I am looking to use a Cloud Storage provider as an attached drive on Windows Server 2008, kind of like an iSCSI storage device.
I downloaded Google Drive which created a new folder on my system, but it downloaded the files on Google Drive to my local system. The reason for doing this is to save space on my system, but Google Drive just duplicates everything in the cloud locally eating up space.
Students whose school use Google Apps for Education will soon be able to store as many files in their Google Drive folders as they like. Earlier this year, Google launched Drive for Work, its premium $10/month version of Google Drive with unlimited storage and a couple of additional enterprise features.
Google knows that everybody loves more free storage space, so they have tripled the amount of free cloud-based storage they offer on Google Drive from 5GB to 15GB. Kind of. Previously, Google Drive offered 5GB of storage, and Gmail offered 10GB.
If you’re like me, you probably utilize more than one cloud storage service. I mostly use Dropbox and Google Drive. I even have a Box account, but I rarely use it. If you frequently use more than one service, you might want to check out CloudCube.
The reach of Google’s productivity suite is extending to students. Today, the company announced Drive for Education. It works with any Chromebook, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. Drive for Education combines ample storage space with tight security. It is labeled as the twenty-first century backpack.
