Provision site collection in SharePoint Online (O365) via remote PowerShell

In SharePoint Online (O365), you can use remote PowerShell to create site collections when you have tenant-admin permissions.

First you need to download and install the SharePoint Online Management Shell.

Run the Management Shell and connect to your tenant-admin url:

Connect-SPOService -Url -credential

The Management Shell will now ask for your password. After that you can create a site collection using the below command:

New-SPOSite -Url “” -Owner “” -StorageQuota “500” -Title “My Site created via Remote PowerShell”

Full details of the available parameters can be found on MSDN.
