Thankfully, there are now multiple services available to help you achieve peace of mind, security and compliance. Within Office 365 alone and at a personal / private level there is OneDrive, which is included with most Office 365 licenses. For active, shareable, business information with the addition of metadata attached there is SharePoint. On top of these storage solutions that are built into Office 365, there are also multiple Azure Storage solutions, that can be scaled to any size and requirement you need.
