By now, we have head every company talk about how cloud computing is the next big thing and how it will benefit businesses. In a bid to lead the cloud race….Google announced that it is rolling out the ability to upload all file types to the cloud through Google Docs.

This will allow users to store their important files online, where they can access them easily and share them with others. According to a post on The Official Google Blog, “Over the next few weeks, we’re rolling out the ability to upload all file types to the cloud through Google Docs, giving you one place where you can upload and access your key files online.”

Google Docs now supports files up to 250 MB in size, which is larger than the attachment limit on most email applications, claims the company. Users will be able to backup large graphics files, RAW photos, ZIP archives and much more to the cloud. So, instead of a USB drive, users can now use Google Docs as a more convenient option for accessing their files on different computers. In addition to uploading any file into Google Docs, Google Apps Premier Edition customers can also seamlessly upload many files at once and sync them with their desktop in real time using third-party applications.  According to the Google blog, the feature will be enabled in users’ accounts over the next couple of weeks.

This initiative will be a sure shot initiative amongst users…and might soon see some interesting offerings from other companies as well!
