GCP stands for Google Cloud Platform

Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offered by Google, 

It is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as

  • Google Search
  • Gmail
  • file storage
  • YouTube

Alongside a set of management tools, it provides a series of modular cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics and machine learning.[4] Registration requires a credit card or bank account details.

  • enables IT to run virtual machines without having to invest in or manage this computing infrastructure themselves. Often IT will opt for an IaaS solution when the workload is temporary, experimental, or subject to unexpected changes (e.g. sandbox projects).


  • is the next step, building on the IaaS model. Customers opt for all of the benefits of IaaS, plus they get underlying infrastructure – like operating systems and middleware. Their vendor hosts and manages all of these elements.


  • goes one more step – everything is available via the web: the provider hosts, manages, and delivers the entire infrastructure including applications. Users simply log in to access the resources the specific solution delivers, e.g. backup and recovery tools.
