About Drive Enterprise edition

Google Drive Enterprise edition gives your organization unlimited cloud storage, Google's suite of collaborative Docs editors, and administrative controls. You get all the Drive and admin features of G Suite, without the cost of services you might not need, like Gmail, Calendar, and Meet.

Price: USD $8 per active user, per month, plus $0.04 per GB

*Upgrade if you already have Cloud Identity or Chrome Enterprise, but you don’t yet have G Suite

You can also buy Drive Enterprise through a Google Sales representative or local reseller.

All you need is an email address

Use Drive Enterprise with a small team at your company, simply by signing up with your business email address. Then optionally unlock more features by verifying  you own your domain. Here's how it works:

  1. Sign up with your email address (email verified). You can then add other users who have email addresses in the same domain. For example, if your address ends in @yourbusiness.com, you can use Drive Enterprise with other people whose addresses end in @yourbusiness.com.
  2. Optionally unlock more business features (domain verified)—If you're the owner or IT admin for your organization's domain name, you can unlock more features, such as identity management, security controls, and auditing. You also take over management of any existing Drive Enterprise users in your organization.
