"Best Cloud Storage "

What do you like best?

The Android, iOS and Windows Phone apps all have automatic photo uploads, meaning that when you shoot a photo with your phone, it's automatically saved to your account. OneDrive's biggest strength is that it works closely with Microsoft Office apps, such as Word or PowerPoint, so when you launch one of those applications you'll see a list of recent documents saved to OneDrive. If you have an Office 365 subscription and open a document saved in OneDrive, you can collaborate on it in real time with other people.

What do you dislike?

In late 2015, Microsoft made an announcement that it would no longer offer unlimited cloud storage to Office 365 subscribers. Instead, they are limited to 1TB. Additionally, beginning in early 2016, the 100GB and 200GB paid storage plans will be discontinued, replaced with a 50GB for $1.99 per month plan. You will no longer get extra space if you allow the OneDrive apps to automatically backup photos on your phone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you work with sensitive information that really must be kept secret, Microsoft’s relationship with the NSA and may be unacceptable. A bigger concern is that consumer files aren’t encrypted in the cloud.

Really the decision is yours, although if you’re using Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 you’ll have to uninstall OneDrive manually.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Works seamlessly with Windows devices because it's built into the Windows operating system.

It's easy to open and edit files from OneDrive in Microsoft's other applications, such as Word or Excel.

Signing up for OneDrive gets you a Microsoft account, which gives you access to Outlook, Xbox Live, and other Microsoft services.

"OneDrive enables effortless backups and file-sharing"

What do you like best?

OneDrive's continuous backup functionality ensures that the data and files I need are always safe. I once had a work laptop stolen from me, but restoring all of my data to a new machine was incredibly easy, because OneDrive had backed up every last one of my personal files. I had a new machine restored with my backed-up files, and lost zero files as a result. I can also share large files and collaborate with my colleagues my sharing my OneDrive copy with them.

What do you dislike?

As files upload to the OneDrive server, there is the occasional conflict when a server copy is different than a local copy. Or, sometimes I am unable to use a file while it is uploading to the OneDrive server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our organization, we are using OneDrive for Business on all issued machines to ensure data and files are securely backed up. This integrates very well with the other Microsoft products we use daily. Files are continuously backed up and can be shared via OneDrive's online service.

"Onedrive Business, best cloud drive platfrom"

What do you like best?

Real-Time Collaboration

Accessible anywhere with internet access

Password Protected

Great for those who learn via reading/writing things down

What do you dislike?

Does not translate well for our people that use screen readers.

Also does not translate well to Braille, or back into text. We've had issues where words would be jumbled up into gibberish.

Will sometimes freeze, or lag behind if more than 3 people are viewing/editing a document at once.

Windows 7 support - The office system that I have is Windows 7 and when I use it, sometimes it doesn't sync. I don't know whether this is because it's Windows 7 or if it is a RIT network problem.

There should be an option to select one folder and manually sync in case the automatic sync isn't working. Once I worked on something and somehow the synchronization did not happen, so I had to create a dummy folder and delete it for the software to detect changes being made.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Some offices have Windows XP, Vista etc., installed, which might make it little but more harder to use OneDrive. Another situation is when a person has more than one account. I haven't seen any options to integrate two different accounts in the same computer. In an office space where sharing and collaborating is important, OneDrive works best in saving time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OneDrive was a great investment for us so that we were able to share documents and information that anyone could add to or use for their presentations and cases. My role in this is promotion on social media and facilitating communication, and OneDrive was amazing so that if there was an event being hosted or an online conference, fellow head volunteers could upload summaries and pictures for me to then organize and post almost immediately.

"Easy Sharing"

What do you like best?

One Drive makes it easy to manage Microsoft office documents , store data, and access from anywhere. It's secure and reliable even on the go from my mobile device to desktop. I like that any mobile device on the market can have access to it, ranging from laptops, tablets, mobile (iOS and Android) and integrates so well with Microsoft suite.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to negatively say about OneDrive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its the perfect tool to use when managing several clients. It makes it easy to share and access data, documents, images, videos and more. I would look into implementing OneDRive as as an on-premise platform installed on servers to alleviate employees from having access issues. Mobile apps for Android and iOS are also available to secure remote access to data regardless of the user's location. All of this and more is what makes this software an ideal platform for sharing even the most confidential of documents. I personally trust OneDrive to secure the integrity of my clients and have yet to experience any issues that can potentially put any of my documents at any risk (loss, wrongful access, hacking etc.)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File sharing is the key issue we are solving by using OneDrive. The most beneficial functions of it is how well it helps retain the integrity of files created using the Microsoft suite. Like many other clouds, this makes it easy to share and access cross-collaborative work.

"OneDrive - a matured cloud provider"

What do you like best?

OneDrive is part of the Office 365 offering, so each user in the organization has access to OneDrive cloud space under their account. In our company, OneDrive is used for personal work documents that users may or may not share with other users and/or the outside world. That's just our case use, but it is also the recommended way to use OneDrive per Microsoft. It allows the users to have their own cloud folder, so they can access their own files from virtually anywhere, and it keeps the general company repository separate from personal stuff.

What do you dislike?

Sync client (Windows) can continue to be updated such that it becomes even more stable

Mobile apps should be tweaked a bit more - they can be more intuitive

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Selective folder sync - you can easily pick and choose which folders sync to a person's computer

The actual file is not synced until it is needed - you see the file, but until you need it, it takes up no space on your device!

"Save your files in the cloud"

What do you like best?

OneDrive allows you to store your files quickly because you can have the desktop application for windows and directly there drag your files and folders and automatically upload them to the cloud, you can realize when the files are stored in OneDrive because the side of each folder you will see the drawing of a cloud with blue relief.

One of the great advantages is that the application exists as for IOS and Android and you can access the application from anywhere in the world with an internet connection or data, so you will always have access to the files that you consider most important.

What do you dislike?

To be able to increase the storage capacity of OneDrive you must obtain an office 365 subscription and they give you 1TB of storage. I currently have storage capacity of 105 GB thanks to a subscription I had from samsung, but only valid until 2020, what will happen to my files after this date? The truth is that I have no idea.

Recommendations to others considering the product

OneDrive is one of the great storage bets by Microsoft in which you can have total control of the files, photos, videos or music you store. Apart from viewing them through an internet connection, you can share and download the files stored there and have them locally on your device; without having the need of an internet connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best benefits you can get from storing your files in OneDrive is that you have the facility to take them anywhere in the world, whether accessing from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smarphone.

"OneDrive is highly efficient and secured cloud drive with reliable features. "

What do you like best?

OneDrive has easy features to upload and manage the content in the drive. It also offers enough storage at cheap subscription packages to regulate all the professional files and folders. This drive can also be used as a backup drive to save and secure the important files and content. Additional security , comes with mobile and email notifications. OneDrive has proven to be quite productive for us by bringing efficiency in sharing professional files and connecting with the colleagues.

What do you dislike?

OneDrive is integrated well with microsoft account, but the user-interface is somehow complicated to use. The uploading speed of content into this drive is also quite slow as compared to google drive. All other features are working efficiently providing reliable services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OneDrive is always my top priority to share files and folders with the professional community. Due to its professional outlook and fast access , it is a reliable tool to use as a storage drive . OneDrive has also kept in storage most of my essential files which are required every now and then for professional work. Overall, a great and trustworthy tool.

"My favorite software to keep my data and information."

What do you like best?

I am a huge fan of one drive. It not only helps you to create your data, but also assists in storing it. You can share your data with your colleagues as well. So by just one click away you can make, save and share. Thus a great platform to work with.

What do you dislike?

So far I am using this application, I have found no difficulties with this app. It is simply easy to use and very time saving.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great software to use and you can found everything in just a click away as all softwares of Microsoft are connected. So you don't have to make new IDs in all. thus it is very time saving.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For business, one drive is also connected with other microsoft softwares. I am a teacher and it helped me to connect with my boss who is in another city and called him right away and edited my file and submitted it. Thus onedrive saved my life and job.

"Great cloud to share all your files"

What do you like best?

Excellent cloud that synchronizes with all the programs of the Office suite. OneDrive offers great benefits when sharing a file or document, and you can add any file in any Office extension. Great mobility offered by this cloud can access all my files and shared from my smartphone, having support for both Android and IOS. It is super easy to configure the whole graphical interface and I like the sobriety in the colors and the schemes used. Uploading files is extremely fast and the capacity offered in the business version is overwhelming.

What do you dislike?

The security is not fully strengthened, I would like to have double authentication to enter Onedrive since from this platform you have access to many files that can be private and with a single attack all the security of the cloud is violated. Sometimes there are problems in the synchronization of files in the groups, there are cases of documents that are not loaded correctly and must be placed again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Onedrive if your company relies on Windows as the operating system, the synchronization is perfect with every element of Office. If security is paramount to you, think of another cloud or look for a way to add another layer of additional security in user authentication.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Onedrive to share everything with the rest of my colleagues, distribute lists, manuals, files, budgets, etc; It is much easier with this application. Also with the large capacity of 1 TB per account you can have a lot of information without needing to buy more for the moment. Since Onedrive is completely synchronized with Windows, making a Word document and sending it to another department is really simple.

"1TB de capacidad gracias al paquete Office, pero caro para pagarlo de forma individual."

What do you like best?

Hablamos de una buena aplicación para almacenamiento en la nube. En nuestro caso está incluida dentro de la suscripción de la empresa. Gran capacidad (1TB por cuenta), que permite la edición en línea de ficheros, cosa que sí es de agradecer. También cabe resaltar que es muy interactiva en compatibilidad con Teams, por ejemplo. No obstante, hablamos de una muy buena aplicación, fácil de utilizar y resaltar que tenemos la posibildad de versión web, aplicación de escritorio para Windows, iOS y Android.

What do you dislike?

Lo único que no nos gusta de la aplicación es el sistema de acceso. Pensemos que hablamos de accesos a agendas, correos electrónicos confidenciales... Se está haciendo mucho hincapié que Microsoft amplíe este sistema, ya que solamente pedir un usuario y una contraseña es algo bastante primitivo para poder acceder a aplicaciones de empresa. Quizás un acceso controlado por certificado digital, verificación en 2 pasos por SMS.. Algo, pero es algo que urge muchísimo en lo que a seguridad se refiere.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft va por el buen camino, siempre que puedan modificar y asegurar más los accesos. Igualmente, para hacer la compra individual creo que es bastante caro en comparación con Google, por ejemplo. Deben mejorar su oferta en ese sentido.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problemas no hemos tenido ninguno. Desplegar la aplicación fue algo muy fácil y gran parte de los usuarios habían utilizado este sistema a nivel personal. Hemos conseguido hacer la implantación completa en ordenadores y dispositivos móviles.

"One Drive Newbie"

What do you like best?

This is my first time using Office 365 and any of the "One" products. I do like that it's convenient to have all of my Microsoft Suite files in one place. I try to be organized but this provides a great way to assist with that. Its so easy to add files and documents into the one drive folder and then if I'm on the go and don't have my work computer with me I can access the documents from my phone! I'm all about convenience!

What do you dislike?

As of yet I haven't found anything that I dislike about it. Its very user friendly and easy to use. I am fairly new to using Microsoft 365 and so I'm new to using One Drive as well, but as of yet I'm happy with it

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say if you aren't sure how to use it there are good support tools within the software itself and there is always Google!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Staying organized and keeping files in one place. I don't normally take my work laptop home and so its great that I can easily access my work files from my phone in the even I get a call about something.

"OneDrive is the best!"

What do you like best?

What isn't there to like? Do you like storing your information on the cloud? Do you like huge amounts of storage to the cloud? Do you like being able to sync your cloud storage to your computer? Well, OneDrive does it all! I am a Google person, and I switched from using my Google account for cloud storage to using OneDrive exclusively. The ease of set up and the functionality is flawless, especially as a professional.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much I don't like with OneDrive. I think the only potential drawback is that OneDrive is a Microsoft product. Some users don't like using Microsoft products for one reason or another or don't like the permissions involved. Other than that, there are no real negatives to write home about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

OneDrive for Business is a one-stop-shop for your cloud storage needs!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to use OneDrive to store all my files across multiple workstations all with the ease of a login. I can get a file from anywhere in the world in seconds and the sheer storage amount I get is fantastic. I don't see myself using anything else.

"Excellent Data Management"

What do you like best?

I like One Drive because it makes storing files easy and accessible. I can access my files at any computer or device that I am logged into. I no longer have to worry about carrying around flash drives or storage devices. It also frees so much space from my computer's hard drive which I was having a problem keeping free space available on my computer.

What do you dislike?

Since using OneDrive I have not have any problems or issues with using it. It is very user friendly and simple to start using on all my devices.There is so much storage space that I can not foresee me ever having an issue with storage space ever.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend anyone to take advantage of using OneDrive. It has really helped me keep all my electronic files in one place. I can access them from any computer or device. It also allows you to share documents with other users, making it easy to collaborate on different documents and projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft OneDrive allows me to solve the issue of running out of space on my computer's hard drive. It also solves the problem of me having to remember to carry around a flash drive or storage device. This has tremendously helped me to save time and become more efficient.

"More than a simple email service"

What do you like best?

OneDrive for business is an incredibly fast tool, I can access hundreds of documents, in the cloud, in an instant way, and work with anyone, who owns the different Office tools, we can update and see the plans of our roads in real time, send maps and detailed routes to our drivers, who can see in their mobile devices, they also share us, real-time images of what they are seeing on the tracks, all thanks to OneDrive's fast connections in the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Some files that are not from the family of applications of Microsoft applications, sometimes are not compatible, and we must observe them, in other applications external to OneDrive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can have hundreds of documents and maps online at hand, to solve different problems, which our drivers have on the tracks, observing the best routes they have at the moment, if they need to make a detour, before it was impossible, to have so many documents to hand, but since they were digitized and are in the cloud, thanks to One Drive we can access them immediately.

"OneDrive is the most secured cloud storage with reliable sharing."

What do you like best?

OneDrive is a fully secured and encrypted cloud storage with whom I can entrust all my private and confidential files and data. This Drive supports easy to manage and upload files which supports all kinds of formats of files and docs. The access is also easy available and one can easily get approved account within minutes.

What do you dislike?

OneDrive at first hand, Offers only a limited storage space , which in long run gets short and additional storage have to be bought for additional price. Also, the sharing of zipped files are somehow difficult to get done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Onedrive is a secured drive for efficient storage of official and causal documents and files. It's quite affordable and easy to use drive with immense benefits.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Onedrive, I am fully capable of circulating the business docs with our clients as well as professional colleagues. The ease of using it for professional deliverance of docs and information in a fully secured and reliable way are the perks of using OneDrive.

"Como almacenamiento, genial. Como seguridad, mucho para mejorar."

What do you like best?

Hoy tratamos una aplicación de almacenamiento y edición de archivos multiacceso en la nube. Gracias al paquete Office 365 tenemos acceso a esta aplicación con 1TB de espacio por cuenta que nos permite compartir archivos e información en tiempo real, así como editar diferentes formatos de ficheros desde la aplicación, web o, incluso, teléfono móvil. Como reseñable en el aspecto positivo, resaltaría la variedad de posibilidades de acceso y la edición al encontrarse dentro del paquete office.

What do you dislike?

Pero no todo es bueno. Detectamos diferentes fallos, principalmente en lo que a seguridad se refiere. La opción de poder acceder a todos los perfiles simplemente con un usuario y una contraseña es algo que Microsoft debería plantear mejorar con urgencia, ya que con un mínimo ataque podría comprometer muchísima información. En nuestro caso, somos una empresa de telecomunicaciones, pero aún así podría ser accesible a intromisiones indeseadas gran parte de la información confidencial de la empresa: Desde facturas, expedientes, proveedores... Es algo que nos está haciendo plantear optar por algún otro tipo de almacenamiento en nube que tenga algo más de protección.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya hemos comentado, es un lujo tener 1TB de almacenamiento por cuenta, así como la opción de crear diferentes grupos para compartir según qué carpetas/ficheros, pero ratifico que la seguridad en el acceso es algo que microsoft debe priorizar si no quiere perder clientes por este motivo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es cierto que hemos podido centralizar los servidores de nube en Microsoft, pero sigue siendo un problema a la par que una prioridad que mejoren sus sistemas de seguridad en acceso: certificados digitales, verificación en dos pasos... Algún tipo de seguridad extra que aporte más confianza, al menos en su versión empresarial.

"Most Superior Cloud drive"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that files can be saved anywhere, anytime - you can upload any format of documents and save it instantly. The files are accessible on any device which has OneDrive almost instantly after uploading. It has proper folder structure (like Windows) and easy to keep files organised. There's also a mobile application on both iOS and Android, making it easy to send/receive files from your mobile device. It also offers 15GB of free storage when you first sign up, with a possibility of earning extra storage space, free of charge! It is definitely THE best cloud drive available right now.

What do you dislike?

There's not many dislikes I have for this software. The only concern I have is the unoccasional syncing glitch that sometimes occurs. Files sometimes don't sync fast enough and you turn your device off - these files won't be avilable on your other devices until that device is switched back on and completed the sync. OneDrive should properly notify you when something hasn't synced and you exit the application, this can cause problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd definitely recommend OneDrive to anybody who's looking for a cloud service, it's by far the most superior cloud on the market. It has all the essential features you would ever need and it's integrated with Windows 10.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using OneDrive to share files of various formats with different employees at work, and for my personal life also. The files are easy to organise and I always feel super confident knowing that my files are supported on a cloud, and aren't subject to things like hard drive failure.

"Accessible anywhere"

What do you like best?

Files can be saved and accessed anywhere internet is available. Especially on a PC, OneDrive can be downloaded, making it fast/easy to drag and save files or drag and download files e.g. from the Desktop to OneDrive folders. This process takes less than three seconds as opposed to accessing OneDrive on the web.

It is very easy to search for saved files.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there are glitches and it doesn't sync properly between the content on my computer and the server. My IT department is unsure why that happens. They usually fix it by remapping the OneDrive folder(s) to make it clear everything off my computer and sync the entire drive again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft OneDrive works best when the majority of users in your organization use it. This will make it easier to share files with one another via links, as opposed to emailing files back and forth.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Anyone who has been granted access to the Drive can access it anywhere. Any changes made are saved instantly. As a result, files do not have to be emailed back and forth but can be instantly accessed by those who have been granted access to the Drive. This obviously saves time and is very convenient.

For those who work from home, they can securely access OneDrive content by logging in via the internet. They do not have to carry their work computer back and forth. This makes it possible to work on work anywhere and any time.

"Availability and security of information"

What do you like best?

The best of OneDrive for business is the ease of sharing information with the users that you want to share, the availability of information in different ways media and platforms and the security of having your most important information backed up

What do you dislike?

The only element that I found in Onedrive for business that could be a disadvantage, is that like Windows, it has the limitation of not being able to create routes of more than 255 characters, which can generate some problem when transferring information from some media that have some users or if you migrate from a platform that does not have this limitation to another

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Onedrive for business is an extremely powerful and flexible tool for the distribution of content in business environments, in my personal experience both in terms of administration and use in our company, in terms of implementation, administration and use of the same, it was and has been very easy and without generating any type of impact, in the same way it has improved both the availability of the information, as well as the security of it, and has allowed us to streamline many processes that were previously quite complex.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Centralized and rapid distribution and administration of manuals and applications to our technical force outside the office.

2. Availability at any time and place of the information that our board of directors needs.

3. Space for the backup of important information outside our headquarters, in order to improve redundancy and more in these times in which there are various types of malware such as ransomware

"No está mal del todo. Aunque podría mejorar."

What do you like best?

Vemos una aplicación incluida en nuestro paquete Office 365 que nos permite 1TB de capacidad por cuenta profesional. Como puntos fuertes, valoramos positiviamente el poder editar archivos en línea, sobre todo los propios del paquete office. Del mismo modo, la integración con el resto de office es uno de sus puntos fuertes, aunque queda bastante por mejorar como comentaré más adelante.

What do you dislike?

No obstante, echamos de menos la integración de mejores visores PDF, así como que los Excel abiertos online no tengan problemas a la hora de ejecutar los macros que tienen. En local sí los ejecuta, pero en la apertura en línea desde la interzaz web, la mayoría de macros no es capaz de reproducirlos, cosa que obliga a tener que optar por alguna alternativa. No obstante, mejorando esos matices, podríamos tener delante una buena aplicación.

Otro punto en contra es que según nos consta, no se realizan backups por parte de Microsoft, por lo que en caso de pérdida de datos, tendríamos un serio problema.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he comentado, falta mejorar la seguridad, visores de PDF, ejecuciones de macros en Excel, pero va por buen camino. Falta un empujón final, pero van bien.

Del mismo modo, el precio del paquete Office, en el que se incluye ODFB, deberían revisarlo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hemos conseguido centralizar el almacenamiento de los ficheros de la empresa, aunque echamos de menos un extra de seguridad. Usuario/contraseña, para una cuenta profesional, es algo bastante débil que deberían mejorar.

"Buena aplicación para gestionar recursos desde la nube."

What do you like best?

Comprobamos que MS OneDrive for Business nos aporta prácticamente todo lo que necesitamos. Nos encontramos cuentas profesionales con 1TB de almacenamiento por cada una, a las cuales podemos acceder desde ordenadores, móviles, tablets y cualquier dispositivo que tenga una conexión a internet. Es un gran avance poder editar documentos Word, Excel y Access con guardado automático en la nube sin necesidad de preocuparse de salvar los datos manualmente, cosa que se agradece cuando se gestiona el departamento de recursos humanos de la empresa.

What do you dislike?

Algo que hemos mencionado en reuniones de equipo sobre OneDrive para empresas es la opción de poder habilitar una doble seguridad en el log-in. Pensamos que tratamos información muy comprometida, como pueden ser datos de trabajadores, proveedores, facturas, así como gastos-beneficios de la empresa, que pueden ser accesibles ante cualquier ataque informático. Por suerte somos una PYME, pero en caso de crecer, aún más, la cuestión de seguridad es algo que hemos pedido a Microsoft que revise. Me consta que desde nuestro departamento de Sistemas Distrubidos están en contacto directo con ellos, pero particularmente me gustaría reseñar este dato.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya hemos comentado, faltaría ampliar los protocolos de seguridad a la hora de poder acceder a según qué datos. Provisionalmente, hemos restringido su acceso a la red local, deshabilitando cualquier intento de acceso desde fuera de la VLAN de la empresa. Sólo la junta directiva tenemos acceso a la VPN de la empresa para poder acceder desde fuera.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No tuvimos problemas a la hora de implantar MS ODfB en la empresa. Gran cantidad de los empleados lo usan a nivel personal, por lo que la adaptación a nivel corporativo fue extremadamente simple. Se realizó un despliegue por parte de sistemas de actualizaciones on support virtuales que no generaron reportes negativos sobre esto, por lo que cerraría diciendo que no ha habido problemas.

"Sin duda, gran elección para almacenamiento y edición en línea."

What do you like best?

Adquirimos el paquete Office 365, en el que se incluyen cuentas de 1TB en OneDrive for Business. Gran aplicación, gran capidad (1TB por cuenta), opción de edición en línea de la mayoría de archivos y soporte tanto en versión web, escritorio y móvil. Todo un acierto por parte de la empresa adquirir este paquete.

Una vez analizada toda la información, la opción de poder enviar archivos directamente por email desde la nube o compartirlos abiertamente o a un círculo selecto de usuarios, le da un valor añadido extra que es de agradecer.

What do you dislike?

Quizás añadiría algo más de seguridad en los procesos de identificación. Hasta ese paso, tenemos capado el acceso a las cuentas desde el exterior, siendo posible, únicamente, desde el entorno VLAN de la empresa o bien a través de nuestra VPN. Estamos en contacto con microsoft para poder modificar estos parámetros y pedir un segundo nivel de seguridad: verificación por SMS, certificado digital... cualquier opción que nos pueda dar un extra de seguridad para los archivos almacenados en la nube.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he comentado, añadir algún sistema extra de identificación. Estamos en contacto directo con Microsoft para intentar desarrollar conjuntamente una verificación extra y aportar aún más seguridad a la nube empresarial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Por suerte no hemos tenido ningún problema. El despliegue fue sencillo y gran parte del personal sabía usarlo procedente de sus cuentas personales, por lo que fue un gran alivio poder ponerlo en producción desde el primer día.

"Gran inversión empresarial y gran manejo."

What do you like best?

Encontramos Microsoft OneDrive for Business en sus diferentes versiones: escritorio, móvil (Android e iOS) y, lo más importante, versión web. A través de ella, diferentes departamentos de la empresa podemos compartir información en tiempo real, pudiendo administrar documentos de manera online con salvado automático en la nube. Otra cosa que destaco de esta aplicación es la posiblidad de filtrar permisos y grupos en base a usuarios, pudiendo facilitar accesos personalizados a los diferentes recursos que se encuentran en la nube.

What do you dislike?

Como único punto negativo, pero con la finalidad de poder mejorar la aplicación, al menos en su versión empresarial, añadiría un sistema extra de seguridad al de usuario/contraseña. En según qué casos, podemos incluir información especialmente confidencial y un punto extra de seguridad en el acceso sería de agradecer: Verificación en dos pasos, SMS, vinculación con un dispositivo móvil.

Igualmente, existen sistemas de verificación en dos pasos como el de Symantec, que podría plantear la implementación e integración con MS OneDrive For Business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he comentado, añadiría algún sistema extra de verificación en el proceso de log-in. Al margen de eso, la aplicación es perfecta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No hemos tenido ningún problema en la implantación de la aplicación. La mayor parte de la plantilla está familiarizada con el uso particular de este servicio, por lo que no ha supuesto problema en la implantación profesional a nivel despliegue de recursos ni a nivel formación a usuarios.

"One dirver the microsoft cloud to save files"

What do you like best?

One driver an easy way to automatically backup the photos of the camera in the Android application this is one of my options that I use the most.

There is also the possibility of expanding the capacity of our OneDrive account free of charge up to 5 GB.

You have the possibility to save everything you want and make folders about the files.

in my experience I use it to keep important files of the company to presentations that I can easily share via invitations and you can see it from the cloud of one driver, I also share information about documents and excel files.

What do you dislike?

what I dislike is that you must pay to expand the 5 GB.

Recommendations to others considering the product

my recommendation with my experience I use it to save the files I use daily and it helps me full access in all parts of the world with Internet access, so I say it is useful because it avoids having a physical storage such as pendriver or external disk among other storage devices, we avoid this inconvenient and you have it at hand from the cloud, it is a useful tool and easy to use.

"Best Overall Cloud Storage Solution for Windows Users"

What do you like best?

Overall, Onedrive for Business is an overall great value. Onedrive for Business provides two platforms for customer's to utilize There's a web interface for uploading, downloading, and managing files and permissions allowing the ability to share with other users. For some more old school individuals, the seamless Windows 10 integration allows simple drag and drop from one folder to another to upload. It's also great for business's with the need to lock down file access and prevent files from being accessed outside your organization.

What do you dislike?

The sharing and permissions is still buggy at times. Because OneDrive for Business is essentially a private sharepoint file sharing site, your permission settings can become confusing and hard to manage. I've noticed problems with sharing with users outside of my organization and random links suddenly not working, or not working across all platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've found its crucial to follow Microsoft's recommendations with setting up Onedrive or any Microsoft cloud product. If its not setup correctly, the problems will follow you across to other integrated services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Onedrive for business offers a centralized location for storing files necessary to run my small business. I use it to share files with clients, and to be able to access files with on location.

"OneDrive is So Convenient"

What do you like best?

I love the convenience of OneDrive. I can access my files from any device or multiple computers. Plus, I know my files are always backed up. I also like the ability to quickly view a file online if I don't need a ton of features I can make quick changes right there.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes saving files can be a bit sluggish. If there are a lot of formulas, tabs, calculations, etc. in and Excel workbook it can take quite a while to save the file as it recalculates all the formulas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you pay attention to dates of the most recent file update and who made the last changes so that you know you are always working with the current file.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company uses OneDrive for file sharing. We all have access to everything we need at a moment's notice. If someone updates a file, it will let you know when it was last saved so you can always make sure you are working on the most recent file.

"We Couldn't Run Our Business Without It!"

What do you like best?

We are all remote and need to be able to share documents. This allows us to have public and private files without loading up our computer hard drives and relying on e-mail. It is always quick, never freezes, and I've never lost data.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I can't think of anything I dislike. The only thing that can be a little frustrating is that sometimes files can sort of get lost and you have to dig to find them and move them to the correct folder.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would die without Onedrive Notes! Everyone who is a note taker should definitely get the OneDrive suite.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connecting our company is not an easy task. We are spread out all over the west coast and only 3 of our guys are in are central office. The rest of us work from home. This allows us to keep all our reports in one central place and not lose any information if a computer crashes.

"Good way to share files "

What do you like best?

Useful to share files while giving presentation instead of storing it in outlook. Also, easy to access , no need of multiple drives to share files with different departments. You can control who can see those files.

What do you dislike?

Not much as of now as its been only a few months that I have started using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very Convenient in usage across the network. With so much storage available, I rarely use my local drives for file storage. I can easily use my large files for all presentation purposes just by logging into the network. Also, sharing a file with users is very easy. It syncs easily with SharePoint. I can sync the file with share point and it easily handles the updates between one drive and SharePoint securely. With Enormous cloud storage available, I dont think I would run out of space anytime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replaced multiple drives and used it in single drive. ease of use.

"A+ storage"

What do you like best?

Microsoft one drive is great. Its awesome. No complaints. It could store my car and I could not love it more. One drive allows for offline storage of your files which would take up valuable space on your computer. These files could keep you from saving your loved ones photos, video games, or even more files. However, uploading them to one drive keeps your computer clutter free and running smoothly

What do you dislike?

no dislikes here! sometime s one drive does not support upload of all file formats, and those formats seem to be quite large but as long as your computer never crashes you're good

Recommendations to others considering the product

do it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When computers unexpedly crash and have not been backed up for a while, onedrive comes in handy. It auto upoads your files fo ryou dso you do not have ot manually backup your computer ever again. IT automatically and quickly uploads all secure data.

"Accessible File Storage and Sharing"

What do you like best?

All our documents are backed up on the Cloud, so I don't have to worry about what would happen if something happened to our hardware. I also don't have to worry about progress being lost if we don't manually click save since it saves automatically.

What do you dislike?

I honestly don't have any personal critiques of OneDrive. Older people in our office sometimes struggle to get into the shared folder, but it is easy enough to guide them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can share a folder containing our most used files with all office staff so everyone has access to the most up-to-date versions. We can also collaborate on projects more easily since it syncs automatically. I used to host all of the documents for our small business on my computer and anytime someone needed a document, I had to either send it to them or print it myself. This alone has saved me a lot of time.

"Great File Storage & Collaboration Tool for Small Business"

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and allows all employees across multiple offices to share documents. Also, the ability to access documents from various devices easily provides greater efficiency among our small organization. The ability to share documents among different employees or all employees is a great feature. For example, we have some documents/folders that all employees can access and then others that just the executive management team can access. I like that the files are located in the cloud so we won't have to worry about a hard drive going out.

What do you dislike?

We had some bugs with the software when we first started using it and because of this some employees have been slow adapters. We don't always sync all of our documents/folders due to the size and the drain it can put on our computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend this product for a small business that is looking for a low cost solution for file storage needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Greater efficiency in accessing documents and the ability to collaborate easily among employees working in different locations. OneDrive has decreased the need to email documents to users and then have different versions of documents floating around. Prior to OneDrive, we used an external hard drive for file storage but the hard drive crashed and that is when we found that the redundant drive had some issues as well. We had to hire a company to get the data from the drives. We are a small company with no IT department so having OneDrive for Business works great for our organization.

"OneDrive Usage"

What do you like best?

What we like most about OneDrive for Business is how easily compatible it is with Microsoft Outlook, which is the platform we use for Emailing systemwide. Essentially there is no set-up involved, and everything syncs with incredible smoothness. We never have an issue with storage capacity, and we can always monitor whether or not teams have access to what we need.

What do you dislike?

The biggest dislike of OneDrive for business is with the Microsoft platform over all. The cloud version of documents, excel, and other programs doesn't allow for smooth editing and there's always loading delays associated with this cloud feature that we don't seem to have an issue with when using Google Drive and Dropbox.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say whatever could be done to improve processing performance, but perhaps that's a local issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest business problem we solve is cost. Because we're able to use OneDrive with our Microsoft Outlook agreement, we don't need our entire network of 500+ employees using and paying for Dropbox. Instead, OneDrive carries a heavy load of this work and allows us to exchange documents like lesson plans for review.
