Google allows users to USB sticks and HDDs send for Cloud Storage service




Users can save their hard drives and USB sticks in the future send it to Google to let store with the online service. Google offers outstanding service because it is faster than large loads to upload data via eg a DSL line.

The service is since 2013 offered by Google, but to send up to now it was only possible for hard disks to the company. There are now more types of physical media added. Besides hard drives can now also USB drives and tape drives are sent. During the preview Google charged $ 80 a disc for importing the data. It is unclear what Google now will charge for the service.

On the page of Google Offline Media Import / Export you can read that Google leaves running the service to the company Iron Mountain. Google would soon appoint a company to provide the same service in Europe. However, where the ‘export’ section refers to the name of the service, is not clear. The competing cloud platforms from Amazon and Microsoft also offer such services.

“Never underestimate the bandwidth of a truck.”

Nice that they will also offer this. For many cloud services with a huge amount of data sent over the internet is still no solution. Send the hard disks is often faster.
