The worldwide leader of web services, Google has announced on its web site that they’re offering Gmail and Picasa Web Albums users the chance to purchase up to 250GB additional storage when the users reach the limit of the presently free storage.


According to the company, “The Picasa team is pleased to tell you that in a few hours we’ll be rolling out extra storage that you can purchase to use across several Google products (today, Picasa Web Albums and Gmail; soon, other applications like Google Docs & Spreadsheets). That will help make storage really useful, like letting you upload lots of full resolution images to Picasa Web Albums. When you reach the limit of free storage (i.e., 1GB for Picasa Web Albums, 2.8GB for Gmail), consider this your overflow solution. Plans start at $20/year for 6GB (yes, $5 cheaper than before), with larger plans ranging up to 250GB. If only testing everything were this easy.”

Do you willing to spend between $20 to $500 per year for a mass storage space that available in 6, 25, 100 and 250GB?
