cheaper cloud filestore with low performance
Cloud Filestore is a mountable NFS with good performance. It has two tiers, currently $0.30/GB/mo for super fast and $0.20/GB/mo for fast. Our use case is 100TB of 500k-10MB files that gets randomly accessed, but has a very low speed and IOPS requirement; we are paying a mere $0.04/GB/mo to host this on an old NetApp filer at Rackspace, we don't care about the speed just that it works and has reasonable access latency. It would be nice if Google had a slower tier of NFS that was cheaper and let people with large file repositories (that for whatever reason can't get on GCS yet) but low performance requirements to use your cloud based NFS solution. Currently this is the only thing preventing us from moving our whole Compute load to GCP: we can't replace our Filer for anywhere near the price in any Cloud environment. Filestore looks great functionally, but has way more performance than we need, for way more cost.
