GCP Storage is a cloud-based object storage service that specializes in handling scalable data workloads with no performance overhead. With GCP Storage, you can integrate your data-driven apps or machine learning workflows seamlessly. The storage buckets represent a medium of storing your data in Google Cloud Storage. There is a single global namespace shared by all the buckets, where each bucket contains objects that can be accessed through their own methods.
Your Google Cloud data is stored securely in Google’s network of data centers.
No, there are some differences between Google Drive and Google Cloud Storage. With GCS, you can upload or download a file, delete it, or obtain a list or size of a given file. Google Drive, on the other hand, is only used for storing personal data. It is free up to 15 GB across all your personal services that are offered by Google.
Google Cloud Storage offers various tiers of data storage options according to your needs. The Standard feature offers optimized performance, high availability and high frequency access. The Nearline tier offers a fast and durable storage option for your data that is accessed less frequently, i.e. less than once a month. The Coldline feature is best suited for the data accessed once a quarter, while the Archive feature is the most cost-effective tier, used for storing data that is accessed only once a year.
