Editor disclaimer[edit]

Disclaimer: I am a Google Developer Expert for the Cloud Platform. That means that I have a lot of experience with the platform, but I don't work for Google and I have not been paid to write this. NachoColoma (talk) 20:14, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

could all do with fleshing out[edit]

This entry seems somewhat dry and pointless. Is GCP not competing with the likes of AWS and Azure? Better explanation of services offered, the infrastructure, datacentre locations and to whom the services are aimed at would be useful. If the cloud is the future of IT then this could all do with fleshing out. Cloud computing is probably Internet v3.0 and probably the biggest disruption to the Information Technology industry as anything gone before. Why isn't this article a hotbed of debate? Have people not started losing their jobs yet? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:51, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

I agree comparing this article to those for Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services it looks pretty sparse. I'll try and contribute some stuff. Still consider myself pretty new to wikipedia so any pointers/guidance on how to go about improving this article would be welcome. Swoophle (talk) 16:23, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Some proposed changes[edit]

Some suggestions with sources:[edit]

Hello, I am an employee of Google Cloud Platform and would like to help update the Wikipedia entry for the company. I've suggested some content here and would like to work with you on to ensure I am updating them properly and according to Wikipedia guidelines. I look forward to working with you.

Hi! Thank you for disclosing the conflict of interest in the talk page. I am not an employee, and I will review your proposed edit from a non-conflict of interest perspective. You've written quite a lot (which is good, don't get me wrong!), but reviewing it won't be done within 5 minutes. I'll get started on reviewing it hopefully later today or later this week. I'd just like to say one thing, though, and that is that I will most likely be changing some stuff in the process. That is mostly because editors with a conflict of interest are often tempted to add non-neutral language, use improper sources, or otherwise show signs of their "bias" even without intention. So when I have time, I'll be reviewing the proposed edit, and making changes based on Wikipedia's guidelines and rules. Thanks for trying to contribute! :) LocalNet (talk) 06:19, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Hi again @Sudhirsharma26: I have now reviewed your edit. First of all, thank you for your interest in contributing to Wikipedia! However, after reviewing what you've written, it comes to my attention that too little of the information has sources. The majority of the links are to other Wikipedia articles. As an example, many of the History items do not feature references to secondary, reliable sources, and the same is true for the "Certifications and Training" and "Usage" sections. The "Compute", "Storage and Databases", "Big Data", "Machine Learning", "Networking", "Identity and Security", and "Management Services" sections feature intricate details that only interest a specific audience. So, I apologize, but at this time, I won't change the page. LocalNet (talk) 09:57, 17 March 2017 (UTC)


At present, this page doesn't have a great deal of information regarding individual components of GCP. As such, the Nomulus section seemed a bit out of place, so I moved it to its own article Swoophle (talk) 14:51, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Merger discussion[edit]

Google Storage itself is a service within the Google Cloud Platform, and Google Storage itself does not have enough reliable sources to establish notability. Hence I propose merging it into this article, or otherwise Google Storage be nominated for deletion. Emphrase - 💬 / 📝 07:00, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Agree with merge. I think it would make more sense for this to be a section in the Google Cloud Platform article, with a search for it redirecting to Google Cloud Platform. --Matt0401 (talk) 08:02, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep it. Not merge. Google Storage as other cloud service storage service are complex and as other services is adding new features frequently, see example of: Amazon S3. Just if needed should be added more reliable sources. Tech201805 (talk) 16:36, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
