Last year Google introduced a BETA test for “G-Drive” (I got one still installed on the other computer) where you can upload any file format to your Gmail account then later discontinued the service and it seems it is not dead at all. WSJ via GigaOM reported that Google is ready to roll out its own cloud storage service – “Drive” or “G-Drive”.
According to the report, posted late Wednesday:
The Google service, which is expected to launch in the coming weeks or months, will be free for most consumers and businesses. Google will charge a fee to those who want to store a large amount of files, the people familiar with the matter said.
If you are familiar with DropBox, Apple iCloud and LiveDrive this are cloud storage services where you can store your files to cloud and retrieve it from anywhere. I am both user of DropBox and LiveDrive. Usually I store personal documents as backup and use to share documents among company members. Recently Dropbox recently added AutoSync to your device and add 500MB space per picture upload or 5GB max space.
Google services is so vast from search engine, advertising, email, mobile operating system, basically any cloud service you can think of, Google has it and Google is is trying to be one of the best cloud storage service provider and with its own Google Android this is a great way of storing your precious moment in the cloud and less worry if you accidenatally deleted the pictures and videos. I myself once saved by this with my DropBox in Android app.
