Following their rebranding of their SkyDrive service to OneDrive, Microsoft has today expanded their storage service with the separation of their new OneDrive For Business solution, which will launch on April 1st.
The service will be priced as a stand-alone cloud storage solution, aimed specifically with corporate customers in mind, and charging users only for what they use rather than a fixed fee, or being included with their Office 365 Suite or SharePoint online.
The service will be available with existing Software Advantage or Office 365 ProPlus agreements for $1.50 per user per month, granting each user a max storage space of 25GB.
“Not only is OneDrive for Business a simple and intuitive file sync and storage solution for employees, it’s a trusted service that provides enterprise-grade content management, compliance, and administrative controls, and it is financially backed by the industry-leading Office 365 Service Level Agreement,”
Microsoft say that they already have around 250 million accounts registered to the OneDrive service, but they aim to increase this further by making the service more valuable to users.
