Google's File Storage Facility

The WSJ reported that Google is planning to announce storage facility for users to store their files online. It makes a lot of sense and would be an excellent addition to Google Apps, especially for small businesses.

It is interesting that this news comes out shortly after Microsoft announced its Home Server product. Both products are at clearly at two extremes of the spectrum. While one tries to minimize the use of hardware, the other sells greater hardware power combined with software.
