The University now recommends Office 365 over Strathcloud. If you are a Strathcloud user, you should begin to transition to Office 365. Office 365 includes OneDrive for Business, Teams and Sharepoint. OneDrive for Business should be used for individual data and short-term sharing : Teams and Sharepoint should be used for important or long-term shared data.
