GSUtil is a command-line tool that helps developers manage their cloud storage. “The tool makes it very easy to explore various features of Google Storage for Developers – in just a few minutes, you can learn how to create a storage bucket, upload objects, and set access controls. GSUtil is implemented in Python using the popular boto open-source library. We added a new provider-agnostic StorageUri class hierarchy to the library as well as other enhancements that we’ll be giving back to the community. The URI abstraction lets developers use the same commands to access different data sources – including Google Storage, other cloud storage providers, and the local disk,” writes Google. Google Storage supports Data Liberation, so it’s simple to take your data wherever you want with a single GSUtil command: gsutil cp gs://bucket/* destination
Google Storage for Developers, “is a RESTful cloud service built on Google’s storage and networking infrastructure. Using this, developers can easily connect their apps to fast, reliable storage replicated across several US data centers. GS is designed for sharing & collaboration, with built-in authentication services and access controls based on Google Accounts. We’re introducing GS to a limited number of developers at this time. During the preview, each developer will receive up to 100GB of data storage and 300GB monthly bandwidth at no charge,” noted Google.
