The University of Georgia has expanded its services with Microsoft’s Office 365 platform to include OneDrive for Business, a cloud-based solution for storing, syncing and sharing files.
Along with UGAMail and calendar services, Office 365 for all UGA students, faculty and staff now includes OneDrive for Business under the same account.
OneDrive for Business makes it easy to collaborate with multiple people on files across different web browsers and operating systems, including iOS. OneDrive for Business also features 1 TB of file storage for each individual with an account.
