Google Drive cloud storage comparison chart, full guide

After months of rumor and speculation, Google has finally launched their cloud storage product, functioning much like analysts predict it would, integrated into other Google services and functioning across most devices.

Google Drive finally launches

Last fall, hints of Google’s cloud storage solution, Google Drive (GDrive) were leaked, and after months of endless speculation about how Google Drive would work, appear, and integrate into other Google services, the company have finally announced the launch of Google Drive.

Sundar Pichai, SVP, Chrome & Apps at Google said that Google Drive is “a place where you can create, share, collaborate, and keep all of your stuff. Whether you’re working with a friend on a joint research project, planning a wedding with your fiancé or tracking a budget with roommates, you can do it in Drive. You can upload and access all of your files, including videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and beyond.”

Video demo of Google Drive:

Pichai notes that “Drive is built to work seamlessly with your overall Google experience. You can attach photos from Drive to posts in Google+, and soon you’ll be able to attach stuff from Drive directly to emails in Gmail. Drive is also an open platform, so we’re working with many third-party developers so you can do things like send faxesedit videos andcreate website mockups directly from Drive. To install these apps, visit the Chrome Web Store—and look out for even more useful apps in the future.”

Comparing Drive to other cloud storage options

Because many in the tech world are calling Google Drive a “killer” of its competitors, a comparison chart has been created by PCWorld to put the top cloud storage solutions side by side:

Meanwhile, there are a lot of questions surrounding the new Google Drive ranging from “is Google going to kill Dropbox?” to “what is the pricing model?” and “what features are missing?” To answer these and other questions, CNET has penned a “Google Drive FAQ” to address the common questions.
