Google Drive is a platform powered by Google which allows users to create, edit, store and share files online. Text documents, spreadsheets, forms and presentations can be created, edited, stored and shared on Google Documents. The tools are useful for when a team with good internet access wants to collaborate on the creation and maintenance of such files and easily share them with others online. You can download the documents for editing offline and then upload and synch using Google Gears and the FireFox browser.
Google Drive (released in April 2012) is the latest incarnation of Google Docs, which launched in June 2006. The associated products are Google's attempt at the “software as a service” model, which hosts both the software (tool) and data on the cloud. As opposed to the traditional model that requires each user to maintain a copy of the software on
his/her own computer, Google Docs requires no software download and files can be created, edited, stored and shared entirely online (files also can be downloaded and re-uploaded as per user preference). Thus, Google Drive essentially can be viewed as a free online version of Microsoft Office (with more basic layout/formatting features and enhanced online sharing functionality).
