It is a cloud based system meaning you can access all your documents from anywhere in the world and on any device as long as you have the correct login to your account. An IT professional based out of Cape Cod says, “Cloud based systems are growing in popularity because of how flexible and affordable they are. We always recommend the right system to our clients, because in some cases cloud is the way to go for some corporations.”


Function and capacity

The main function of Google Drive that is most prominent is to save files or documents and users can access them anywhere both at home and at the office of course by connecting to an internet connection. Google drives provide a storage capacity of 5GB and can be increased by paying around 2.5 USD per month. Data that can be stored in Google Drive is data created through the Google Drive menu itself and data created using other applications outside of Google Drive.
