First it was a terabyte of storage, and now Microsoft has one-upped itself, announcing today that its offering unlimited storage for Office 365 customers. The offer includes both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, according to Chris Jones in a post on the OneDrive blog, and is “rolling out over the coming months”. If you’re a current Office 365 customer you can put your name on a mailing list to “put yourself at the head of the line”. Currently there’s no change in storage limits for OneDrive users without Office 365 accounts, but Microsoft seems to be intent on putting pressure on rival services like Dropbox and Google Drive, so we doubt we’ve seen the last of these storage wars.
The unlimited storage offer applies to Office 365 Home, Personal or University, and even without Office (which is quite a perk!), unlimited storage for less than $7 a month is the best deal in the business (at least if you’re planning on storing lots of stuff in the cloud).
