06:12 EDTMSFTMicrosoft increases online-file storage available for Office 365, OneDrive
Microsoft announced in a blog post an increase in the online-file storage available for business versions of Office 365 and OneDrive, the company’s workplace document software and storage service. The company is increasing OneDrive for Business storage from 25GB to 1TB per user. The company says all Office 365 ProPlus customers will get 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage per user as part of their Office 365 ProPlus subscription. Microsoft says "Today’s business leaders are looking for ways to unleash their employees’ potential for greater impact, freed from limitations imposed by time and place. That’s one of the reasons that businesses are embracing the cloud to accelerate business performance while providing new, flexible ways for employees to collaborate and securely access data and documents. Of course they’ve been doing this for some time, but often in a piecemeal fashion. One department selects a line of business app, another signs up for some compute cycles, and a third adds some productivity tools. But the era of making isolated, single-solution decisions is rapidly coming to a close. Smart businesses are now choosing partners that have a holistic, comprehensive and connected set of cloud offerings and in doing so, creating a 'data culture' in their organization." Reference Link
