Google has unveiled a new product called Google Cloud Storage Nearline designed to allow unlimited backup and storage at low cost and data recall within seconds.
The firm said that, unlike traditional cold cloud storage solutions, Google Cloud Storage Nearline can retrieve data in under three seconds, subject to network conditions, but at a cost of one cent per gigabyte while at rest.
Charges rise slightly during egress, but to most territories this can go as low as eight cents per gigabyte for locations outside China and Australia.
Security is assured by redundant storage being kept at multiple physical locations, protected by granular access control and OAuth as part of a highly configurable security offering.
Nearline is a white label offering being resold by partners including NetBackUp (Veritas/Symantec will offer Nearline starting in version 7.7), NetApp (Steelstore will bring this online by the end of 2015), Iron Mountain (a co-authored solution currently under development) and Geminare (as part of its disaster-recovery-as-a-service offering with the Google Compute Engine).
