Microsoft is giving current users of its OneDrive for Business service a really big boost in file space. Starting today, the default cloud storage amount has been increased from 25GB to 1TB per user.
The Office blog also reports that everyone who subscribes to Office 365 ProPlus will get access to 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage as well, again per user. Microsoft says they will offer help to business that wish to migrate data from their current cloud storage service to OneDrive for Business. These new changes come on the heels of Microsoft launching a standalone version of OneDrive for Business a few weeks ago, without the need to get a Office 365 subscription.
The blog post also indirectly comments about competing cloud storage services such as Dropbox, which recently announced a way to link personal and business accounts. Microsoft says that its OneDrive for Business service offers companies a “holistic and comprehensive approach” that includes native integration with Office programs and documents, along with other features. The blog ended by Microsoft stating, “The cloud is about breaking down walls between people and information. Not building a new set of islands in the sky.”
