Report: Google to offer 5GB of free cloud storage

A leaked image has revealed that Google plans to offer customers 5GB of free cloud storage through its upcoming Google Drive service, which is expected to launch sometime in April.

TalkAndroid obtained a screenshot that shows the details of the new system, which has been heavily rumored for awhile now. The tech blog says that Google Drive will likely launch the week of April 16th.

Many technology companies are realizing the need for digital storage away from hard drives, and are launching services to compete with each other. Google's 5GB of free storage is on par with Amazon's Cloud Drive and better than Dropbox's 2GB. Microsoft currently offers a whopping 25GB of free storage through its SkyDrive.

While businesses may be moving to cloud storage for their files, it's always important to have physical backups. Renting a storage locker for document storage can be a smart way for businesses to keep all of their physical files in an easy-to-access location. There are many options for cheap storage in Toronto and other major cities.

Jiffy Self Storage is currently running its iPad 3 contest, with more details on its website. The brand-new iPad could be very useful for businessmen who need access to files and the internet on the go.
