Google Drive is one of the premier services for file storage and collaboration currently available in the marketplace.
Many organizations are using Google Drive as part of Google Apps for Business to handle all of their file sharing and storage needs.
Users can compose documents, spreadsheets and presentations using Google Docs and then manage and share all of their files in the same place using Drive’s collaboration features.
If one user is editing a file in Google Drive, others users with the same file open will see the document changes in real time. In other words, you can watch someone edit a document as they type from the other side of the world.
