Google Introduces Unified Storage for Gmail and Drive

by Koosha Araghi on May 15, 2013

Google is making big changes to the way your Google Apps data is managed.  Rolling out in the coming weeks, Google will be moving to a unified storage model. Up until now, Gmail and Drive have maintained separate quotas (25 gigs for email, 5 gigs for docs). With the level of integration between the core apps continually expanding, consolidation of data seems to be the next logical step forward.

How It Will Work

Google Apps will now be comprised of 30 gigs of unified storage that can be used in any area (Gmail, Drive, Picasa, G+). The big thing here is that this means inboxes are no longer capped at 25 gigs! Previously, many users that would hit the 25 gig limit were forced to delete large portions of their messages or migrate data to a backup account.

Google is also making changes to the Drive Storage page to help clarify usage data and upgrade options.

Take a look at Google's Official Enterprise Blog for more details.
