Google Near Launch of Cloud Storage Service

Wall Street Journal: “People familiar with the matter” tell The Wall Street Journal that Google will soon launch a service very similar to that of Dropbox. Called “Drive,” the cloud storage service would allow anyone to store photos, documents or multimedia files on Google’s servers for access from any device. Drive will likely be free for most people, with a fee for those who want to store a very large amount of data.

Google previously worked on a similar cloud storage service known internally as G Drive. It was expected to launch in 2007, but never came into being.
