Comparing OneDrive, MS Teams, and Box


LSU ITS now offers OneDrive, MS Teams, and Box to the LSU community. This article aims to assist in comparing the features of all three services for those who are trying to decide which service may best suit you and your team's needs.

While OneDrive and Box are primarily file storage services, MS Teams is a group communication software with functionality similar to Slack and GroupMe.
