It's a combination of a mailbox, distribution group, SharePoint library to store documents in, and more. It's a new type of object that exists only in O365, you can read more about it in the official documentation here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/learn-about-office-365-groups-b565caa1-5c40-40ef-9915-60fdb2d97fa2

You can create such Office 365 Groups from various places, but it depends on how the administrator has configured the corresponding setting. The documentation above also covers managing group creation.
