When web hosting companies promise features such as unlimited storage it is not to be taken literally. It is more like a marketing tactic. Even some of the world’s most known hosting companies, like Godaddy, Hostgator and Domain.com, advertise plans that come with unlimited space, unlimited email accounts, unlimited bandwidth. Technically this is not possible. Your website’s files will be stored in a big computer, called “the server”. That will be located together with many other servers in a server room, usually known as a data centre.
Servers have a finite amount of space, measured in GB or TB. A server’s space can be several TB big. However, in a shared hosting environment, that space will be split among many users (websites). If your site’s allocated space is between 10GB and 100 GB that is pretty good. Web hosting companies have seen that 99.9% of the average WordPress websites, used either for business purposes or for private blogs, do not need more than 100GB. In fact, the vast majority of websites have files that do not exceed 1GB of storage. Therefore, web hosting firms think that it is safe enough to promise unlimited web hosting space, in the hope that you will never need it.

If your company need to store over 10GB of files, I recommend you get cloud storage services, such as https://cloud.google.com/storage/
If you need to host your data in your very own server, where you host your site, then you will need a VPS server or a Dedicated server. Most dedicated hosting services offer 300GB of storage or more. However, you will be paying a lot more than your current shared hosting plan. The prices offered by your current host for VPS and Dedicated Hosting seem reasonable.
