AWS vs Google Cloud:
a) AWS choose based on the number of regions
The number of regions in AWS is Twenty Two (22). A region (geographic area) is a separate area where a data center is located for use in a cloud service. The servers in each region (geographic area) provide the same service but do not interfere with each other, so if something goes wrong in one region (geographic area), the other area will continue to operate normally.
The advantage of having a large number of regions (geographic area) is that it’s easier to choose regions that are closer to the user. Need to think about which region the system is developing is intended to be used mainly by, and choose a closer region.
b) AWS for a wealth of documentation
AWS has a lot of official documents and cloud service utilization materials, and there is a lot of information in Japanese. It is a cloud service that is easy to understand and research and has a good reputation for the quality of its paid support.
c) AWS for a various range of commercial license support
AWS has been around for a longer duration, so it has wide areas of support for commercial licenses, and if using a service that requires formal commercial support, namely Oracle, It is safe to choose AWS.
d) GCP if you choose based on the virtual machine startup speed
GCP virtual machines can be started up very quickly, about Forty (40) seconds. This is overwhelmingly fast, as opposed to a typical cloud service that takes about 3 minutes to start up.
e) GCP if you want to use big data analytics
Google, a search engine organization, has great strength in data analysis. Normally, when using cloud services to perform data analysis, users need to add and tune computational resources by themselves, but with GCP, resources in Google’s data center are automatically allotted, so users don’t need to worry about computational resources.
