Google Cloud Storage

Google Cloud Storage stands out for use cases that require multi-region capabilities, thanks to its specific "multi-region" regions that are more economical than duplicating storage. This allows businesses to strategically place their data across different regions to optimize accessibility and reliability, while also managing storage costs. The ability to choose from multiple regions can lead to significant cost savings and improve data availability for geographically distributed users.
