It is finally here, now you can store your data online with Google Drive
. Google Drive is a online storage system that allows you to save your files online. It is almost the same as a physical hard drive, the main difference is that it is online and you can easily share your files with other users on the internet. In the last couple of months Google have made some serious effort to integrate Google+ with all of it’s products.
The efforts of product integration by google are paying off and Google+ users can use Google Drive for online file storage. Tighter product integration by Google also allows you to use the Google Drive service with Gmail, Google+ and other Google products.
How much does the Google Drive service cost?
Google is making 5GB available for free to any user who signs up for the service. If you are a Google+ or Gmail user your Google Drive will become available as part of the service within the next couple of days if it is not already active.
Google is also offering its users the ability to buy more storage space from them. The storage costs for additional gigabytes are very competitively priced, and offer users a cheap and reliable way of storing their files online.
