    Increase in SharePoint Online storage allocation


    Global digital transformation is driving growth across Microsoft 365 and SharePoint as organizations invest in technology to empower employees to do their best work. More than 350,000 organizations now have SharePoint and the data they are storing over doubled last year alone.

    We’re hearing customers want to put even more content into SharePoint to take advantage of new team collaboration and enterprise content management experiences, while moving off on-premise servers, file shares, and 3rd party cloud offerings.

    Today we are announcing a 20x increase in the SharePoint Online per user license storage allocation. This will increase to 1 TB plus 10 GB per user license purchased, up from 1 TB plus .5 GB per user license purchased. Note this does not include SharePoint Online kiosk plans including Office 365 F1 and Microsoft 365 F1.

    All Office 365 services that use SharePoint for content services, including Microsoft Teams and Office 365 Groups, will benefit from this substantial storage increase.

    Example scenarios of increased storage allocation

    100 user licenses 5000 user licenses 100,000 user licenses
    Base tenant allocation 1 TB 1 TB 1 TB
    Per user license allocation 1 TB (100 * 10 GB) 50 TB (5000 * 10 GB) 1000 TB (100,000 * 10 GB)
    Total tenant allocation 2TB 51 TB 1001 TB

    This change will start rolling out on July 1, 2018 and will be completed by the end of August 2018. Once complete, you’ll see this increased storage in your SharePoint Online admin center. If you are currently paying for additional storage you can decrease this as needed after this change is reflected in your tenant.

    As always, you can purchase additional storage if needed from within the SharePoint Online admin center on a per-gigabyte (GB), per-month basis.


    We are humbled by SharePoint Online’s customer momentum and look forward to helping you achieve more with this additional content storage for your teams and organization.

    WOW! MS is taking this cloud business seriously. That drastic increase should keep subscribers happy for a while. :)

    Maybe - but Sharepoint itself is a bit of a cranky product.
    For instance it still has some features which only work with Internet Explorer - none of your new-fangled 'Edge' browsing!

    Yeah I know! Sometimes very frustrating, and some stuff didn't work properly anywhere without a few hacks. Early MS products were heavily married with each other. Once all that gets modernized, I think it will beconme a great product.
