Google GDrive Cloud Storage Service to Launch in First Week of April; 1 GB Free Storage Space

March 28, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Looks like the race of the rumors about a cloud storage service from Google will subside to review comments after the first week of April. Because, that is the deadline for the launch of the service from the search giant, according to the latest tip off from circles close to Google.

But the service has infamously raised fake alarms more than once in the past and the project, presumably dragged for a long time now. It hit the headlines first in 2006 when The Wall Street Journal broke a story on the upcoming cloud storage service from Google. That was a big surprise at that time but nothing came out solid.

Again in 2007 and 2009 the story again came out from the same sources but no cloud came out with some Google name on it.

Things went for a change in 2010 when the search giant said that it will allow users to upload documents and files to Google Docs. But that was not a full-fledged cloud service per se. It again came out last February through WSJ and now comes the latest leak.

But this time, it might happen for real. The sources who gave the tip off say that the cloud service named GDrive will hit the Google beings on the earth on April first week and will offer a solid 1 GB storage for free while more space will cost you bucks.

In looks, it will be like Google docs UI and the service will come with a local client. It will launch for Google Apps customers and will be domain specific.

The API which is built for third party apps will help users to store content from other apps on cloud. To be on the safer side, Google is still to confirm it. We shall wait, April is closer.
