I'm new to this so apologies if this is a question that doesn't belong here. I'm setting up a little construction company soon, and I want a cloud based server. The company I work for now works with a physical (I think that's the correct name?) server, so when you work from home you need a VPN, it's slow, sometimes buggy,... I don't like it.
I have office 365 so I would like to work with either Onedrive, Sharepoint, or Microsoft Teams. I just need a place where I can store all my files and syncs automatically, easily find them on my computer, smartphone,... for both me and my associate(s) as well. I've read that Onedrive is for personal use but you can also share documents, with Sharepoint it's always shared with colleagues, and Teams is something else but there I can also see the documents from my Onedrive,... Each option has its own advantages I guess but I'm confused. I just need the best cloud server, so I don't have to use the File Explorer anymore to save the company's files.
What is the best solution please?

Good evening @Abhishek_kum1 ,
Thank you so much for the explanation, this helped me a lot!
In the beginning it will be just my colleague and myself, so I don't need a complex server system with different teams. I made a test in Microsoft Teams where I made one Team, and in the "Files" section I would place all the documents, sorted for each project (see example attached). Like you said Onedrive I will keep using but only for my personal files.
I managed to place the Microsoft Teams folder also in my Windows File Explorer to have that "classic" feel, and with the Microsoft Teams app I also see everyting on my smartphone. Everything also synchronizes fast without problems. I think I'll give it a try like this, what do you think? And is it more recommended to work in Microsoft Teams or in SharePoint? Since the Team in Microsoft Teams also has a Sharepoint Site, I guess you can work in both?
