Pros
"The most valuable features are the ease and accessibility of information.""The performance is good.""There is a free-to-use version. This is the version I use.""The solution operates in the background and it is attached to my Gmail account. When I download files to my phone, such as pictures, they automatically go to Google Cloud Storage.""Google Cloud Storage is fast, and it's scalable.""Google Cloud Storage performs well and it's easy to use.""Some of the most valuable features are how convenient and easy to use this solution is. It's very user-friendly and meets all my requirements.""The most valuable feature of Google Cloud Storage is the filter option. You can search with some artificial intelligence kinds of features. For example, if I search for a beach, it'll show me all the beach-related pictures, which I took five or ten years before. So this is a cool feature that I've seen. They give as many features as they can to make it better, so I'm happy with this solution."

Cons
"Could be improved from a storage perspective and a cost perspective.""It would be helpful to offer more packages to increase the storage.""While the solution seems to be secure, I worry that, with the cloud, there is a chance of hacking. It would be ideal if they could be more transparent about the processes they go through to keep our data secure in the cloud and on their systems.""The solution should have two factor authentication.""The solution should offer more free storage.""I would like to see better pricing.""The storage could be improved to manage it a bit better. Google Cloud Storage could be more secure, but the security features are okay.""In the next release, if improvements are made to the GPU instances for machine learning, for example, it would be helpful."
