Microsoft has just announced in a recent blog post that it will be making unlimited storage space available in all versions of OneDrive. The roll out will start immediately for consumers with the OneDrive for Business customers expecting to see upgrades in 2015. You can read more about the announcement here:
In many respects this announcement, which will no doubt be matched by larger competitors, signals that cloud storage no longer provides any competitive advantage. It also indicates that business solely focused on storage like Dropbox and Box.net may struggle in this new world where unlimited storage is free.
What it means for end users is the fact that you now get more for less whether you are using OneDrive or OneDrive for Business. The major issue still remains of getting all that information actually up to the cloud (or down if you need it). Australia is somewhat hamstring by poor bandwidth limits that in the new online age are beginning to count more and more against us.
