Getting around file size limitations for Canvas and Storyline

Hi all - I'm a new Instructional Designer working in a university setting with Canvas as our LMS. I'm noting that our subscription to Canvas has a very limited file storage size. This would eliminate the potential for using Storyline really. I'm wondering if others have found a workaround to this (e.g., is it possible to store the files elsewhere and link to them from the LMS?).
