5 reasons why using Cloud Drive Mapper with OneDrive for Business & SharePoint is a no-brainer

As the name suggests, Cloud Drive Mapper maps drives to cloud storage. Specifically, as of right now, it maps drives to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online. It allows organisations to replace their network file storage with the cloud storage provided with Office 365. Why is this such a good idea? 


Each user gets a whole 1 terabyte of cloud storage. For 50,000 users that’s 50,000 terabytes! Think of managing all that in hardware terms; think of paying for it! And there is no upper limit to the number of users – ever. You simply pay for the service per user per month, on demand like your electricity.

You want to allow your users to access their OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online files on other workstations or at home? No problem; cloud storage has no physical restrictions. You can even move users to another office, another building or even another city without ever needing to consider hardware storage solutions.

Synchronising your important, valuable and sensitive data on to local hard drives is not necessarily a great idea. It’s more susceptible to hacks, malware and general carelessness on a local machine, than behind the walls of sophisticated security and monitoring of the cloud.

There is no capital expenditure at all; no financing, insurance, servicing, maintenance or repair costs. No energy costs and no carbon footprint.  You can even free up building space for more productive use. As we said you just pay as you go and you’ll find you’re paying as little as 10% of the annual costs associated with conventional hardware storage with the benefits of total flexibility as well.

The greatest hidden benefit of Cloud Drive Mapper is its simplicity; it’s just like any other drive on your desktop. So no training is needed; which is important when you have thousands of users. And it also works on cheaper devices with small hard-drives, which is great for schools with small budgets, or users like students who have to buy their own PCs. 

Mapping drives to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online is the perfect low cost storage and collaboration solution, with unlimited flexibility. Click the link below to get your free trial of Cloud Drive Mapper today!
