Why iKala choose Google Cloud Platform

iKala’s live streaming service was built in IDC. After using AWS about two years, we decided to move all our services to GCP Taiwan data center in 2014. After choosing GCP, there are many advantages in terms of performance and cost.

  • Performance: The connection of Google is two times as fast as AWS.
  • Cost: Due to GCP Sustained-use Discount and Committed-use-discount, we saved at least 30% after migrating from AWS to GCP.
  • The streaming service of iKala has been containerized and managed by Kubernetes since 2016. It was a new milestone in IT architecture and DevOps.
