When evaluating public and private cloud, there is no comparison. With a public cloud deployment (on Google Cloud Platform specifically), you unlock the full value of cloud and gain massive savings:
Elastic compute and auto-scaling of database resources means you no longer need to pre-purchase and plan for compute and database resources for 20-40% above peak capacity. You can provision for average capacity, scale up or down as needed, and adapt to dynamic business needs.
Google Cloud Spanner is an enterprise-grade, globally-distributed, high-availability, strongly consistent database built specifically to combine the benefits of a relational database structure with non-relational horizontal scale. This Google battle-tested database has the unique ability to automatically scale and synchronize reads and writes across unlimited nodes with low latency and strong consistency through the use of Google TrueTime API. Bottomline, you get 10x the speed and scale at 1/10th the cost of Oracle.*
