Google to start competing with Dropbox

There have been rumors floating for several months that Google is going to launch Cloud Storage service called Google Drive. Google is aiming to directly compete with the famous cloud storage, DropBox. Google already provides cloud storage for music and is called Google Music.

Almost every company is moving towards cloud computing. Apple came out with iCloud for music, backup, etc. Google has also launched laptop running on Chrome OS which basically can be touted as a cloud computing laptop as all the application on Chrome OS are web based.

It is yet to be seen if and how Google Drive will be integrated with other cloud based services Google provides. No details have been revealed by Google regarding this service. I will post more information as it becomes available. I would speculate it will initially launch as a invitation only service just like any other launch.
