Added on: 2012-04-24 15:25:50 by: Emanuel

The much awaited Google Drive is now available. Launching today, Google Drives, is an online storage service, similar to Dropbox or MIcrosoft's Skydrive, with support for Android, Windows, iOS and Mac.

Out of the box users will have 5 GB of cloud storage for free with the possibility of purchasing 25 GB of space for $2.49 a month, 100 GB for $4.99 a month, or up to 16 TB which apparently is the limit available per account.

With all the online file storage services today the questing is: Why choose Google Drive? The answer is simple, if you're frequent Google user it will enrich your overall Google experience. For example, if you use Google Plus you can post photos on G+ directly from Drive. Google also announced that soon you will be able to attach files from Drive directly to emails in Gmail. Google Docs is now integrated within Google Drive and will allow users to work with others on projects in real-time.

The service will support the opening of over 30 types of documents directly from your browser, including video, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, without the need to have an app installed.

The only downside is the fact that it has no Linux support currently available, whereas other similar services, like Dropbox, have support for Linux.
