Google Docs storage... "It's been done before."

Someone doing marketing for HyperOffice emailed me this:

<<There's a lot of hyperventilating about Google extending Google Docs to allow users to store any kind of file up to 250MB in size to the cloud.

There's nothing new here.

It's been done before.

Consider HyperOffice,, the award-winning cloud-computing collaboration suite for small and medium-sized businesses – and departments within the enterprise that need to be more agile than IT resources.

HyperDrive is built into HyperOffice. Just drag and drop any file, any size, any format. Private. Or shared with coworkers, groups, mobile workers, customers, business partners and suppliers.

Available to any HyperOffice user since November 2004.

Hmm. Let's see. That's six years ahead of Google?

Now ... storing documents, spreadsheets and presentations to the cloud may be good news for Google Docs fans.

But then what?

HyperOffice meshes HyperDrive with a range of software-as-a-service business collaboration applications – shared calendars and contacts, business-class email, document and project management, web conferencing, databases and web forms; forums, polls and wikis; project and task portals, Intranets and Extranets; user rights, versioning, commenting, backup, and more, including Skype, built in.>>
