What is Google Cloud Storage

Google Cloud Storage provides worldwide, highly durable object storage that scales to exabytes of data. You can access data instantly from any storage class, integrate storage into your applications with a single unified API, and easily optimize price and performance.
Storage classes for any workload
Storage classes determine the availability and pricing model that apply to the data you store in Cloud Storage.
Location types for different redundancy and performance needs
Cloud Storage has an ever-growing list of worldwide locations where you can store your data with multiple automatic redundancy options.
Object Lifecycle Management
Configure your data to automatically transition to lower-cost storage classes when it meets the criteria you specify, such as when it reaches a certain age or when you’ve stored a newer version of the data.

What Does it Mean to You?

For your business, you would like to take advantage of Google data centers and infrastructure for remote employees working from home, but you don't want to write code to use the raw Google Cloud Storage API interface. You need to find an application that is already integrated with Google Cloud Storage and ready to go.

Using an analogy, Google Cloud Storage is like hard disks in a computer, which is hard to use without the Windows file server software sitting on top of the disks. Gladinet can turn Google Cloud Storage into a secure file sharing service by layering software components on top of the underlying Google Cloud Storage services.

Gladinet's secure file sharing solution includes file server enablement, remote file access, version control, drive mapping, file locking and data protection. It is a file server application over the Internet.
