Google™ is ready to launch a cloud-based service named Drive

After much anticipation, Google is all set to come up with a cloud-based storage service like Apple and Microsoft.

No doubt, Google is really expanding its horizons. There was a time when the company was only known for its search engine. Today, you can easily make use of its numerous products all ranging from a secure web browser, e-mail service, chat client, and online apps to manage computing tasks in the cloud. However, a cloud-based storage service was still missing. In 2007, Google developed a cloud drive (G Drive) to facilitate its customers for data storage in the cloud. But due to some reasons, it could not make an impact. For that reason, Google wants to transform the G Drive project into a much bigger platform just akin to Apple iCloud and MicrosoftSkyDrive.

According to Wall Street Journal, Google is on the verge of launching a cloud storage service with the name of Drive. Although no official comments have been made by the company on this update, but you may expect this service by the end of this month. Initially, the service will be made available for free. But, for large amount of data storage, you may need to shell out some money from your pocket. Google Drive will not just permit you to store your personal files; instead you can share the same content from any device. In addition, Google might combine Gmail accounts so that you can directly send the related links via e-mails. So, just wait and watch.
