`Google Cloud Storage`_ is a managed service for storing unstructured data. Cloud Storage
allows world-wide storage and retrieval of any amount of data at any time. You can use
Cloud Storage for a range of scenarios including serving website content, storing data
for archival and disaster recovery, or distributing large data objects to users via direct download.

A comprehensive list of changes in each version may be found in the `CHANGELOG`_.

Install this library in a virtual environment using `venv`_. `venv`_ is a tool that
creates isolated Python environments. These isolated environments can have separate
versions of Python packages, which allows you to isolate one project's dependencies
from the dependencies of other projects.

With `venv`_, it's possible to install this library without needing system
install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system

Code samples and snippets live in the `samples/`_ folder.
