Apparently Google Drive has been activated on a GeekWire user’s Google account, suggesting that the cloud service could be taking off very soon. This would fall in line with The Wall Street Journal reporting last week that Google was in fact preparing to launch the service “in the next coming weeks or months“. Google Drive is expected to be free to use for the most part, with a premium option available for more storage. The service will be added to Google’s already gigantic cloud infrastructure which hosts all of its previous services from web search to YouTube.
This will be interesting to see how Google fares with cloud storage services like DropBox and Ubuntu One, among others. Will Google simply conquer or actually have to run for its money?
