Google Offers Small Business Owners Free Cloud Storage For A Year


GOOGLE

Google is taking the fight for cloud-computing services in the small business market to the next level and putting cloud storage up for grabs.

Its latest big broadside against competitors Amazon and Microsoft? Offering businesses more free storage. Lots of it. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Google Cloud Platform offered two terabytes of free storage for a year, through one of its partners, a startup called Panzura.”

It’s just the latest salvo in the war to provide companies with remote storage, computing power and other technology services, which reduce companies’ need to buy and run their own equipment. Some industry insiders predict storage will soon be free.

The Journal reports, “Amazon offers a service for infrequently accessed data at one cent per gigabyte per month, which would equate to $120 a year for one terabyte of storage. Microsoft’s Azure service offers business the first terabyte of data storage for as little as 2.4 cents a gigabyte per month.”

Panzura, works with major companies to store data remotely in either Amazon, Google and Microsoft data centers. The startup also provides tools that let them access the files from multiple locations utilizing software programs.
