Google Drive Debuts with 5GB of Free Storage, Paid Upgrades

Google has launched its much-anticipated Google Drive, a free online storage service that provides up to 5GB to store documents, photos and multimedia files.
The new service is meant to put the Search Engine giant at the forefront of cloud-computing storage, an increasingly competitive arena.
Other services, such as Dropbox and Box, have sprung up to serve the rapid growth of Internet-powered mobile devices, led by smart phones, tablets and now ultrabooks.
By allowing the storage of photos, documents and media files on company servers, Google and the others provide the assets for computer users to work and share “in the cloud.”
Google Drive offers 5GB of storage for free, Google said on a blog post.
Google also offers upgrades to 25GB for $2.49 per month, 100GB for $4.99 per month or even 1TB for $49.99 a month.
When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25GB.
