Google Drive

Google Drive is a personal cloud storage service from Google that lets users store and synchronize digital content across computers, laptops and mobile devices, including Android-powered tablet and smartphone devices. Support for Apple devices is provided via GDrive,  the Google Drive client for iPhone and iPad devices.

Google Drive Search, Sharing and Pricing

As one might expect, Google Drive additionally provides advanced search capabilities for finding specific information within files, and users can also share and collaborate with others on documents via the service's built-in access to the Google Docs suite of editing tools.

Like the competing iCloud service from Apple, Google Drive provides users with an initial 5 GB of cloud storage for free, with additional storage capacity available for purchase on a monthly basis -- currently  100-GB for $1.99 per month up to 30-TB at $299.99 per month.
