OneDrive Plans...

Does anyone else find the OneDrive pricing a little... odd?

Just in case that table isn't obvious:

  • OneDrive for Business is $30\year and includes 1000 GB of storage. Additional storage can be purchased for $0.20 per GB.
  • OneDrive (consumer) is free with 7 GB. Additional storage can be purchased for $0.50 per GB.

In other words, if you could purchase the equivalent $30, 1000 GB OneDrive for Business plan in OneDrive (consumer) it would cost you $500.

Obviously these two products are aimed at different markets and OneDrive for Business has a number of limitations, so I don't expect price parity. However I think the least Microsoft should be looking at doing is matching Google's (entirely reasonable) $120\year 1000 GB Google Drive offer.
