Microsoft Offers Up to 1TB Site Collections and Unlimited Tenant Storage in Office 365

In case you missed The SharePoint Conference 2014 in Vegas this month, or you live under a rock… in which case you may have missed the conference, because, you are living under a rock, Jeff Teper during his keynote announced that for Office 365 (Enterprise and Academic subscription plans only), can now support up to 1TB site collections, and, also have unlimited storage per tenant.

There was previously a limit on the storage space at 25 TB per tenant. This is no longer an issue if you are in one of the above plans. Per user, you receive the following for your tenant:

“Users get a default 25GB of OneDrive for Business storage, + 50GB of  email storage, + 5GB for each site mailbox you create, + your total available tenant storage, which for every Office 365 business customer starts at 10GB + 500MB  times the number of users”

You also now have the ability to purchase additional storage right through the UI as well from the SharePoint administration console:

Pretty cool Microsoft… I have had a few clients worry about “hitting the wall” of 25TB, this is now no longer a concern.

The quote above was taken from the original article, which can be found here, along with more information on the offering:
