Mover and Google Cloud Storage

We’re happy to introduce Google Cloud Storage as the newest member of the our Connector family!

Google Cloud Storage is a a powerful, simple and cost effective object storage service for developers and IT organizations. Google Cloud offers three different levels of storage via the same API – including Nearline, “cold” (offline) storage for your data that can be retrieved almost instantaneously.

Why Make The Switch?

Our answer: because you can. Mover empowers people to put their data wherever they want, whether it’s for pricing, availability, or features within a particular ecosystem.

Google has made a pretty convincing argument when it comes to storage – even when your data is offline, it should still be accessible relatively quickly (or in their case within seconds). Most other companies offering a similar service require multiple hours to retrieve your data from cold storage.

That’s a few hours difference between getting back to work when you need to restore after a system crash or in a disaster recovery situation, all stored inexpensively.

Getting Into Google Cloud
