Managing SharePoint Online Storage 

Given SharePoint Online storage is limited, managing the growing usage of applications that consume SharePoint storage, such as Microsoft Teams, is a concern for many SharePoint Online admins: 

How much storage space do I have? 

SharePoint Online’s storage per organization is 1TB, plus 10GB per licensed user. So, if you have 1000 licensed users, you receive 11TB of storage free with your plan. To view your organization’s total and available storage, refer to Microsoft’s step-by-step instructions 

What happens if I run out of storage space? 

You’ll have to pay for storage greater than the amount allotted to your number of licensed users. 

Data Cloud - pulse survey

How much does it cost? Are there other options? 

While you can pay for the additional storage, SharePoint’s storage fee is approximately $0.20 per GB per month. To see your actual cost follow these instructions. Azure, on the other hand, offers a much lower rate – approximately $0.058 per GB per month depending on your storage requirements.
