StorageObject storage with a fully-featured API

Though Cloud Storage can be accessed with a simple API, advanced feature sets add flexibility and power. Object versioning, parallel uploads and CRC-based integrity checking give developers the ability to create robust, sophisticated applications. You can access the API using XML or JSON directly, or use libraries for several popular programming languages.

FlexibleFlexible access

You can serve static objects directly from Cloud Storage or use it as a data store for other Google products. Access your storage from BigQuery, App Engine, or other Cloud Platform services. Your data is accessible via an authenticated RESTful API that provides speed, flexibility, and OAuth-backed security.
