Blob storage max storage capacity VS ingress limit 

Referring to information posted here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/scalability-targets-standard-account.

For a blob storage account, I'm not clear on what an ingress limit is.  It states that "the ingress limit refers to all data from requests that are sent to a storage account", but wouldn't that essentially be data you're sending in for storage?  If that were the case, the ingress limit shouldn't be lower than the maximum storage capacity.

Someone help clear this up for me?

The ingress limit is a rate – it's expressed as gigabits per second. So it's the amount of data that you can send at one time, not the amount of data that they can send total.
If they were to send more than 25 Gbps, then their account might be throttled.
