Google Expands Cloud Services

by | May 3, 2012 | Cloud

Google has stepped into the cloud storage arena with its new evolution of Google Docs. The service, named Google Drive, comes with 5GB of free space and payment options for up to 16TB of storage in its cloud. The client software offers central storage for documents, pictures, and files to be synced and accessed on desktops, smart phones and tablets. Most people are aware of DropBox, a very similar service. There is a lot of conjecture over what this will mean for other services similar that have started to become more well known.

This push is a big support to their long awaited Chrome OS. The mainly web browser based operating system is designed to work with tablets and netbooks with little local storage. Chrome OS would be greatly improved by remote storage with the ability to sync documents between, for example, a desktop and tablet.
