It's not often a Microsoft product flies under the radar, but SkyDrive tends not to enjoy the same brand recognition as the Dropboxes and iClouds of the world--at least not yet. That could change with the full release of Windows 8, which promises tighter SkyDrive integration with Metro apps and on the traditional desktop via Internet Explorer. Check out Microsoft's comparison chart and it's clear who the company is going for: the personal cloud market, which poses some significant considerations for businesses. Exhibit A: SkyDrive offers 7 GB free, which bests each of its major competitors by at least 2 GB.

Google in the Enterprise Survey
There's no doubt Google has made headway into businesses: Just 28 percent discourage or ban use of its productivity ­products, and 69 percent cite Google Apps' good or excellent ­mobility. But progress could still stall: 59 percent of nonusers ­distrust the security of Google's cloud. Its data privacy is an open question, and 37 percent worry about integration.
