Unlimited Cloud Storage and Powerful Integration With Office 365 and OneDrive
“Today, storage limits just became a thing of the past.” – Chris Jones, corporate vice president, OneDrive
How much storage space does your business need? How much are you willing to pay for it, and would you spend more for unlimited storage in the cloud? Services like Box and Dropbox offer free storage, but their generosity isn’t unlimited. The 50 GB of free cloud storage space that Box supplies is for personal accounts. Dropbox basic accounts start with 2 GB of space, but then you’ll have pay more to get more.
Google Drive is free-to-use, and you can store up to 15 MB. Moreover, you can create docs, sheets, and slides and then share them with your co-workers. That 15 MB limit isn’t huge, however, and Google applications aren’t as robust as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. When you’re crunching numbers late at night, would you prefer the familiarity of Excel or the Google spreadsheets function list?
For businesses in search of cloud storage solutions, there’s another option. Recently, Microsoft OneDrive announced that all Office 365 customers will get unlimited OneDrive storage at no additional cost. In other words, starting at $5.oo per user per month, your business will be able to store unlimited data in the cloud. That’s not all, however. Chris Jones, the corporate VP of OneDrive and SharePoint, explains.
According to Jones, the “true value” of this offer is that OneDrive cloud storage is “tightly integrated” with the personal and professional tools that people are already using – namely Microsoft applications. OneDrive also supports the way users save data. For example, if you save your work to a local library called Corporate, just synchronize Corporate with OneDrive.
