G Suite

A Web-based set of productivity applications from Google. Previously entitled Google Apps for Work, G Suite is a paid version that presents a business face to employees with their company logo on every page. Third-party applications are also available. In addition, G Suite guarantees 99.9% uptime for email.

G Suite Basic
The Basic service includes email (Gmail), calendar, cloud storage (Google Drive) along with word processing, spreadsheet and presentation (Google Docs). IT personnel manage all G Suite users from an admin console. See Google Drive and Google Docs.

G Suite Business
The Business option includes everything in Basic along with unlimited cloud storage and Google Vault for email retention and e-discovery. Additional auditing and reporting functions are provided.

G Suite History
In 2007, Google combined its Google Docs business suite with its Gmail and calendar into free and paid products. By offering a paid suite of primary business applications with telephone support priced per user, Google threw its hat squarely into the cloud-based office software arena. For sharing and collaborations, users can also upload local documents to the Google cloud.

When introduced, a free Standard Edition was available. Although discontinued in late 2012, existing accounts were not terminated. G Suite was originally known as the Premier Edition of Google Apps but was renamed Google Apps for Business and later Google Apps for Work.

G Suite For Education
For educational institutions, a free version of G Suite is provided without ads. See Google.
