SharePoint Online provides the ability to create Intranet sites and Team Sites for groups to collaborate and manage their documents. A SharePoint site enables members of a team or from other teams to contribute content on a single platform. The information is limited to the members of the team or project.

The creation and storage sizing of SharePoint Online sites can be controlled. Out of the box, users can create SharePoint sites and these sites have no storage limits applied. Without restriction there is potentially a large management overhead so it is suggested to set the limit default to 200GB.

Administrators can put controls in place which restricts who can create a SharePoint site and set the size requirements.
