Meet your business challenges head on with cloud computing services from Google, including data management, hybrid & multi-cloud, and AI & ML.

I began my cloud adventure with basic virtual machines (VMs) managed through Laravel Forge. Gradually, my interest in cloud computing grew, and I started exploring more advanced services. Here's a rundown of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) services I rely on daily:

  • Google Kubernetes Engine
  • Cloud Run
  • BigQuery
  • Cloud Functions
  • Cloud SQL
  • Cloud Armour
  • Google Cloud Storage

Previously, I used DigitalOcean for my hosting needs. However, I encountered some issues and found it somewhat limited for my expanding requirements. This prompted my migration to GCP, a decision that has greatly increased hosting experience. Pricing also increased. All though I choose GCP as main platform, but recently I've shifted my focus on Open Source tooling to keep projects more platform agnostic.
