The end of unlimited cloud storage is here. Along with many other services, Google has already moved to a paid model for their services and will begin charging UC Berkeley for our stored content in 2024 if we do not reduce our storage consumption. We currently store 11.2 PB of data across all Google services, and our new storage cap, without significant additional fees, is 2.6 PB. We will be making several changes to the service beginning in January of 2023, however, customers will not experience any immediate impact. Please see the project plan and FAQ for more details about the plan and how you may be affected.
Please join us for monthly virtual town halls (third Wednesday of every month from 1-2pm) for discussing these changes.
