OneDrive For Business Storage Increases to 1TB per User

8

Facing increasing competition from Dropbox, Google and others Microsoft has increased storage from 25 to 1 TB for OneDrive for Business customers:

  • OneDrive for Business storage from 25GB to 1TB per user.
  • All Office 365 ProPlus customers will get 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage per user as part of their Office 365 ProPlus subscription.
  • Microsoft will help organizations migrate data to OneDrive for Business

Historically OneDrive for business had been tied to Office 365. However, earlier this month the Redmond software giant started offering OneDrive for business as a standalone product. Microsoft currently has promotional pricing for new customers to OneDrive for business:

  • Introductory promotional pricing: $2.50 per user per month (a 50% discount on standard pricing, $5 per user per month).
  • For customers with Office with Software Assurance (SA) or Office 365 ProPlus: $1.50 per user per month.

    Maybe they now realize it was a bad idea to reduce the personal SkyDrive from 25GB to 7GB. They need to increase that again too and give those of us who subscribe to Office Home at least 100GB per account on top of the individual 25GB for just having a Microsoft Account.

      Exactly, they should remain competitive with Scroogle Drive. (>_<)

    I think it’s 100 GB and not 1 TB (1024 GB)

      Could be, though I’ve seen the 1 T.B. everywhere else, they’ve probably also made the same mistake. (–_–)

        Wait a minute… I still haven’t seen anyone else point this, the era of critically thinking is over, especially in the world of journalism. :-P

    I have like 50 GB on Cloud – for free… and like 5GB on OneDrive… this is insane.
    HTH MS want to be Cloud First with a “1.44 Mb floppy disk” … beats me.

    For ANY WP bought MS should allow at least 50 GB.
    For High End device 100 GB.
    For tablets 200 GB.
    For surface: 1TB.

    Now I hope that they’ll announce an increase for the basic free usage of Microsoft OneDrive soon, and allow it to back up non-Microsoft devices, then the rest would have to increase their minimum, Dropbox (in my personal opinion(s) (still) the best (and’ll ever will be)) has released tonnes of new special offers to help you increase your minimum amount for free, the same goes for Microsoft’s own consumer version of OneDrive, Scroogle Drive has 15 G.B. (though this also includes GMail mails, and Scroogle Picasa storage so it’s nothing but a marketing scheme), personally I hope to see OneDrive increase (the consumer version), backing up your FULL devices takes absolutely nothing from your ”storage space” in what you can use, and Outlook.com’s attachment- and mail-storage is completely independent, and so is ”My Windows Phone” from Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft not only have more cloud-services than Scroogle, it’s also better at it, it’s great to see them improve, now hoping to see them increase Microsoft OneDrive’s storage to 25 G.B. again. :-)
