OneDrive is extremely well suited for internal use. It's an easy product to utilize across teams and departments within an organization to share the most up-to-date information. It is a great information-sharing space. Syncing is quick and easy so that everyone has the most current information. It's easy to navigate and very intuitive, as part of the Microsoft suite. It is an appropriate cloud-based application to share private data and all other collaborative documentation for a company.

OneDrive is the best online platform where I can save my files and other documents. I can also segregate as many folders much as I want. Another thing, you can't store a heavy file in it. So, I won't recommend storing large files on OneDrive.

OneDrive is great for easily backing up personal files. The autosave feature is key. It gets tricky when there are many users sharing the same account editing documents as there can be some sync issues.

Onedrive's reliable cloud storage features are invaluable for sharing documents and files across team members. The app support and updates are all great and works well on multiple OS and mobile platforms. With office 365 the bundled storage of 1TB is more than sufficient for major uses and I can manage without spending much on high configuration laptops with larger SSDs.

When there is an analysis or presentation that needs to be done in a limited time, the fact that everyone checks [in] and works at the same time provides great efficiency. It [OneDrive] is also very easy to comment and assign a task on it. It is also very effective to receive notifications by e-mail.

OneDrive is well suited for smaller companies where people save most of their files on their local computers, but still need a backup solution to protect themselves from losing their files. OneDrive is not a great solution if you are not constantly connected to the internet and can keep any files you are sharing with others in sync all the time.

OneDrive is perfect for backing up data, sharing files among team members, its weak point is quite average speed of processing some data in the interface for example I recently encountered a significant delay while opening project documentation

OneDrive will bring much convenience to your lives by managing all the digital assets of your organization. I recommend you to have OneDrive instead of wasting time and money on buying any other tool for collaboration. Its mobile application is very much helpful. Its speed for uploading files will attract you indeed.

One Drive is suitable for storing and/or organizing documents that are not that confidential. It frees up spaces in my local machine so instead of saving my not-so-important files on the hard drive, I just simply upload them to OneDrive. I would not recommend users to upload confidential files or documents in this platform especially in file-sharing of confidential documents with your colleagues for its security is not the best.

For a low cost, easy to use backup system, OneDrive is outstanding. It has a very low cost per terabyte of storage, and is easy use from the outset. For a small business or office, it is ideal as files can be easily shared (or not) between the employees. I cannot think of a situation where it is not appropriate...except if you have poor or expensive internet connectivity in which case the constant data transfers and updating could become problematic.

Best suited for cloud storage of documents and data loss prevention with its highly reliable security protocols. The free plan is not the best for storing and working on tons of files. They have very affordable rates so users can upgrade to higher plans whenever they require more storage space.

1) When it comes to accessing the file anywhere across the globe and using any of the devices.
2) To storing as well as organizing the work documents in a secure location in that of the cloud.
3) To make a real time work by collaborating and sharing the document with others.
4) Has 1 TB of store per user and can upload the files up to 250 GB in size.

It is well suited for environments that already are using the Office 365 suite of applications across the whole organization, as it integrates very well across those different appplications. It is less suited for organizations that are looking for a very low cost, or no cost, cloud storage solution, as this may not be for them. Since Office 365, and therefore OneDrive, is subscription based, there is an ongoing monthly or yearly cost of the software. Also, OneDrive would be less ideal in environments that are looking for a very simple to use storage solution, as opposed to having one with more features such as OneDrive.

For an organization who is trying to move away from heavy reliance on day-to-day data being housed on the server, this would be a perfect application.

If you are an organization who deals with more sensitive information i.e. HIPAA specific, it may not be the best application as there will be more monitoring of users, pw protection, etc.

We have the entire Microsoft suite of products, so OneDrive was included in our plan. It made sense to use it as our default cloud storage system. We use it across our organization and it is accessed by over 100 users from our company. OneDrive allows us to share files with all of them pretty well. If you are a smaller organization or don't use Microsoft products, there are better fits for a lesser cost.

OneDrive is well suited for any organization that has a large workforce that is spread across a large geographic area. Additionally, this tool is a tremendous tool for employees who travel for business regularly. For instance, OneDrive maintains files and saves them to the device automatically, so if an employee is on a plane or has limited internet access, files would still be accessible.

For storing accessing and organizing files or information, allowing access and sharing/collaborating with others on files. It lacks the ability to display certain documents such as .dwg files etc. It is a good app for being mobile and needing to upload or access stored files on the go. It’s great for documenting inspections and doing digital reports.

OneDrive used to be my go-to product for cloud storage. Seamless integration with Office 365 and 1TB with Office365 subscription, it was perfect. Then came "Files-on-Demand" which was a disaster. At first, simply very slow access waiting for the file to download, even if you had just created and saved the file 3 seconds before. Then came the file corruption where files suddenly became unreadable and could not be opened or recovered. I tried everything, including many hours researching on internet and with MS Tech support. I finally decided today to end the struggle, and go to an alternative product, IDrive. I now have a 1TB harddrive so I really just need my files backed up to the cloud for backup, security and maybe the occasional web access.

I strongly encourage others to use OneDrive internally for cloud storage. It reduces the need for expensive internal server management, and I trust Microsoft's abilities to manage and support a massive cloud infrastructure securely. OneDrive is current, easy to use, and can help drive employees off of other less secure or unapproved tools like Google Drive, DropBox, or Basecamp. As part of the O365 package, I know that improvements will always be made to the tool as time goes on. OneDrive does have public link capabilities, but my organization has not enabled this yet. This is something that would help us eliminate a few other tools as well.

OneDrive is well suited for quick storage and retrieval of important work documents. It allows users to share links to certain files which works well for collaboration. In terms of storage you can easily monitor how many GB you are using and even up storage in 1TB increments. OneDrive works so much like a file directory on a work PC so it is easy to learn and navigate around. It works well on both a PC and a Cell Phone.

I think OneDrive is very well suited for people who are looking for personal cloud storage. It is fast, easy to use, and you get a reasonable amount of space. OneDrive is also very well suited for corporations who are wanting to provide their employees with individual cloud storage. There are so many great features for both of those situations (quick syncing, version history, apps, etc.).

The only situation I don't think OneDrive is well suited for is if someone had both a personal and individual corporate account. The current limitations in Windows 10 don't allow you to see all your accounts at the same time. Once that gets resolved, I can't see any scenarios where OneDrive wouldn't be a great option.

Some scenarios OneDrive is well suited for are:
  1. Storing and sharing casual Word, Excel, PowerPoint documents
  2. Storing product demo videos and sharing them with colleagues for streaming
  3. Storing images for product branding and sharing them company-wide
  4. Storing recordings of conference calls and sharing them with colleagues
  5. Storing documents that are worked upon by many people at a time
I have not yet found scenarios where OneDrive may be less appropriate in a business setting.
