Windows SharePoint Services supports the use of some, but not all, quota templates in a hosted solution. Quota templates are predefined sets of quotas to apply to a site or to all sites on a virtual server. The following quota templates are supported:

  • Storage-based quotas
  • Site-based quotas (except in shared deployments)

The following quota templates are not supported:

  • User-based quotas
  • Site-based quotas (in shared deployments)

This solution uses service plans and the Microsoft Provisioning System (MPS) to provision SharePoint sites. Each service plan has a quota template associated with it, thus each new SharePoint site automatically has a quota applied at the time of provisioning. To change the quota for a given SharePoint site, modify the service plan associated with it.
