Google Storage

Google released an early version of a storage program called Google Storage for Developers. It’s a solution in the field of Amazon S3, where yoy pay for usage. Google writes:

Google Storage for Developers is a RESTful service for storing and accessing your data on Google’s infrastructure. The service combines the performance and scalability of Google’s cloud with advanced security and sharing capabilities. (...)

In addition, Google Storage for Developers offers a web-based interface for managing your storage and GSUtil, an open source command line tool and library. The service is also compatible with many existing cloud storage tools and libraries.

Part of Google Storage are the BigQuery and Prediction APIs. According to Google, the former handles “fast, interactive analysis over datasets containing trillions of records”, while the latter helps you “use historical data to make real-time decisions such as recommending products, assessing user sentiment from blogs and tweets, routing messages or assessing suspicious activities.”

For now, you can sign up on a waiting list.
