Google Drive

by Van Murray on April 24, 2012

Google Drive launched today for Google Apps for Business. Google Drive is a new service that allows you to map a “drive” to your computer allowing you to store files in the cloud. Replace your existing file server or enhance your current experience with Google Docs.

If you are an existing Google Apps for Business customer and have any questions regarding this new service or need help migrating, please contact us.

Access your files anywhere

Google Drive on your Mac, PC or mobile device (or your browser) gives you a single place for up-to-date versions of your files from anywhere. In addition to any file type you choose to upload, Google Docs are also stored in Google Drive.

Open and view any file

View over 30 file types right in your browser, including images, HD videos, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop files, even if your device doesn’t run the file’s original software. Save files from Smartsheet, DocuSign, or SlideRocket and other web apps directly to Google Drive, and launch those apps by opening these file types from your Drive.

Designed for security

Google Drive is designed for security and reliability with features like two-step authentication, encrypted connections to Google’s servers, simultaneous replicated storage for your documents, built-in disaster recovery and fine-grained sharing controls that let you share your work with the right people.

Buy what you need & grow flexibly

Start with 5 GB of included storage for each of your users. Need more? For as little as $4/month for 20 GB, administrators can centrally purchase and manage up to 16TB (Yes, that’s 16,000 GB!) of additional storage for each user.
