Google launches storage service for personal files
Mountain View, Calif: Google is hoping to build the world`s largest digital filing cabinet in the latest attempt to deepen people`s dependence on its services.
The Internet search leader`s latest product stores personal documents, photos, videos and a wide range of other digital content on Google`s computers. By keeping their files in massive data centers, users will be able to call up the information on their smartphones, tablet computers, laptops and just about any other Internet-connected device.
Google announced the long-rumored service Tuesday. Available immediately, Google Drive is offering the first five gigabytes of storage per account for free. Additional storage will be sold for prices starting at $2.49 per month 25 gigabytes.
Google Inc. will be competing against similar storage services offered by Microsoft, Apple and rapidly growing startups such as Dropbox.
