Google Storage for Developers is a RESTful web service API for storing and accessing your data on Google's infrastructure. The service combines the performance and scalability of Google's cloud with advanced security and sharing capabilities. With this API: all data is replicated to multiple U.S. data centers, offers read-your-writes data consistency, and allows objects of hundreds of gigabytes in size per request with range-get support.
Google has been making a splash with several announcements recently on the Android front. The release of the new Nexus 7 Tablet and Chromecast, a device to broadcast directly from your Android device to your TV screens have garnered a lot of media attention. Several Google Cloud Services and APIs have also announced features that bring in some key features. Google Calendar API and Google Cloud Storage are two such services that have announced updated features in their offerings.
After pulling the plug on its Google Translate API, the company will now charge for the service. It hopes the fee will curb what it characterized as "extensive abuse." Users did not respond favorably to the original announcement and we were pleased to report that the API would be available as a paid API. We now have the details on the pricing.
