The tech engine giant Google has launched a cloud storage service for the users in order to store ‘cold data’ and access it at a faster rate as compared to the traditional services. The solution is a good option for the organizations as they churn out vast amount of data which they don’t need immediately but would like to retain for future use.
The blog post of the tech company read, that the Google Cloud Storage Nearline service will allow the users to access the stored data in the time span of three seconds and will charge the organization for 1 cent per gigabyte of data at rest.
Similar kind of service is offered by the Amazon.com’s cloud service Amazon Web Services named as Glacier. However, the service prepares the data for download in the span of three to five hours.
The companies like Symantec, NetApp and Iorn Mountain are the partners of Google who would provide the new service.
