A few weeks ago, we shared exciting news about OneDrive for Business.

We’re pleased to announce that the new standalone OneDrive for Business subscription plan is now available!


How do I get OneDrive for Business?

The new OneDrive for Business standalone plan is available via two promotional deals over the next six months, starting today, April 1st, through September 2014. *

Here are the pricing details for the standalone plan:

  3. Max Fritz

    Will a company that signs up for this have the ability to upgrade to a full Office 365 Enterprise plan if they want?

  4. Hi Julia,
    nice to hear. A question about pricing:

    Costs for 50 GB extra space per year:
    – OneDrive = 19,- Euro
    – OneDrive for Business = 96,- Euro

    When will the price level for OneDrive for Business be fixed? This is a big topic not to use it especially for business use and the need of a hugh amount of space.
    Can you give us an update here?

    BR, Fritz

I am trying to sign up for a trial of OneDrive for Business to evaluate if this is the best option for the company i work for however unfortunately Australia doesn’t seem to be among the long list of other countries available to choose from. has someone mistaken Austria with Australia or is there a reason why Australia has missed out?

    • Hi Jim,

      Last week at the European SharePoint Conference i witnessed the beta version of OneDrive for Mac. I can’t wait to have it installed on my MacBook.
      Microsoft says it’s being released in the 2nd half of 2014. But of what i’ve seen my guess is it will be Q3 and not Q4 of this year.

  15. We have OneDrive for Business installed on our computer for business use, and I need to access my personal OneDrive account. Should I install both versions of OneDrive or can I use OneDrive for Business to access both our business account and my personal account?
