For people starting out with SuiteFiles and migrating their file systems into Office 365, how much is the storage cap for Office 365 is one of the most common questions we get. Until last week the answer wasn’t a flash one. Microsoft used to give you 10GB plus another 0.5GB per licensed user. So, for a 20 person business that equates to 15GB of file storage capacity. Nowhere near enough for 95% of our customers. You could purchase extra capacity if required and just about everyone needed to do that.
What's the difference between Office Web Apps and the desktop version of Office?
Not a whole lot. Office Web Apps is a slightly more light-weight version of the desktop software, but it still does all of the core jobs you require. In fact this flexibility around where you work - online or on your desktop - is one of the absolute gems of Office 365. It provides each user with choice. If you're on a computer without desktop Office but you have Office 365, you can use the web apps. If you want the fully featured version of Word or Excel, then desktop Office is for you. Think big spread sheets crunching big numbers, or highly customised Word documents.
