Microsoft announced today that it has increased the amount of storage that each user of OneDrive for Business gets from 25 GB to 1 TB. Furthermore, all Office 365 ProPlus customers will get 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage per user as part of their subscription.
OneDrive for Business is basically the business version of OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) for consumers in that it provides subscribers with a certain amount of cloud-based storage on a per-user basis. But OneDrive for Business is based on robust, secure and manageable SharePoint technology. It comes with all of the business-oriented versions of Office 365, including now Office 365 ProPlus, which previously only provided subscription-based access to the the Office 2013 applications.
It seems is becoming harder and harder to keep track of the changes to Office 365 – in a good way.
Microsoft are continuing there relentless and almost unstoppable Software As A Service Office 365 offering and have recently announced another change for Office 365 customers with OneDrive for Business soon to offer 1 TB of storage – per user.
The Office 365 Blog is quoted as saying:
“We believe Microsoft offers the most complete solution for businesses looking to maximize their employees’ ability to create, collaborate, analyze and act – and sharing, storing and syncing are foundational to that,” Microsoft’s John Case writes in a post to the Office News Blog. “OneDrive for Business is unique because it offers the flexibility of a reliable and secure standalone service, but is also a tightly integrated Office 365 service, offering enterprise-class productivity.”
