Google Inc. Cornering Online Storage Market by Cutting Cloud Prices

Google is a web search engine that operates under Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG). As we all know that it is the most popular search engine on the internet and handles more than 3 billion searches per day. Google was introduced to the world of internet in 1997 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. The content that appears on Google as a result of a search depends on the ranking of the page and its popularity. You can search about anything on Google, like news, pictures, blogs, videos, maps, weather forecasts, websites, general information, dictionary etc. – a few hard facts that almost everyone knows.

Google Inc. keeps trying to improve its services for the users and one such initiative is Google Chrome which is also a free web browser. It was initially released for Microsoft Windows in the year 2008. By the year 2010 Google Chrome gained popularity and a stable release was made to support its three versions Google X, OS and Linux. Google Chrome is now one of the most popular search engines in the world and many have switched to Google chrome as their default web search engine.

Google cloud storage is another service that Google introduced to simplify things for its customers. Google cloud is an online file storage web service that stores data and provides access to it using Google’s  infrastructure. The service provides security and sharing capabilities to its users and works in the same manner as Amazon S3 online storage does.

To get access to Google cloud you need to make an account and accept the terms and conditions of the service and set up an account for payments. After doing that you can sit back and let the cloud service take care of your data and photos and everything else. You do not need to worry about saving your files or losing them as everything gets stored in the Google cloud and you can access it anytime you want from anywhere you want. However, since there is a lot of competition in the field of cloud services other companies like Amazon and Microsoft Corp. are a source of constant worry for Google, therefore Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) recently announced a price drop in its cloud services.

Google had previously reduced the prices of its cloud services as well and this time Google announced a 10% reduction in the cost across board. By reducing prices Google is aiming at getting more people for its services and getting more traffic to it. The tough competition has compelled Amazon and Microsoft to reduce their prices as well and the three companies have been doing so to beat one another in this war.

Google explained why it could afford the price cut in its cloud services by saying that the hardware costs had been reduced and the data centers have become more efficient than before which allowed Google to make its cost cheaper.

Google is a complete package that provides its users with variety of services like web search, storage, e-mail etc. it is fast and efficient and tries its best to bring new innovations to the world of internet and keeps its users up to date with the ever changing world of technology.
