As you implement cloud services for your business’s IT network, you need to choose the best office suite for your network infrastructure. You’ll most likely have to choose between G Suite and Office 365. But which one is the right fit for your network and your business operations? Let’s look at the features of both office suites so you understand how each one works. Then you can determine which one fits your business needs.
When you select an office suite, you probably want the one that has the best email hosting for your small business’s network. But is G Suite the better fit for your business, or is it Office 365? Let’s look at what types of email hosting features each suite offers:
Both G Suite and Office 365 allow you to register business email addresses with your website domain. However, G Suite allows you to register up to 30 aliases for each user, while Office 365 allows you to register up to 400 aliases per user. Also, when you use G Suite for email hosting, its features vary widely depending on which G Suite plan you sign up for. For example, G Suite’s Basic plan just offers the ability to create email addresses with your domain name. Its Business Plan, however, includes that plus email archiving and message retention policies to help you keep track of your business communications. Office 365 offers a 50GB inbox with its most basic plan while G Suite makes no such storage offer with its Basic plan. So if you need a basic plan that offers a lot of inbox storage, Office 365 is the stronger option.
As with email hosting and storage, Office 365 provides more storage with their most basic plans, beginning with 1TB of storage, than G Suite does. G Suite only offers 30GB with their Basic plan, and that includes both files and email storage. However, G Suite does store everything in Google Drive, giving you a central storage location and an easy way to share files with employees and colleagues. When it comes to G Suite vs. Office 365 for small business cloud storage, Office 365 offers more storage upfront. But G Suite gives you easy, centralized access to your cloud storage. Both options have their pros and cons where cloud storage is concerned, and Reverus can help you determine which one best fulfills your business needs.
Since Office 365 and G Suite both have their pros and cons, can you implement both in your IT network? Yes, you can. Reverus’s team of IT experts can help you implement and configure both office suites so you can have the best of both worlds. Both office suites provide online and offline apps, but Office 365’s apps are installed as desktops apps on your computer. G Suite provides online apps that can be downloaded and used offline when necessary. If you implement both suites in your network, you can customize all their features to meet your needs and adapt to your business operations.
