Today, the price for Google’s cloud storage services dropped down a significant 80%. Marketed under the Google Drive brand, the cloud storage offered by the most popular search engine in the world, was started in 2012. It currently offers 15 GB of free space which spans across several applications – Google Docs, Google Picasa (photo sharing and storage service) and Google Drive, along with Google’s Gmail. Documents created in Google Docs and pictures up to a certain size are not added to the total storage capacity and storing them is free for everybody.
Cheap Cloud Storage
Google Drive offers two main subscription options, along with the free subscription of 15 GB. The first, consisting of 100 GB used to cost users and businesses a total of $4.99 up until today when it was reduced to $1.99 per month! This is great news for everybody looking for that extra space to store their files and lessen the burned on their personal hard drives. And for $1.99 a month, just about everyone can afford it and we can expect a significant surge in subscriptions for this service.
The second main plan offered by Google Drive consists of 1 TB of storage. This used to cost subscribers a total of $49.99 a month, but was reduced to a mere $9.99 a month today. And this is just fantastic – to get 1 TB of storage space in the cloud for just 10 bucks a month! Businesses will surely flood in, as most conduct their services in the cloud in order to reduce infrastructure-related costs.
Beating The Competition
There are two other significant players in the cloud storage game: One Drive from Microsoft and Dropbox. One Drive offers the same 100 GB of storage for $49 per year, while Dropbox charges its subscribers a total of $99 per year. That’s $7.49 per month for 100 GB on One Drive and around $8.25 on Dropbox. Looking at these figures, Google Drive offers the same service well under half of what its competitors are asking.
Cloud storage is the big thing unfolding right now in the tech world.
