Our company is using the Office 365 suite, and we are considering to move our data from our old file servers to Sharepoint/Onedrive. Since we have a lot of data (15TB+), it's important for me that I get a clear picture of what the storage limits are for a Sharepoint site.
I keep reading that for Sharepoint the limit is 25TB, and I can verify that as well when looking at one of the test sites I've created.
But then when I check my Sharepoint admin, I see a different limit of 1.63TB
I've also looked at the limits that Microsoft describes in the Sharepoint documentation. They talk about "Storage: 1 TB per organization plus 10 GB per license purchased", but then there is also "Up to 25 TB per site collection or group".
My question is: what is the difference between "Storage" and "Storage for site collections", and which limit would my users run into when uploading documents to a Sharepoint site? Can I actually use this 25TB limit or is it just 1.63TB?
