OneDrive for Business to get unlimited storage for enterprise customers
Amid the brouhaha surrounding Microsoft's decision to backtrack on its offer of unlimited OneDrive storage for home Office 365 subscribers, one issue remained unaddressed: what about the related OneDrive for Business storage that's offered to enterprise Office 365 subscribers?
The company has finally laid out its plans for these users, and unlimited storage is back for at least some. Enterprise and government customers on the E3, E4, and E5 plans, education customers, and OneDrive for Business Plan 2 and SharePoint Online Plan 2 customers will all see their storage allocation increased provided that the organization has at least five subscribers.
This move to unlimited storage will be phased in two parts. The first part will be an automatic increase from the current 1TB to a new 5TB per user, expected to complete by the end of March 2016. Subsequently, customers will be able to request additional storage.
