Google Cloud provides way more hosted services that do protect from devops. App Engine is fantastic (though it can be pricy). Similarly BigQuery "just works" vs. Redshift's need to choose instance sizes and scaling policies. Nearline is zero effort vs. Glacier's need to issue restore requests. (and Google seems to have a better container story too) Also GCS has multi-region buckets (and I believe GCP auto-migrates VMs too). You can do multi-host shared FS more easily, etc.
