Yahoo Cloud Storage to compete with Google Drive storage

Google’s former employee and Yahoo’s new CEO Marissa Mayer’s vision to bring back the lost status to Yahoo seems to be working out finally. Marissa Mayer on Feb 20th, 2013 unveiled the new look of Yahoo’s Home page and mobile sites. The face lift to Yahoo Home Page will bring it back into the trend of 21st century.

Additionally, Yahoo Users may get IP storage service in lines with Google Drive which was launched almost a year back. Although, this piece of news was leaked out at the end of last year; it was not taken seriously till date. But when Marissa unveiled the new look of Yahoo Home Page, she also revealed her intentions to add more to Yahoo services in coming days.

Responding to a media interaction, Marissa did not completely turn down the idea of hosting yahoo cloud storage services in future. She added that this media buzz can turn into reality soon, as she is always open to ideas which will pave way for the growth Yahoo Business. As per a media source, Yahoo is said to step into IP storage business in early 2014 and will come up with something innovative in this regards. But still silence is being maintained on the service which may be a revamp to the company’s extinct  “Yahoo  Briefcase or Yahoo Sherpa”.

Some technology analysts feel that the business of IP storage is presently lucrative to big heads like Google and so Yahoo will surely make its presence felt in it in coming days. But they come to a conclusion that, unless and until Yahoo comes up with something innovative or supernatural, it’s stepping into Cloud business may not be fruitful.

Coming back to Yahoo Home Page, the new look will be rolled out to all the users of yahoo by this weekend. Marissa’s aim is to make yahoo users turn back everyday and in order to achieve it, the new page has been designed in an attractive and user friendly way.

Since, the trend of touch interface mobile devices is catching up on a fast note; Yahoo aims to bank on this trend with its revamp of its home page.

The company aims to improve its visitors count within six months and will keep their interest intact, with timely introduction of innovative features.

For now, all we can do is to wish this web service provider “Best of luck!”

    1. Hello Abhishek,

      Early this year, it was revealed that Yahoo is yet to take a decision on this issue and might have also dropped/postponed its plan. Currently, they are busy with acquisitions.Anyway, will let you know if we get any latest update on this issue.

      Good Day and hope you have a great week ahead!

    1. Ashok,

      CEO Marissa Mayer dropped the idea of starting a new cloud storage service for Yahoo. It is now more interested in acquiring small companies than trying anything new.

      Instead of creating its own cloud storage service, Yahoo decided on an approach that may end up being better for its users—a partnership with Dropbox. Starting in late 2013, Yahoo Mail customers will be able to use Dropbox within webmail.

      It works similar to that of Google Drive which is integrated to Gmail………hope, it helped!
