes data management, backup and recovery, app development, web development, or digital project management, learning to use Google Cloud's storage solutions is a solid investment.
