    Info Google Cloud Services (Google Music Beta invites too)

    Anybody using Goolge's Cloud Services?


    This week I decided to give some of my media a better back-up. I have a NAS with RAID 5, and several USB drives so the NAS is also backed up. But I wanted more. So I thought I'd check out some of the cloud services. As I already use google quite a bit, what with having an android phone. I decided to upload my photos, as that's my most important data, first. So I paid 3 for 20GB of extra space (if you upload in <2400 resolution it's free) so that I could upload my photos without compression. 20GB was enough for all my photos. I used Picassa to organise and changed a few settings and all was done. Now just the arduous task of waiting for my 250k upload to sort it out.

    Now I was hooked. I wanted more.

    So I managed to wangle an invite to google music beta. Only open to Yanks apparently. But a VPN later I was in.

    Now I am backing up my whole music collection - 19,800 songs - to the cloud.

    I have 3 invites left, if anyone is interested. Those people will then get 8 invites, so theoretically we could get everyone here that wants to, onboard.





    2012 is the year of the cloud. I hope that apple and google undercut each other to the extent where I can upload my entire NAS contents to a cloud of some description.

    I'll have an invite please. Will they take my whole music collection (~450gb) for free and not hand over data to music companies?

    The first 3 who posted send me your email addys.


    You only need VPN to get the software as far as I can tell. I have only used it once thus far, to download the music manager. No problems since.

    I will post the app for the android phones too.

    Thanks to Geko

    I've got 6 invites left as well if anyone wants one. Just send me your email address It works really well, my premium Spotify is due to expire in a few months so i'm slowly downloading all my music again and using Google Music instead. Love the look of the app on my Transformer.
