What is Google Cloud Platform?

The Google Cloud Platform is a suite of multiple cloud computing resources offered by Google as a public cloud computing service. These resources are a part of Google’s own hardware infrastructure consisting of computers, servers, storage equipments like HDDs (Hard Disk Drives), SSDs, (Solid State Drives), and networking components. Many of these services are used by Google itself and run on the same infrastructure as used in many Google products such as YouTube and Google search. The platform hosts and provides numerous modular cloud services that use Google’s hardware infrastructure in a virtual environment.
