Sure, there are a couple of cloud storage services available, best known and most widely used are Dropbox and Box.net and we have heard rumors forever, that Google is also planning to jump into the cloud storage business. So far, nothing happened, except Google Docs, which lets you store your office documents online and Google Music which lets you do the same with your music. However, Om Malik was now told that Google will finally launch its service sometime during the first week of April 2012. According to the details from his sources, Google is going to offer 1 GB of free storage space only but will charge its users for more storage.
Furthermore it was mentioned that Google will come with a local client (no details for which platforms) and the web interface will look much like the Google Docs interface. Also interesting is Malik's information that Google Drive, which is rumored to be called GDrive, will launch for Google Apps customers as well as Google is said to has also built an API for third party apps. While we haven't seen it yet, Malik's sources "are impressed, so far with what they have seen".
I'm not really excited that Google is going to offer 1 GB free of charge, today I have more than 10 GB free of charge at Dropbox and 50 GB free of charge at Box.net and therefore Google's integration must be really good that it will moves me away from Dropbox and Box.net - not to mention that Dropbox's Android client is working pretty good which gives me one reason less to move along.
