Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is a cloud computing service by Google that offers hosting on the same supporting infrastructure that Google uses internally for end-user products like Gmail, Google Search, Maps, and YouTube.
- Google Compute Engine – IaaS service providing virtual machines similar to Amazon EC2.
- Google App Engine – PaaS service for directly hosting applications similar to AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
- BigTable – IaaS service providing map reduce services. Similar to Hadoop.
- BigQuery – IaaS service providing Columnar database. Similar to Amazon Redshift.
- Google Cloud Functions – Currently in alpha testing FaaS service allowing functions to be triggered by events without developer resource management similar to Amazon Lambda or IBM OpenWhisk.
