We need to migrate large amount of data to SharePoint Online. I need to understand whether there is any capacity limit for a single document library in SharePoint. 

 

I understand that a site collection has 25 TB of limit, and there is limit to the number of items in a list or library. However; I haven't found any article that mention any limit for a document library in terms of maximum cumulative size of data it can hold. 

 

Can a document library have TBs of data like upto 10 -15 TBs?

 

Any help here is highly appreciated. 

 

Thanks.

AFAIK, the answer is yes...think on OneDrive For Business that is fundamentally a SharePoint Document Library...you can have an unlimited space there, so your limits are in terms of the number of items in the library (30 M) and the total storage you can have in a single site (25 TB)
