Hi,

 

Few of our O365 subscriptions included with SharePoint Online plan 2. I found this post https://technet.microsoft.com/en-in/library/onedrive-for-business-service-description.aspx has mentioned

 

The following qualifying plans provide unlimited OneDrive storage per user for subscriptions with at least five users. Microsoft will provide an initial 5 TB of storage space per user. Customers who want additional OneDrive storage can request it as needed by contacting Microsoft Support.

 

So, I wanted to be crystal clear on this statement, each of my SharePoint online plan 2 subscription users will get FREE 5TB of OneDrive storage by default and if i need unlimted FREE storage i can get it by contacting MS support with no extra cost?

 

Thanks

If you have 5 or more users, yes that is what they are saying.

Only some plans, as detailed in the article. Read, commercial E3/E5 SKUs and the standalone ODFB plan 2, which is like $10 per month. I would hardly call it free.

As you mentioned your O365 subscriptions include SharePoint Online plan 2, you are eligible for the 5TB + free when requested. Seems pretty clear to me here:

The following qualifying plans provide unlimited OneDrive storage per user for subscriptions with at least five users. Microsoft will provide an initial 5 TB of storage space per user. Customers who want additional OneDrive storage can request it as needed by contacting Microsoft Support. Subscriptions with less than five users receive 1 TB of storage per user.
OneDrive for Business Plan 2
SharePoint Online Plan 2

Office 365 Enterprise E5

"Subscriptions with less than five users receive 1 TB of storage per user."
