With Microsoft 365, it is business standard to use a precise vocabulary in the positioning of cloud storage tools: a nominative and individual space for Microsoft OneDrive, a collaborative and work space for SharePoint.
Microsoft OneDrive is often referred as the personal storage space; Yet this business tool has not been designed to store your personal holiday photos, it can do much more!
Beyond the joke, a parallel can be made with the Windows folder which is called "My documents", often assimilated to its "Personnel" folder. Hence the possible confusion.
As for the focus on Microsoft SharePoint, it is centered on document libraries, even if the tool has much wider collaborative possibilities!
The straight forward answer is no; these products are not the same. OneDrive is a vanilla online folder system used for storing files. SharePoint also has this function, but this platform has many other features. SharePoint comes with collaboration features, a customer management system, and various dashboards.
OneDrive provides a consistent, intuitive files experience across all your devices, including web, mobile, and the desktop of your Windows PC or Mac. Behind the scenes, SharePoint in Microsoft 365 provides the content services for all files in Microsoft 365, including files you work with in Teams, Yammer, and Outlook.
