Microsoft unleashes the cloud with OneDrive for Business upgrades and 1 TB of storage

OneDrive is increasingly becoming a centerpiece for Microsoft in 2014. The service is being woven throughout all of Redmond’s services, from consumers to enterprise. It’s the latter one that we’re concerned with today as OneDrive for Business is getting some free new perks for those who use the service.

Announced on the Office Blog, the ‘thinking outside the box’ post details three major changes that should make OneDrive for Business even more popular.

OneDrive for Business new features

  1. Increasing OneDrive for Business storage from 25GB to 1TB per user.
  2. All Office 365 ProPlus customers will get 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage per user as part of their Office 365 ProPlus subscription.
  3. We’ll help organizations migrate data to OneDrive for Business

Sounds like a bold plan to us. If your company uses OneDrive for Business or you’re thinking of switching, you can read more from Microsoft about those changes and other features of the service. And don’t forget to grab the OneDrive for Business app for Windows 8.1!
