It looks like Microsoft is rewarding their Office 365 customers. They will be giving Office 365 subscribers free unlimited cloud storage via its OneDrive service. This roll out will begin immediately and will continue over the next few months. That means that you can get unlimited storage on OneDrive for as low as $6.99 a month with a Office 365 Personal subscription.
While cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Box.net, SpiderOak, and more offer decent ways to store a few gigabytes of data for free, once a user passes that free mark, the price for storage increases significantly. Rather than pay a monthly fee, someone smart thought, why not use a user’s existing home network for storage instead?

With this mission, they are bringing in the Transporter Sync. The Dropbox-like functionality of this will remain similar to that of its predecessor which can be termed as the bigger version of this one. Because of this feature, users will no longer be bound and tied with the annoying subscription fees.
To summit it off, Microsoft have also been advertising the “cloud” while they claim it can give the console much better computing power, and definitely a better storage as well. Xbox one can now make use of the limitless sized hard drive space online, our gratitude to Microsoft for permitting users to tap huge amount of servers they’ve setup for the console and Office 365.
