After years of rumors and speculation, Google has finally let Google Drive out of the stables. For those that are familiar or have been using online storage such as DropBox, SkyDrive, or iCloud will be familiar with the concept of Google Drive.
Basically with Google Drive, Google gives you 5GBs of storage on their servers for you to store any of your files such as photos, documents, etc. You will be able to sync these files across platforms such as PC, Mac, and Android with the appropriate software. iOS users interested with Google Drive need not worry as the Google Drive app is coming, although there is no word for Windows Phone users.
Google Docs users will be happy as Docs is integrated with Google Drive which allows collaboration of your documents, spreadsheets, and presentations as well as comments and notifications on other files. Google Drive also allows you to search by keyword and filter you files as well. It is able to search texts in your files using OCR.
5GB is not enough for you? You can upgrade to 25GB, 100GB, and 1TB for $2.49(PhP106)/month, $4.99(PhP213)/month, and $49.99(PhP2,134)/month respectively. Also, when you upgrade to a paid Drive account, your Gmail storage is automatically upgraded to 25GB.
