Microsoft has this week announced that it is increasing the cloud storage limit to its corporate clients for its OneDrive for Business and Office 365 ProPlus services, increasing the cloud storage available to users from 25GB to a massive 1TB per user.
The move by Microsoft hopes to make its OneDrive and Office 365 ProPlus services more competitive when compared to the likes of Dropbox and Box.
Microsoft explains : ” File sync and share solutions represent key capabilities that keep people on the same page and responsive. There are several solutions offered, many from companies that have sprung up to focus exclusively on this market.
Some have come from the consumer world and are new to the enterprise software market and the requirements around delivering enterprise-grade cloud services. Others are focused on the enterprise, but only as a point solution.
Few are prepared to meet the evolving needs of businesses looking for a holistic and comprehensive approach to meeting the full needs of their employees as they live a cloud first, mobile first workstyle.”
Recently Google and Yahoo have also lowered the cost of storage for users with Yahoo now offering 1TB of storage on Flickr, and Google has slashed the prices for its cloud storage for users.
