Trying to work out comparative costs between AWS, Azure and GCP file storage will require a data scientist/spreadsheet warrior type
I never went for dual class. Is a L9 cleric enough?
Google has opened a beta programme offering managed file storage for apps running in its cloud platform. Instead of users provisioning their own storage and providing/obtaining file interface software for their apps, they can now directly mount Cloud Filestore volumes on GCP Compute Engine VMs. The Filestore is also integrated …
Two words: the first is "bull", and the second sounds like "bit".
If someone makes this claim like that, then it *must* be false. If this is a claim for data availability (not durability) then that's 3 nanoseconds of outage per year.
Besides, this is a Microsoft cloud service. In one year you'll have at least one major half-day outage, and a bunch of more minor regionalised ones.
Come on, Register! Read more carefully next time, please!
The "ridiculously" high numbers refer to DURABILITY, not availability (i.e. the probability, that the data gets LOST, not the probability that you temporarily can't access it). Quite attainable with modern storage systems... Guaranteed AVAILABILITY, according to the links you provided, is 3-4 nines, which is in line with what you would expect from a cloud service...
