Okay, so we’re a little late to this one, but while no one was looking, Google Drive for Education went both free and unlimited last month, much to the delight of schools and districts that make use of its splendor. The announcement from Google:
“Google Drive will be available to all Google Apps for Education users with unlimited storage, Vault, and enhanced auditing tools for free!”
Drive for Education will be available to all Google Apps for Education customers at no charge and will include:
1. Unlimited storage: No more worrying about how much space you have left or about which user needs more gigabytes. Drive for Education supports individual files up to 5TB in size and will be available in coming weeks.
2. Vault: Google Apps Vault, our solution for search and discovery for compliance needs, will be coming free to all Apps for Education users by the end of the year.
3. Enhanced Auditing: Reporting and auditing tools and an Audit API easily let you see the activity of a file, are also on the way.”
