There is much more than Unlimited storage in G Suite Business.
Most people differentiate G Suite business by only one feature that is unlimited storage space. However, it's under the hood, or in the G Suite admin console, where the real value of G Suite Business begins to appear.
Two key differentiators for technology experts include Google Vault (retention and ediscovery) as well as advanced reporting, sharing, app maker, cloud search, team drive and drive audit reporting features.
G Suite Business reduces IT risk, simplifies auditing and saves time. And now you can:
Unlimited cloud storage (or 1TB per user if fewer than 5 users)
Simplify legal compliance and prevent data loss: Email retention, archive, and export
Use Vault to track user activity. Robust audit trails let you see searches, message views, exports, and more.

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device.
Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
Files are owned at domain level vs user level so files don’t get lost if users leave.Everyone sees the same files can edit at the same time.New members of a group see all shared files, making onboarding of new team members easy.
Any files you put in Team Drives are automatically shared with members of the Team Drive. However, you can also share Team Drive files with people in your organization who aren’t members of the Team Drive.
