Understanding google workspace
Google Workspace comprises Gmail, Chat, Meet, Calendar; Drive for storage; Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Sites for collaboration; and an Admin panel and Vault for managing users and the services.
With Google Workspace, you'll receive a number of additional business-grade services not included with Google’s free consumer apps. These services include: custom business email @yourcompany, twice the amount of cloud storage across Gmail and Drive, 24/7 phone and email support, 99.9% guaranteed uptime on business email, interoperability with Microsoft Outlook, additional security options like two-step authentication and SSO, and administrative controls for user accounts.
Every free Google account has access to 15GB of Google Drive cloud storage for email, photos, and other files. Users can store, share, and access their files and folders from any mobile device, tablet, or computer. This is a generous amount of storage because Google files (Docs, Sheets, and Slide files) don’t count toward your total.
With a G Suite Basic account users have 30GB of storage. That increases to 1TB of cloud storage with a single G Suite Business license.
We’ve found that many of our customers are able to eliminate their existing productivity suites and rely exclusively on Google Workspace to create different kinds of files, including text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You can work on those files in real time with other people and store them in the cloud with Google Drive. Google Workspace ’s apps work across devices. Unlike traditional desktop applications, there is no software to install. Google Workspace is also compatible with files made in other programs, such as Microsoft Office.
