Hi Cloud Sellers!

Great news!  It was just announced that SkyDrive Pro as part of Office 365 has increased the default space allocated for each user from 7GB to 25GB!  This is for both new customers as well as existing customers.  This is a very common ask and is a welcome addition to the Office 365 offering…

Additionally, you can also now ADD space to users’ SkyDrive Pro storage to even more than 25GB!  It can now be upped to 50GB or even 100GB (current high end limit.)

Another welcome update – there is a NEW view called “Shared with me” that will show all documents that your colleagues have shared with you.  Before this it was quite a challenge to find a document or folder that someone had shared with you and this simplifies this scenario!

But wait, there is even more!  The overall file upload limit is increasing in SharePoint Online to 2 GB/file and the default recycle bin retention to 90 days (up from 30 days). And we're enabling versioning by default on newly provisioned SkyDrive Pro libraries, which saves the last ten versions, so you never lose an important document. These service improvements apply to SkyDrive Pro and to team site documents and data.

There are many more details on these improvements on the Office 365 technology blog post by Mark Kashman & Tejas Mehta here:

Thanks!  And good selling!
