Writing in upFront.eZine, I speculated over the reason Autodesk provided just 1GB/3GB free online storage for its 360 cloud service. (See "How much cloud storage space is enough?".)
Could it be that Autodesk was relying on others to provide the space, such as Dropbox and SugarSync? After all, you can't even buy more space from Autodesk.
Today, we learn that the answer is Yes.
Following a seven-year wait and repeated eruptions of speculation, Google launched its cloud storage service late, calling it Google Drive. Now, there always had been an unnamed cloud storage service form Google, where it stored files created in Docs, Gmail, and from your computer. But it was not as slick as the DropBoxes of the world.
One of the launch partners is... AutoCAD WS. When you access Google Drive in your Web browser (from https://drive.google.com) and if AutoCAD WS is installed on your computer, then one of the first questions is:
Of course, similar WS links are available for Box.net, SugarSync, et al.
TIP: On Android devices, look for the icon named Drive. On iOS devices, it's not available yet ...and you probably don't care anyhow.
