Cloud storage provider Box announced on Thursday it is doubling its personal offering to include 10GB of free storage, as well as launching a new Starter plan designed for small businesses that offers 100GB for $5 per user.
The company says the new plans “make it easier for businesses of all sizes to move their content to the cloud”.
Currently, there are more than 20 million individuals and 180,000 businesses using Box to share and manage their content in the cloud.
Using a freemium cloud adoption model, Box first introduced its Personal plan in 2006, and since then the company’s sales have more than 150 percent in its most recent fiscal year, and is on pace to more than double sales again in the current year.
Box’s new plans offer a range of features and capabilities designed to meet the needs of any individual or organization.
The free Personal plan now offers 10GB of free storage– double what it offered in the past.
The Starter plan, which is designed for SMBs and small teams of up to 10 users, is priced at $5 per month. The service includes 100GB of pooled storage and a 2GB file size limit.
The Business plan is priced at $15 per user per month. The plan includes 1000GB of storage and a 5GB file size limit, as well as one premium enterprise application integration, basic admin console functions, and device pinning.
The Enterprise plan is priced at $35 per user per month. The plan includes unlimited storage and a 5GB file size limit, as well as unlimited external collaborators and enterprise application integrations, full group Active Directory support, access to the full Box admin console, security reporting and content management services, and the Box Content API (for 3 custom apps).
Finally, the Elite plan, whose price is available on request, includes the features of the Enterprise plan, as well as the highest level of Box support, a free test environment, and unlimited use of the Box Content API for custom internal apps.
“We’re focused on removing any and all barriers to cloud adoption,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “More than ever before, the economy today is driven by information and collaboration. Whether you’re a global corporation, a small business, or a freelancer, the key to competing is being able to securely share, manage and access your content anywhere, on any device. These new plans make the cloud more accessible than ever before.”
