Upload and Access Files Anywhere With Google Docs Cloud Storage

Written By Sam on 13 January 2010

Instead of carrying important files on your USB you can use Cloud storage to access them everywhere. You can now use Google Docs Cloud Storage to store your important files. Google will be rolling out the ability to upload, store and organize any type of file in Google Docs over the next few weeks. With this you will be able to upload and access your files from any computer with an Internet connection. Though there are many other services already similar to this, it would be better to get all the services from one place i.e Google.

With this new cloud storage feature from Google you can upload to Google Docs any file up to 250 MB. You’ll have 1 GB of free storage for files you don’t convert into one of the Google Docs formats. Additionally you can also buy extra storage space for just $0.25 per GB per year. You can also search for documents that you have uploaded or that have been shared with you just like you do with your Google documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and PDFs.

This Google Docs Cloud Storage will also be available for Google Apps users. Google Apps users can easily upload and securely share any type of file internally and externally using Google Docs. Even Google Apps users also will be getting 1 GB of storage per user, and you can upload files up to 250 MB in size.

One more point to note here is that Microsoft since 2008 is offering 25GB of cloud-based storage space for free through Windows Live SkyDrive. As a Windows Live customer you can upload many different types of files to the cloud – including large graphic files, MP3s, PDFs, videos and more.

I feel that this move from Google is just an initial step and there might be many more surprises in the coming days. What say Google?
