Google Drive for Education Unveiled With Free Unlimited Storage and More
Following the release of Google Drive for Work in June, the search giant on Tuesday announced a similar service for students called Google Drive for Education.

The Drive for Education service will be available to all Google Apps for Education customers at no extra charge. Users will get unlimited online storage and support for individual files up to 5TB in size in the coming weeks.

Google has also announced that its add-on Google App Vault will also be released for free to all Apps for Education users by the end of the year. Google Apps Vault is essentially a web-based tool that lets users retain, archive, search, and export their organisation's email for eDiscovery and compliance needs. The company has also promised enhanced auditing tools for the service Drive for Education in future.

"All of this comes with the same world-class security that protects all Drive users. Every file uploaded to Google Drive is encrypted, not only from your device to Google and in transit between Google data centers, but also at rest on Google servers. [...]We want educators and students who use Google Apps for Education to be able to focus on the learning experience-not the technology that supports it. With Drive for Education, users can put an end to worries about storage limits and more easily maintain a safe, effective and compliant learning environment," said Ben Schrom, PM Google Apps for Education.

The service also integrates the earlier announced the free education tool called Classroom under the Google Apps for Education suite. With Drive for Education, it will automatically organises all Classroom assignments into a Drive folder.
