Google launches Drive

Google Drive
  • Create and collaborate. 
  • Store everything safely and access it anywhere (especially while on the go). 
  • Search everything.
5GB of storage for free. You can choose to upgrade to 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month. When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25GB.

See the Official launch info here

This is just the beginning, Drive is an open platform and third party developers are working on features like send faxes, edit videos and create website mockups directly from Drive.

There is significant debate going on with regard to Drive and other competing systems, e.g. Dropbox however just being able to edit files and store / access them across multiples environments is a much more attractive proposition than just synchronisation. (IMHO)
