Microsoft Doubles OneDrive Cloud Storage

Microsoft is now offering 15GB of storage for users who have a OneDrive account—that’s double its usual 7GB offering, and matches Google Drive’s storage. Office365, Microsoft’s subscription version of Office, will now come with 1TB of cloud storage space, up from the usual 20GB.

Soon, users will be able to purchase 100GB of OneDrive storage for $1.99 a month (down from $7.49), and 200GB for $3.99 (down from $11.49).

Most recently, Microsoft launched the Office Suite for iPad, while Apple updated iWork for the cloud. The online productivity application wars are heating up and we’ll be keeping an eye on them as they unfold.
