Moving Data to Nero GCP

Putting Data in the Bucket

In the cloud, we store data in buckets. Buckets are like the folders on your laptop, you can have as many buckets inside of your project as you need, and fine-tune each bucket’s access settings to keep your data secure.

Most people will access their storage via the GCP Console.

There are two sets of command-line tools, the older gsutil and the newer gcloud.

The cost of storing your buckets of data is related to the size of the data and to how often you access the data.

By default, buckets are set to go into deeper storage the longer they are untouched. This is ideal for most use cases, but needs to be considered as part of a larger data strategy.
