Google Drive already supplies more storage space than the average student needs, but that hasn't stopped the company from raising the bar further. Today it announced Drive for Education, which it will provide to all Google Apps for Education customers at no extra charge. The primary perk of this new offering is unlimited storage space. Users will be able to upload individual files up to 5TB in size. Yes, you read that right--that's a single file that takes up more space than a regular Google Drive paid account can handle. General consumers would have to pay $99.99 a month to have the service handle a file that large.


In addition to the expanding storage space, Drive for Education also includes access to Google Apps Vault (a search and recovery service) and enhanced auditing tools. Altogether, this is a package that can save students quite a bit of money and institutions even more.
