Microsoft, the technology company we’ve long known, has always been busy providing consumers with various software and applications.

Cloud Storage for Business

OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive) is its take on cloud storage service. A service that started in 2007, apart from the branding, the cloud service has already evolved in terms of features and interface. What once started as a service for consumers has also expanded for the business sector. It’s for a fact that businesses have a huge requirement for storage, and unlike traditional storage hardware, cloud storage comes in as a cost-efficient solution for businesses.

This year, part of the revamps Microsoft made for OneDrive for Business is to put the app as a standalone application (It previously was part of the Office 365 application suite) while still having access to online Microsoft Office suite through Office.com.

The OneDrive for Business solution that is available today offers a very straight-forward interface on storage and collaboration. On the OneDrive folder, a team member can easily see all of his saved documents. But apart from that files are also sorted according to documents shared and recently opened and edited files for easy access.

On top of the window appears function keys so a user can easily do a task such as create, upload, sync or edit a file. In addition to this, OneDrive allows offline edits which can be synced.

Apart from the web app, Microsoft has also made a OneDrive for Business app available on iOS which ensures security through more types of authentications. Microsoft Says more features are coming to OneDrive including auditing and reporting features, encryption and added storage. OneDrive for Business offers 1 TB of storage for $2.50 per user per month with an option to get more space at $0.20 per GB. Learn More
