I would be working out of multiple locations going forward. Was looking to move to cloud. You think Office 365 is a good alternative? I was looking for some of the plans that they have at Any suggestions are welcome.

If you want to go cloud, I'd look at Google solutions first. They have a better history of multiplatform support, better support for the ODF format set, lower entry price, and working sync solutions. (I work in a school using O365, and as of this writing, MS has not delivered a working OneDrive desktop-sync solution for enterprises. Sync for personal accounts does work, though.) Their licensing is also more transparent.

If you rely on integrations with other Microsoft solutions (incl. collaboration locked to OOXML format usage), have a large number of employees or require lots of space for file storage (>100GB per user), O365 may be functionally better, cheaper, or have better support.

Of course, the seamless integration between cloud and desktop applications (without needing to worry about sync at all) is a strong selling point for MS, when it works...
