SkyDrive Pro online storage gets better

Microsoft has just announce 3 improvements to SkyDrive Pro Online:

1. SkyDrive Storage for all users will be increased from the current 7GB standard to 25GB.

2. You can purchase additional storage for SkyDrive Pro beyond the new 25GB limit up to 100GB.

3. New Shared with Me view to located documents shared with you.

This is great news and another indication of how cheap online storage has become. I would expect to see this limit continue to increase over time.

The ability to add more storage to SkyDrive Pro was a limit for some users but now no more. 100GB of personal space is a HUGE amount of data for one person!

As I have mentioned many time here in this blog, the future of collaboration is all about sharing and anything that makes that easier is good.
