However, the Drive SDK provides a lot more than just storage..

What is Streem? Unlimited Cloud Storage For Your Media. Unlike other cloud storage tools, Streem takes up no space on your computer, but still gives you instant access to your files without any lag. All media on Streem is converted on-the-fly so you can access it seamlessly regardless of the device or bandwidth.

Google Drive and Streem can be primarily classified as "File Storage" tools.

Some of the features offered by Google Drive are:

  • Create & collaborate.- In Google Drive, you can create new documents, spreadsheets and presentations instantly. Work together at the same time, on the same doc, and see changes as they appear.
  • Work better with the products you use everyday.- Say goodbye to bulky email attachments. Send a link from Google Drive in Gmail and everyone has the same file, same version鈥攁utomatically. Your pictures in Google Drive are instantly available in Google+, so you鈥檙e never more than one click away from sharing with your circles.
  • Powerful search.- Google Drive helps you get to your files faster. Search for content by keyword and filter by file type, owner and more. Google Drive can even recognize objects in your images and text in scanned documents.

On the other hand, Streem provides the following key features:

  • Truly unlimited cloud storage for $20/month. We're able to do this with our de-duplication, compression, and estimation algorithms to figure out how much the average user will store and store only unique copies of files. Based on our data and analysis, with de-duplication and compression, $20/month is enough to cover the cost of an average users' data storage.
  • No space and no syncing required. We don't require users to keep copies of files on their device (unlike Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud sync tools). We store a single copy in the cloud and stream the file data down on-demand when it's accessed.
  • On-the-fly adaptive bitrate video streaming (Apple HLS). Our video streaming technology is able to dynamically fluctuate the quality of the video stream based on the user's available bandwidth. We also transcode videos on-the-fly, so there are no transcoding wait times and users are able to watch videos instantly after upload, on any device, without having to worry about formats, codecs, quality, resolution, or file size.

        We use Nextcloud for company-file-management, personal work-documents and for collaborative work (through collabora), organize our #TODOs, that are not covered by the Bugtracker. Existing solutions either were very expensive ( Google Drive ), missed a lot of features ( Trello ) or were pretty much overloaded with features ( Wekan within Sandstorm ).

        That made Nextcloud ud our natural fit for our company management and we're convinced of its integrations and flexibility.

        Google Drive would be worthwhile as a service on its own, yet its ability to connect with so many other web applications is simply brilliant. First, connecting additional applications to Google Drive makes it more of an immediate destination when I jump onto the web. Second and even more importantly, it increases the very potential and collaborative uses of these additional applications. Many applications have only been able to realize their true power because of it. Go to the Chrome Web Store on click on the tab dedicated to Google Drive applications. You will be blown away.

        I use many online storage services, but Google Drive is the one I'm currently using the most. Especially since their recently announced price decreases, a TB of storage is not very cheap. They also have the best integration across services...if you are a Google services user, which I am. Had some issues recently with large files crashing the desktop app on the Mac, but it seems to have been fixed as I'm not experiencing it anymore.

        While the majority of our storage is on our own servers, for documentation and general paperwork, Google Drive's UI outranks anything else we've come across. It just works, and that's the best thing about it.
