Google has slashed the cost of its cloud monthly storage plans to keep its service and offerings the best available online.
Google Drive director of product management Scott Johnston wrote in a blog post saying that “Whether it’s all the footage of your kids’ baseball games, the novel you’re working on, or even just your grocery list for the week, we all have files that are too important to lose. Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere.”
Google's 100GB plan has dropped to $1.99 a month from $4.99, while the 15GB plan remains free. The cost for the one 1TB has been slashed $30 — from $49.99 to $9.99. The 10TB plan will cost $99.99 while 20TB will cost $199.99 and 30 TB $299.99 a month.
Google says about terabyte as “enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things.”
Google's chief competitors Dropbox and Box have already made a huge numbers of users and the services offered by these two companies are very much appreciable also. Dropbox offers only 2GB of free space and 100GB for $9.99 a month. The most popular plan for business is the unlimited storage for $15 per month per user with five or more users where as Box offers 10GB of free storage,100GB for $5 a month, 1,000GB for $15 and unlimited for $35.
