Office 365 ProPlus Adds OneDrive For Business Access

One of the peculiarities of online storage platforms is that consumers are often given access to features ahead of paying business customers. And so it proves with the enterprise-focused ProPlus version of Office 365, which is belatedly adding support for OneDrive for Business.

Microsoft says it has begun rolling out OneDrive for Business access to Office 365 ProPlus customers, and expects that process to be finished by the end of January 2015. Remarkably, while ProPlus is the second-most-expensive version of Office 365 (it costs $17.40 per user per month in Australia), it’s the only one which hasn’t included OneDrive support.

Last month, Microsoft announced plans to offer unlimited OneDrive storage to all Office 365 customers, but said it would take a while. Underscoring that point, Office 365 ProPlus customers will initially receive 1TB of OneDrive storage when OneDrive for Business is provisioned, which will be expanded at a later unspecified date.
