Today, we are excited to announce that Office 365 is moving to public beta status! Last fall, we introduced Office 365 to the world, and the response was amazing. More than 100,000 organizations, big and small, signed up for to help us test-drive our latest service. Today, we make the beta available to millions more people in 38 countries and regions in 17 languages. You can secure your spot in the beta at www.office365.com, and if you have already signed up to beta test, hold tight because your invite is coming soon!
Customers are already using Office 365 and loving it in the limited beta. Check out this story for some great examples from Dallas Neurosurgical, a small medical practice, and David Kroenke, an independent textbook author. Office 365 has struck a chord with small businesses like these. In fact, more than 70% of those who signed up for the Office 365 beta were small businesses!
Announcing the ‘Ready for Work’ Contest
We’ve been so inspired by these and other stories from small businesses that today we’re launching the “Ready for Work” contest. Five small businesses will win $50,000 each and Office 365 free for a year!* Best of all, we will send one of our executives to work for you – or a charity of your choice – for a day. No task too big or small. We want you to know that we stand behind Office 365, and our team is ready to work for you.
So, go check out our Facebook page and tell us your story. We want to hear:
“What inspires you to work every day and how can Office 365 help you achieve your business vision in the next 365 days?”
Simply submitting your 365 word (or less) story enters you for a chance to win one of five Windows Phones each week. So, don’t wait. Share your story today.

Got an email to signup after a long wait but Australia is not on the list??????
Office 365 rocks! we are loving it.
Can existing BPOS customers signup for the beta and transition?
Will default page move to /Pages/default.aspx when we move our site to Office 365?
Does it impact to SEO rank?
@comforu, I'm a OLSB customer as well. Yes "/Pages/" formed url is the default in Office 365. At least in this Beta. Keep in mind that Office 365 is focused on the public beta & launching the service to new customers. Later this year we should hear more about how they plan to offer Office 365 to existing OLSB customers. I wouldn't be surprised if Office 365 gets an update to address a number of Office 365 issues in migrating existing OLSB sites. So stay tuned.
@Monica, vishalag: Thanks, glad you are excited, we are too!
@ericm: Check out the transition center for more details:
@Comforu.com: JohnCz is right. More information will be available as we get out of beta of our service. We would never transition a fully working service into a beta product and we will give you plenty of time and details on how to move to Office 365.
Woops missed the link for the transition details: www.microsoft.com/.../transition-center.aspx
When will Australia get access? i have the invite email - couldn't they tell from the address that it was an Australian address?
It is working now... for some reason it did not want to work with the xp box I have at work... came home and it setup fine.
Far as SharePoint, I have a Windows Phone... the Sprint Arrive. Love the phone but the reason I got it was to connect to sharepoint. My online exchange service, www.apps4rent.com/ , never could get it to work.
After researching online, it seems that Windows Phone does not work with places like apps 4 rent... seems like a bait and switch when it comes to sharepoint.... felt like I'd been tricked. It makes little sense that a Windows Phone 7 would not work with sharepoint 2010. :-(
That is the failure the guy above was speaking... and the same I'm speaking about. What is the point if I can't grab my documents off my phone.
Even further, where does that leave your partners, like apps4rent?
I just don't get MS sometimes... love windows phone 7 though... can't wait for mango. lol
@Allen_MSFT: You said that the beta is not being offered in Ausralia at the moment however the Office 365 Beta FAQ says that it is available. I assume this is something to do with the Office365 only being offered by the Telstra T-Suite or only direct from Microsoft for voulme license customers as shown on the Office 365 site.
I really don't understand why Microsoft had to agree to the silly exclusive partnership with Telstra. I am not a volume license customer as I won't be buying over 100 seats and there is no way I will be buying from the incompetent Telstra, looks like I have no choice but use Google Apps. Can't Microsoft just let us Australians choose to deal with Microsoft directly and not just allowing volume license customers bypass Telstra? My company is a Microsoft partner so I would of thought we would have some sort of priority access to the beta. Looks like Australian partners are out of the loop in regards to accessing the beta as well.
Anyone know the limits on Sharepoint (small business)? Looking for size of file, space, etc... tried to upload a document and it claimed I did not have enough space.
@Luke: Agree so much!
@Allen_MSFT: I'm an existing BPOS customer but I'm not on Telstra's network (and won't be until their charges drop to a level where they are remotely competitive). Will I be forced off the cloud when the existing BPOS services are decommissioned? Not so worried about the availability of the Beta anymore. This is a show stopper for most small businesses, so I won't be able to sell many services.
Sigh... was also excited to receive my invite email, but no Australian in the list to sign up for the beta. (even though the FAQs say otherwise) Tempting to just click US and see what happens... I thought this might be a great opportunity for our community organisation. :-(
