Hi, I’m Ben Tamblyn, product manager for SharePoint Online.
This is the first of a series of blog posts to show you what’s possible with SharePoint Online in Office 365. Over the next 4 weeks we’ll take you on a journey through the new SharePoint Online service we’re providing as part of Office 365.
SharePoint is well known to many of our enterprise customers who have been getting great value from SharePoint for many years but with the launch of the public beta of Office 365, many smaller businesses may be trying SharePoint for the first time. When I speak to many smaller businesses I often get asked: What is SharePoint?
At its core SharePoint Online is a central place to share documents and information.
So, what can you do with SharePoint Online?
Because it’s designed to work with familiar Office applications it’s easy to save documents directly to SharePoint and work together on tasks and projects in real-time because you have access to the documents and information you need from virtually anywhere.
The overview video below provides a closer look into some of these capabilities.
In the next post, we’ll show you how easy it is to set up your SharePoint Online environment and get started.
If you want to dive into more how-to details SharePoint Online, take a look at the Help & How-To section and watch these videos to learn more about the services in Office 365 for small businesses. Similar help and video resources exist for Office 365 for Enterprises here and here respectively.

Can SharePoint Online generate a public link or somehow share files to users outside of the organization? Something many other online services provide; e.g., Box.net, Dropbox. This would help with controlling huge email attachments.
I'm curious about this too; public, better secure, online file sharing.
@Ken and @ K@PF - check out the video above @0:58 He talks about external sharing and controlling who can access read and share documents, internal or external. Hope this helps.
Are there plans for SharePoint Online to integrate with CRM 2011? Currently, the two systems are not "talking" and it's creating quite the bottleneck in our company's plans to deploy a completely cloud based CRM system.
I'm interested in how SharePoint Online connects to an (authenticated) search engine so stored content can be found again (PS: I do know O365 has a built in search)
Is there any way I can some real information about the final specs for SharePoint 2010 Office 365. As of now the E3 beta pricing gives you10 gb of data, 500 mb per user, additional pricing $2.50 per GB / month, a limit of 100 GB per site collection, 300 site collections and a max of 5 TB per organization. It doesn't support business data connectivity services, performancepoint, and the Business Intelligence Center.
I am new to the cloud, and I am trying to develop a project in Sharepoint 365 which includes using Bing Maps to display a sharepoint library in a Silverlight webpart.
I have Infopath forms which update SharePoint libraries with address information. I want to display those addresses in a Silverlight webpart.
Everything I have read about Bing mapping requires access to server. How can I integrate these, or is it not possible in the beta version?
We are trying out Office365 at the E3 level. There are currently Web Parts to connect to Outlook in many different ways, but I can' find any information regarding integrating Online SharePoint with the Online Exchange that is part of the package. We would love to have Outlook task integration, but I have no idea what the server is that I should connect to. Any ideas?
You didn't mention creating Web Databases with SharePoint Online in your post. Here's a link to a detailed Webcast: accessindepth.blogspot.com/.../learn-how-to-create-access-web.html.

sir, Can anyone give me reply , How i can add my friend to the onmicrosoft domain?
@MichaelV - I'd recommend taking a look at the SharePoint Online beta service description.
@CarryMegens: I’d love to understand more about what you’re looking for here.
You’re right the SharePoint Online includes a great search experience allowing you to search for documents and people easily. With the upcoming Office 365 release we’re also introducing search refinement making it easier to narrow down your search query for specific document types, authors, or even when the document was created. We’ll spend some time specifically on search in a follow-up video.
@Roger Jennings: Stay tuned for a follow-up video as part of the series on how you can use Access Services.
You can create a Silverlight or AJAX-based application that can work on SharePoint Online and you pull data from a document library in much the same way you do from a list: using the SharePoint client object model. My colleague Steve Fox has a blog post on this.
