Overview

OneDrive for Business is cloud storage for business similar to the personal experience provided by OneDrive. It’s the place where employees can store, sync, and share their files across multiple devices with ease and security.  Built through the evolution of personal sites, OneDrive for Business provides the ability for an organization to provide their users enterprise grade data mobility across devices and screens and includes both a synchronization client for offline availability and simple upload experience and a Web UX to manage content through the rich capabilities of SharePoint.
