The Google Drive for Education is an upgrade from the earlier Google Apps for Education service, and like the predecessor, it's free. It will launch "in coming weeks," Ben Schrom, a Google product manager, said in a blog post Tuesday. Google Apps includes tools for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. Google will soon offer a big perk -- unlimited data storage -- to lure schools and their students to its Google Apps suite of online services.
Google attempted to drum up further SMB (small and medium businesses) support for its cloud platform as it held its annual Atmosphere conference in Central London.
Speaking at Google UK's head office at the bottom of Tottenham Court Road in front of an audience of 100 business leaders, Neil Delaney, European director of small and medium businesses at Google for Work, hailed the cloud as a key technology for companies that are looking to scale.
Google's Slides presentation app can now be used without an Internet connection on iOS devices, joining the two other core office productivity tools in the company's suite, the Docs word processor and Sheets spreadsheet software.
With the move, announced Monday, Google also offers an alternative to Microsoft's native Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for iPhones and iPads.
Under pressure from Microsoft's Office 365, Google has launched a premium edition of Apps with unlimited cloud storage and extra IT controls, and it has improved the Docs office productivity suite.
Although this new edition is essentially Apps for Business with an extra set of features, Google has branded it differently, shifting the spotlight from "apps" to storage by calling it Drive for Work.
The message to developers at Google's I/O fest this year was crystal clear: Android software will power everything from phones and cars to TVs and beyond. Android was the star of the show at Google's developer fest on Wednesday, with executives pitching the mobile operating software as the driving force behind everything from connected TVs and cars to new wearable devices.
Docker 1.0's release couldn't have been more eventful, with new services making use of the fast-evolving application packaging ecosystem and the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux becoming more Docker-centric.
Add another major name to that list: Google, per its announcements yesterday. Not only is Google adding support for Docker images to Google App Engine, the company has open-sourced a container management tool for Docker that is theoretically capable of running outside of Google's cloud services.
During his WWDC keynote on Monday, Apple CEO Tim Cook defiantly lobbed jabs at Google and Android as he hadn't before. Between taunts about malware, fragmentation, and inferior devices, Cook announced that the company further cut ties with Google by picking Bing as the backbone of its search efforts on its operating systems.
