SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint Shared With Me Updates

Here's just a quick update for you all...

Microsoft announced yesterday that SkyDrive Pro users would now receive 25 GB instead of 7 GB of storage by default.  That number can be increased up to a total of 100 GB.  The additional storage comes out of your SharePoint Online storage pool.

The total storage available to each user is now 25 GB of SkyDrive Pro storage + 25 GB of  email storage + 5 GB for each site mailbox you create + your total available tenant storage, which for every Office 365 business customer starts at 10 GB + (500 MB x # of users).

You can purchase additional storage for SharePoint Online for $.20 per GB up to the tenant maximum of 25 TB.  Quota maximum is 100 GB per Site Collection.

The second announcement was an improvement in visibility for all documents that have been shared with you.  See the full details of the announcement at SkyDrive Pro increases storage and ease of sharing.

And Now for Something Completely Different - Moving to Microsoft

Changes Coming...

Over the last 2 years over 1,300 of you have followed me on Twitter, I've had 74,000+ page views on this blog reading 83 published articles and I've interacted with many of you through comments here or on LinkedIn.

And now for something completely different: Microsoft.  It has been a career goal for me to work at Microsoft for almost 15 years and that goal has finally been realized... last week I started at Microsoft as an Account Technology Strategist working in the Kansas City Microsoft office.

In the months ahead I plan to continue to post informative, well written articles on cloud services, as that is still a large part of my job.  However, I will not be concentrating solely on Office 365 the way I have been.  Expect articles about other cloud services like Azure as well.  And in the not too far distant future I plan to update the look and feel and possibly the "brand" of the blog as well.

I hope you all stick around.  The best is yet to come... I plan to use my new perspective to bring even more interesting and relevant content to you in the days ahead.  It will probably take me a few weeks to get on my feet... there's a LOT to learn here, but I love it so far and know it will be as good as I've always hoped.

In the meanwhile, come connect with me on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter.  I will continue using Twitter as a funnel for industry cloud computing news and for announcing new articles here on my blog.

Thank you for your readership, see you soon!
