Google Cloud Platform Launches New Cold Storage Service

More Google: Google Cloud Platform is getting a new cold storage service. “If you know your Google Cloud Storage, the launch of a new cold storage service may surprise you. With Nearline, Google already offers a very affordable service for data archiving and disaster recovery, after all. When Nearline first launched, it was very similar to Amazon Glacier in that you would get a very cheap storage service but you had to pay for that with increased latency. When Nearline came out of beta earlier this year, though, it also became much faster. Instead of three to five seconds of latency, access to data was now real-time.”
