Google Enables Offline Disk Import For Google Cloud Storage

Posted on Jun 19 2013 - 12:20am by Editorial Staff


Just like Amazon, Google today announced that it will now allow US cloud storage users to send data by snail mail for manual uploading although the price the search giant will charge is same – $80 per HDD – as that of Amazon. Google says that the service is meant for those companies that need to upload data “in the hundreds of terabytes and beyond.”

To use this offline disk import service, write your data to HDDs and then snail mail it to a Google import center. For security reasons, the data on the HDDs must be encrypted and as soon as the company received the shipment, it will upload the data into an empty Cloud Storage bucket which you designate.
