Archive your content in place
in SharePoint

When content exceeds your SharePoint Online tenant’s limit, the typical solution is to purchase additional storage regardless of how actively that content is being used. But with Microsoft 365 Archive, you can store your expanding SharePoint content at a lower cost and easily reactivate it with a few clicks.

The best part? You only pay for Microsoft 365 Archive when your total storage surpasses the tenant’s quota. So, if you choose to archive some existing SharePoint data and remain within the quota, there’s no extra charge. Experience cost-effective, efficient storage with Microsoft 365 Archive.
