Over the next several weeks, Google will be releasing its newest member of the Google Apps suite. 'Google Drive' is a service where users can keep everything and share anything. Google Drive replaces and enhances what we know today as Google documents list.
With Google Drive, users can securely upload any file or folder to the web and access the most up-to-date versions of those files from anywhere. Users can access Google Drive in their web browser and can also download the Drive application to their Mac, PC, Android or iOS devices to seamlessly access files across any of these devices. Each user will have 5GB of included storage space for their Google Drive.
Google Apps at WCUSD is currently on the Scheduled Release track and Google Drive will become available to users on an opt-in basis shortly. Following the opt-in period, Google Drive will become the default and will replace the documents list as the way for users to access their files and documents. At this time, all users will have access to the desktop sync clients and mobile applications. The Google Drive online interface looks similar to today’s Google documents list with a number of improvements, including new ways to organize your files and enhanced search functionality.
To get a Google Apps at WCUSD account, or for more information on Google Drive functionality, please contact Daniel Gumarang (email@example.com) or see the product overview page at drive.google.com/start.
