It looks like the Google Drive is actually going to show up next week. Telling, when I asked, Google what the truth was about the rumours, Google said nothing to say instead of their usual “official” no-comment when I ask them about subjects they’re not ready to talk about. So, I think that this time Google Drive really is on its way.
Here’s what we think we know now about it: The service will offer 5GBs of free storage; it will be integrated with Linux, Mac, and Windows file management systems in the same way Dropbox the popular cloud-storage company is; it will be made available on the week of April 23rd; and to use it you’ll need to have a Google Account.
That sounds good, but how does it compare with the already existing personal cloud storage alternatives? Here are your most important alternatives.
