Object Creation Limit Reached In Office 365 for Education

While busy with a large deployment of Office 365 for Education (150k users) at one of my clients I ran into this error after the initial 50000 users were created successfully:
You have reached the limit for the number of objects your company can create.
 This happend in both my testing and production domains.

I also experienced the following response from PowerShell:
Unable to add this user because the total number of allowed objects has already been reached

As per these are DS quota limits that are enforced on all Office 365 tenants. I had to create a service request for each tenant with Microsoft to get the limit increased. For more information on how to request the DS quota increase click to
