Google refreshes its cloud storage, slashes prices to a new low


Google has refreshed its cloud storage offerings, introducing new tiers at a lower price. The Google Cloud Storage platform will now offer four types of storage: Multi-regional, Regional, Nearline and Coldline. Each offers availability and pricing aimed at different use cases, from streaming media to disaster recovery. Coldline is a new Google Cloud Storage tier, aimed at data accessed less than once per year. It is the lowest-priced offering, at 0.7 cents per GB per month with a five cent per GB access fee, and designed for disaster recovery and long-term archival.
