(The Hosting News) – Following a court ruling last July, Microsoft has announced that its cloud storage service has changed from SkyDrive to OneDrive.
UK broadcaster, BSkyB, took the tech giant to court claiming that the company was infringing on its copyrights, in which the UK court took to favor of BSkyB.
“Why OneDrive? We know that increasingly you will have many devices in your life, but you really want only one place for your most important stuff,” wrote Senior Director of Internet Explorer, Ryan Gavin, via OneDrive blog. “One place for all of your photos and videos. One place for all of your documents. One place that is seamlessly connected across all the devices you use. You want OneDrive for everything in your life.”
“Changing the name of a product as loved as SkyDrive wasn’t easy. We believe the new OneDrive name conveys the value we can deliver for you and best represents our vision for the future.”
Microsoft has not released an official date of the SkyDrive transfer other than to be expecting the service “soon.”
