What’s the difference between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business?

I understand that one (no pun intended) is intended for personal use and the other for business use, but what are the differences between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business?
Thanks for the previous answers. I am embarassed as the answer provided is so straight forward.
Read on if you are interested in what I have to say about Microsoft... Why couldn't Microsoft have figured that this would be a question new users would ask very soon after beginning an investigation of Onedrive. When is Microsoft going to create documentation that answers such an obvious type of question that prospective user would like, no - NEED, to understand? I will answer my question... they do not think like an end user or ask end users to review their website/marketing documentation! They continually throw you into a swamp of information that pleases their pompous technical butts but rarely ever provides a satisfactory answer. It looks great but leaves you with your head spinning with questions. I nearly always wind up finding a concise and understadable solution from other users such as you on some non-Microsoft website..... I apologize for the rant but his happens across all their product lines.
OneDrive is free, personal online storage that you can choose to use at home, work, or school.
OneDrive for Business is for organizations to provide online storage to their members.
David has a good answer posted already, but here's a link to the OneDrive support page in case you need more information:

The regular OneDrive offers 15GB of free storage, along with various other offers combined with hardware or software purchases.

The business version has plans that cost $5/user/month, and include various tools that businesses can use to manage their cloud storage and apps. This includes a terabyte of storage and online Office too. If you have a small business, this could be an attractive way to store your files.
