Google Workspace Storage Limits

Storage limits history

In February of 2021, Google announced significant changes coming to unlimited cloud storage for Google Workspace. The unlimited cloud storage for education organizations is being phased out. Starting in July 2022, schools will be given 100TB of combined Drive, Gmail, and Photos storage for free. After you’ve reached the max storage allocation per domain (100TB), you will need to curb your cloud storage usage or procure a paid Google Workspace edition.

This article contains resources to help you navigate the changes to storage. As we learn and develop best practices, this page will be updated. Consider bookmarking this article as it is the best way you can stay in step with new developments.
