Google Cloud Platform 美西機房

Google Cloud 在七月的時候開放了美西機房:「Introducing Cloud Natural Language API, Speech API open beta and our West Coast region expansion」,而且東京機房也快開了:

And as we announced in March, Tokyo will be coming online later this year and we will announce more than 10 additional regions in 2017.

看到「Why we moved from Amazon Web Services to Google Cloud Platform?」的時候去找資料才發現的。這篇讓我重新算了一次成本,如果不計算 Bandwidth Cost 的話,GCE 整體的 f1-micro 記憶體 + 20GB 比 DigitalOcean 多 (不過 DO 給的是 SSD 就是了),而且還比較便宜啊...

不過如果把頻寬成本算進去,Internet Egress (i.e. Outbound bandwidth) 一定要走 Google Network,這點就比較傷了... 有美西機房後,看起來可以開始考慮用看看就是了 :o
