Microsoft OneDrive

Starting April 1, 2014, Microsoft will be offering OneDrive, their cloud storage technology for new business users. It is already part of the Office 365 suite. A standalone service will charge for OneDrive itself and bundle it with the free Office Online suite of web apps. Users of the standalone OneDrive for Business service offering will have access to 25GB of storage capacity per user, with the option to purchase more. Between April and September, Microsoft will charge only $2.50 per user per month, which is a 50% discount. If you already have Office 365 ProPlus, it will cost $1.50 per user per month.

Those who will use OneDrive will find the new simplified control scheme, which places the most common tasks directly above the document folder, including creating new Office documents, uploading files, and syncing them for offline use. The web app also added site folders for sites within a particular organization, and improved search with type-ahead features. Some other improvements include, advanced auditing and reporting features, extensibility improvements, encryption at rest, data loss prevention (DLP), and even higher storage limits.
