Finally! Microsoft Lifts Storage Cap on Office 365 OneDrive
For some time the amount of storage you could have on OneDrive was limited to 1TB, meaning that you had to limit yourself on how much data you wanted to backup/store. With the news that soon there will be no storage cap, those days are over. You can start backing up and storing as many files as you like in to OneDrive and not worry about fragmenting data across multiple clouds.

You can expect to start seeing these changes to Office 365 Home, Personal and University, with more roll outs in the coming months. You can lower the time it takes for you to receive the updates for unlimited storage by clicking here. For OneDrive business customers, updates will be listed under the Office 365 roadmap and Office 365 First Release customers will start receiving updates starting in 2015.

So fill up your 1TB of storage because in the coming months you won’t be restricted anymore, letting you work limitless at the same monthly cost, but with even more benefits.

More and More IT Executives are leaning towards
Managed Service Providers
Times are changing and as more technology strives to help businesses, it also can create more complications if you don’t have the right knowledge in your firm. That’s where managed service providers such as brightstack come in to help mitigate these turbulences in your company. That’s why 45% of respondents in a survey from 2nd Watch said that they currently use MSP’s to help them migrate and/or manage their public cloud workloads.

There have been other studies showing this increase in demand for MSP’s, MarketsAndMarkets, a major research based firm, earlier this year predicted that MSP’s market worth will grow from 143 billion to 246 billion by 2018.

With cloud computing technology ever evolving and weaving more in to the fabric of our lives and offices, the need for true experts has never been greater, with brightstack at the forefront of providing services related to all IT needs currently and in to the future.
