Microsoft has enhanced the default storage limit to 10GB across all instances within a tenant.

Furthermore, the organizations can purchase additional storage from the Office 365 portal at an additional cost per month.

Microsoft, further, offers additional storage capacity at no charge if an organization increases the number of full users and is accrued at the rate of 5GB for every 20 full users.
