How the storage licencing quota works for a particular tenant and is their a certain threshold where it just stops increasing and it will affect customer SharePoint Online

@Preeti Patki 

 

For SharePoint you get 1TB per tenant and 10GB per license purchased. This would be a hard limit if you hit it and you can see this at the top of the SharePoint Admin centre. 

 

For SharePoint site collections there are 2 settings, 1 which allows quotas per site collection and the other which is auto expand to a maximum of 25TB per site collection, assuming you have that amount of storage.

@Preeti Patki In the SharePoint Admin Portal on the Active Sites page you'll see you available storage at the top right of the screen. That will give you an idea of how much space you are using and have allocated. You can purchase additional storage if required. 

 

Note that SharePoint storage is separate to OneDrive for Business storage allocation but is the same storage pool shared with Microsoft Teams (Files are stored in SharePoint).
