Google to Announce Amazon S3 Competitor at I/O

Google may be set to announce an Amazon S3 competitor at its I/O conference this week, according to TechCrunch.

Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.

Google will be announcing a new service that is a direct competitor with Amazon’s S3 cloud storage. Google’s service will be called Google Storage for Developers, or ‘GS’. We believe it will be available in a private beta initially. We also hear that the service will be positioned to make it very easy for existing S3 customers to make the switch to Google Storage.

The service is said to offer a REST API, authenticated downloads via Google account, data redundancy, and both command line and web management tools.
