News about storage as a service
  • New market in corporate cyberspace emerges

    When Google announced that users of its Gmail services or Picasa web albums could buy extra online storage it sent up a flare about the way data storage might work in the future. The announcement signalled the emergence of what might become the storage-as-a-service market.
    Google's Gmail and Picasa users have had 2.8 gigabyte and 1 gigabyte of free storage, now they can buy more - starting at $US20 ($23.80) a year for another 6 gigabytes. It's cheap and fuss-free.
