SharePoint Online now allows up to 1TB of storage for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint site collections in Office 365. An administrator can specify which specific users they want to assign new upper quotas of 50GB, 100GB, 250GB, 500GB or 1TB quota.

Particularly revealing, the document states that Microsoft “believes a holding company model consolidating most of its ...
