Things are getting cloudier at Microsoft. Office 365 or OneDrive users are about to see their cloud storage lockers get bigger.

Microsoft says it will now give OneDrive users 15GB of free cloud storage, up from the previous 7GB allotment.

This bring’s Microsoft’s OneDrive offering into parity with that of its biggest rival, Google Drive, which also offers 15GB free storage.

Both the OneDrive and the Google Drive offerings are the largest available, beating out free storage given away by players like Apple’s iCloud and Dropbox.

Microsoft says that within the next month, Office 365 users will get 1TB of free space, up from 20GB.

This will give Office 365 consumer users every bit as much space as Office 365 business users.

Also, Microsoft lowered the price of its monthly storage plans to $1.99 per 100GB from $7.49 (also matching Google Drive), and to $3.99 for 200GB from $11.49. It has eliminated the 50GB plan altogether.
