What’s the difference between Onedrive for Business and “normal” Onedrive?

Microsoft offers a version of Onedrive for businesses named, creatively, Onedrive for Business. How does Onedrive for Business differ from the version of Onedrive offered for individual use, aside from pricing additional storage space?

What is OneDrive for Business?

"OneDrive for Business is a personal library intended for storing and organizing your work documents. As an integral part of Office 365 or SharePoint Server 2013, OneDrive for Business lets you work within the context of your organization, with features such as direct access to your organization’s address book.

NOTE OneDrive for Business is different from OneDrive, which is intended for personal storage separate from your workplace. OneDrive for Business is also different from your team site, which is intended for storing team or project-related documents."

The business version actually has a different lineage. It was Groove, then Sharepoint Workspace, then Skydrive Pro, and now it has become OneDrive for Business. What many people do not realize is that OneDrive for Business is actually connected to the Sharepoint platform. In fact, the business version of OneDrive differs based on whether you use the cloud or on-site version of Sharepoint. 

 

“Regular” OneDrive is a completely different offering that doesn’t even share the same development team. It is simply a file storage and syncing tool.
