Consumer Office 365 tops a half-billion dollars in annual revenue run-rate

Microsoft's Office 365 "rent-not-buy" subscription service is at an annual revenue run-rate of more than half a billion dollars.

When a Wall Street analyst asked Hood about the source of a large gain in cloud revenue — which includes Office 365 for businesses — and if Office for iPad played a part, the CFO declined to name any one factor. "I wouldn't point to one product area," Hood answered.

Microsoft has added an average of more than 1 million subscribers to the consumer-grade Office 365 plans each quarter since it rolled out the 'rent-not-buy' concept in early 2013. (Data: Microsoft.)
