So this was rather unexpected… or perhaps I just hadn’t read the writing on the wall as Microsoft takes a cue from competitors to up their cloud storage offering. Starting with Home, Personal and Education Office 365 accounts, Microsoft will be offering unlimited storage for OneDrive for Office 365 customers.
It would seem that this will be starting out with consumer OneDrive accounts – based on the announcement, it’ll eventually be there for OneDrive for Business users (maybe?), or so it hints at in the blog post by the OneDrive team.

So if you’re a Google, DropBox, Amazon, or Apple user and you’re looking to cut costs, maybe this is the time to go out and pick up an Office 365 Personal or Home subscription key card from Amazon.com. Yes, I realize it’s not instantaneous gratification and requires you to wait a few days for the card to arrive, but it saves a little cash that you can use toward that Surface Pro 3 that you were going to buy, right? 🙂
