We’ve been keeping a close eye on when Google Apps users would be able to upgrade their storage in Google Docs. Google Docs storage upgrade has been available for Google Accounts since this past May. However, until today, Google Apps users could not upgrade their Google Docs storage. This was driving me mad because I store tons of PDF documents in Google Docs, essentially using it as my server and I cannot work with 1 GB of storage.
Google announced months ago that extra storage would be available for Google Apps users. For those using their personal accounts, extra storage is affordable — just $5 a year for 20 GB. When Google announced that Google Apps users could upgrade their storage, they tried implementing it at much higher rates. What would run $5 a year for 20 GB for a normal Google Apps user would cost $70 under the price table that Google released for its Google Apps users.
This created a huge outburst and it was only a matter of time until the page was removed. However, we have a copy of the old proposed fee structure. It now looks like Google did the right thing, listed to their customers complaints, and have permitted Google Apps users to upgrade their Google Docs storage for the same price structure that it gives to personal accounts. The only difference now is that the extra storage cannot be applied to email boxes and only applies to Google Docs and Picasa accounts for Google Apps users.
