First let’s look at the cost, Google Drive’s first 15GB are free to anyone with a Google account and as the storage space increases so does the price, ranging from 100GB for $1.99 to 30TB for $299.99. For the consumer user who also wants access to Google Apps for Work the cost is $5 per month. For business there is Google Apps Unlimited which includes the ecosystem of all Google Apps for Work like mail, calendar, and drive with unlimited storage at only $10 per user per month. There is also the ability to add storage space for specific users ranging from 20GB for $4.00 to 16TB for $1,420.00. It can store media of any format like word documents, photos, pdf’s, videos, and audio files. They even have the capacity to create and convert media to a Google formats.
Google Drive’s features include their native media formats, namely docs, sheets, and slides. They perform on a web-based cloud, but the drive can also be downloaded onto your desktop or other devices and update automatically. They offer 24/7 support, sharing permissions, and third party integrations.
I selected Google Drive because I use it on a daily basis for personal use and work. I really like its features and the ecosystem it has created to make it easy to access everything you need in one place.
