Microsoft will extend its offer of 1 TB of OneDrive storage to all versions of Office 365, including the 5-person home version that costs $9.99 per month and the personal version costing $6.99 per month.
Microsoft said the landscape for online services is quickly changing and that merely providing cloud storage is table stakes. By providing 1 TB with Office 365, Microsoft effectively supercedes the storage-only providers. For those who only want online storage and not Office 365, OneDrive pricing has been cut 70% to $1.99 for 100GB and $3.99 for 200GB.
- In April 2014, Microsoft first announced the 1TB cloud storage deal for Office 365 ProPlus subscribers.
- In its latest quarterly report released in April, Microsoft stated that Office 365 revenue grew over 100% year-over-year, and commercial seats nearly doubled, demonstrating strong enterprise momentum for Microsoft’s cloud productivity solutions.
