Former SkyDrive users can get access with the same user credentials

Microsoft was forced to find a new name for its SkyDrive cloud storage service after it lost a court fight against Sky Broadcasting over the name. Microsoft settled on OneDrive as the new name for the service and has now announced that it is available for users to check out.
Those who were users of SkyDrive don’t need to do anything to take advantage of OneDrive. The files they had stored with SkyDrive are already available in OneDrive when users login with their existing credentials.
Microsoft is offering new OneDrive users 7GB of free storage. If that isn't enough storage, users can buy more with 50GB, 100GB, and 200GB increments available. Customers using the free storage option can increase their allotment if they refer friends (up to an additional 5GB in 500MB increments).

OneDrive also has a camera backup feature that automatically archives images taken with compatible smartphones. Anyone who enables that auto backup feature will get another 3GB of free storage space.
And if that isn’t enough, Microsoft is also offering a special promotion to net you even more storage space:
To celebrate the official launch of OneDrive, today we will also give 100,000 people 100 GB of free storage for 1 year. That’s 10 PB of free storage—enough storage space for a photo of everyone on the planet. If you want to be one of those 100,000, keep an eye on @OneDrive for clues.
SkyDrive Pro is now known as OneDrive for Business. Specs and pricing details for the new business offering will be announced next month at the 2014 SharePoint Conference.
