Office 365

What Is Office 365

Office 365 combines the familiar Microsoft Office desktop suite with cloud-based versions of Microsoft's communications and collaboration services—including Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Office Web Apps—to help users be productive from virtually anywhere through the Internet.  Office 365 offers each user a default Exchange mailbox size of 50 GB.

Each user will also have 25 GB of storage for their use through the SkyDrive Pro function provided by Office 365.  SkyDrive Pro has many functions in addition to safe, encrypted storage in the cloud. Document sharing through permission grants is also a function of SkyDrive Pro.

Under the contract USF IT established with Microsoft for Office 365, no data would be housed outside of the continental United States.  All of the information is part of a USF area for which no other organization has access.
