Redefining Archival Cloud Storage

Nearline and Coldline offer ultra low-cost, highly-durable, highly available archival storage. Coldline is ideal for cold storage - data your business expects to touch less than once a year. For warmer storage, choose Nearline: data you expect to access less than once a month, but possibly multiple times throughout the year. Both options are available across all GCP regions and provide unparalleled sub-second access speeds with a consistent API.
