Google Drive is here, 5gb online store for free
The long awaited Google Drive cloud storage is now available, it went live today. For the past few weeks the rumors have been going around about what the service will have to offer, well now the rumors can be put to bed. Google Drive has 5gb of cloud storage for free and you can get up to 1tb of storage with paid accounts. Up to 99.95% up time is being stated by Google which is pretty good too. The Google Drive storage is actually an extension of the Google Docs application and files stored in Docs do not take up the storage of Drive but will be accessible. One interesting feature of Drive is that docs uploaded will be scanned with OCR to allow document searching. The Google Drive storage can be accessed through any web browser, Windows OS, OS X and on Android. The iOS app will be available in the near future.
Here is google’s introduction to Drive video.
If you need an extra 5gb of cloud storage ( and who doesn’t?) then head over to drive.google.com and sign up for you account.
