Google has just shown us the early version of a cloud-based storage system, which could soon compete against similar services such as Amazon Web Services’ S3 according to cnet.

Google Storage, according to its Google Labs site, is a Representational State Transfer or “RESTful” service for storing and accessing data on Google’s cloud infrastructure with all data being replicated to multiple US data centers that is exclusive for developers. “Developers can easily connect their applications to fast, reliable storage replicated across several U.S. data centers,” Jessie Jiang of the Google Storage for Developers team, said in a blog post Wednesday.  Google says that is will have incrrease performance and scalability in Google’s cloud infrastructure with advanced security and sharing capabilities with key or email-based authentication.

Google Storage for Developers currently has on a waiting list for those interested. These test developers get 100GB of data storage capacity and 300GB per month in data-transfer bandwidth.  What will Google not own now?
