Your feedback was clear: “We need more online storage and it needs to be cheaper.”
So we adjusted the SharePoint Online service accordingly—both in per tenant storage quota limits and the cost of additional storage. Now, you can be less constrained as you plan your content management strategy and determine how and where you share files and manage projects.
Individual customers (tenants) can now consume up to 25TB of data and content, compared to the previous per tenant limit of 5TB. As a result, storage limits are no longer such a barrier. Go ahead and create new documents, share them, version them, move them from DRAFT to FINAL, review and approve them, populate lists, publish forms, generate new sites, upload marketing assets, create company-wide Document Centers, design your company intranet, and more.
Along with the recent price reductions across Office 365, the SharePoint Online additional storage add-on has decreased by 92 percent effective immediately. The reduction translates to a drop from U.S. $2.50 per GB/month, to $0.20 per GB/month. Yes, you read that right—20 cents each month. So if you need more storage than you originally received by default, go ahead. You won’t break the bank.
There is a simple equation to help determine how much SharePoint Online content and data storage space your company gets by default when you purchase of Office 365. Please note that “seats” refers to individual user licenses.
Note: Kiosk workers (K1 & K2) and external users do not contribute to the total available tenant storage quota.
In addition to overall combined company storage, every user that gets a My Site (E1-E4) will also get 500MB of personal storage. My Sites are a central location to store and manage documents, favorite links, and personal blog and wiki pages.
