OneDrive Business – What is it?

onedrive businessOneDrive Business is an application which is integrated in to Office 365 and offers a personal place in the cloud for you to store, share, and sync all your work related files. Allowing you to update and share you files on any device with the app installed. This includes MacOS, iOS, Windows 7, 8 or 10 or Android.

What can it do for your business?

You get an impressive 1TB of storage in the Microsoft Cloud with your Office 365 account. Should your organisation have a SharePoint server in place this space can more or less be allocated to your OneDrive for Business account.

OneDrive for Business storage is for personal files and will always be private unless you choose to share them. You can share files and folders with specific users and colleagues allowing collaboration and review; and switch back to private when you need to.

Your OneDrive for Business drive can be synced with your local computer which would ensure that all your files and documents which normally reside on your notebook or desktop are safely backed up in the cloud should you lose or damage your device.

It is important to note that OneDrive for Business is not the same as the standard OneDrive application. OneDrive for Business is managed through your organisation’s Office 365 account which means your IT administrator will have the ability to control and restrict usage policies.
