The long-awaited Google Drive is finally here. The new product, launching today and available at drive.google.com, offers users 5 GB of file storage and syncing and effectively replaces Google Docs (which has offered file storage for a couple of years.)

At the end of the day, which one you choose is probably dependent on how you work and who you’re sharing with. Google Apps for Education and the New Google Drive
