If you ever feel like your small business is not getting enough from its cloud storage, then you should know that a new and improved approach from Google Workplace could well be the answer that you have been looking for.

The tech company just announced that it will be switching to a pooled type of storage model for users on its entry-level Google Workspace Business Starter plan.

Google Workspace Business Starter and the plan in question that is designed to help those small businesses and start-ups that are looking to quickly grow, prior to this offered 30GB of storage per user, but it will now be seeing a significant rise due to the new change in question.

What Google Is Set To Achieve With This Plan

Google Workspace instead is now moving to a pooled storage approach type, simply meaning that capacity will now be shared across a whole organization.

And asides from taking away the need to manage usage on a per-user basis, getting to solve a major resource drain for admins, the company also states that it offers a more simplified as well as flexible method in general.

Members of Business Starter will also gain access to shared drives soon, thus allowing them to create shared drives and then add members, files, and folders. Google Workspace has said that the move in question should help to cut the friction around file sharing and online collaboration, as well as also making it easier to discover files, and get to access them wherever you need to, “regardless of location or device”.

“Part of empowering our customers to do their best work means reducing the friction around file sharing and collaboration,” the company noted in a Google Workspace blog post announcing the very change.

Availability of the Change

New customers that are signing up for a Business Starter subscription will however be the first to receive the new pooled storage approach, with existing Business Starter customers on the other hand set to move over during the next couple of months.

At the moment, Google Workspace Business Starter subscription plans begin at $6 per user per month, with users and subscribers also able to select a more advanced Standard or Plus offer at $12 or $18 per user every month.

Anyone who is looking for something simpler can however try out the most basic plan of the company, with Google Workspace Essentials providing access to users to the likes of Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides for free and you don’t even need a Gmail account to sign up for the service.
