Microsoft recently announced that it is increasing storage per user for its OneDrive for Business offering, where the company touted that its cloud services provide organizations with a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for creating, sharing, and storing documents in the cloud. With this in mind, what distinguishes OneDrive from its enterprise and consumer competitors? Microsoft has provided us with some key characteristics that makes it different from its competitors:

Office integration. One of the most positive benefits to using OneDrive for Business, is its integration with Office documents. Users can easily discover and collaborate together with OneDrive’s real-time synchronization and co-authoring capabilities.

Office Graph. Coupled with Office 365 and OneDrive for Business, Microsoft’s new Office Graph feature, helps improve productivity by showing users only what they need to see through intelligent machine learning techniques.

Compliance and security. Through Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business service, the company has provided enterprise-level compliance and admin controls thanks to the Office 365 SLA. Additionally, the company has made strides in providing security, auditing, and information protection across OneDrive for Business so that organizations can carry out their tasks with confidence.
