This morning, Google Enterprise Blog published this article titled “Google Cloud Storage brings more storage solutions to the enterprise”.

For example, several providers of enterprise storage solutions have integrated with Google Cloud Storage to make their products and services even better. Gladinet is proud to be one of the first partners mentioned in the article since we bring a very unique solution to Google Cloud Storage – a simple online collaboration, online file storage, offsite backup and team work space solution.

Prior to Cloud Storage, bring your own storage to traditional software is common sense. You may bring your own USB drive and have the backup software back it up to your USB drive. As long as you possess the USB drive, you have the data available.
Bringing your own cloud storage to Gladinet Cloud is similar. Gladinet Cloud provides anywhere access, peer sharing, team collaboration, mobile app functionalities to cloud storage. When you bring your own cloud storage account to Gladinet Cloud, not only you have all the benefits Gladinet Cloud provides, you also have full data ownership since it is your own cloud storage account.
When you sign up for a Gladinet Premium account or Gladinet Team account, you can choose default storage provided by Gladinet. You can also choose to plug in your own storage account.
Plugin Your Own Cloud Storage
After that, you can configure your Gladinet Cloud account with your own storage account.
