Blobs, Tables, Queues, and Files
Azure Storage provides the flexibility to store and retrieve large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents and media files with Azure Blobs; structured nosql based data with Azure Tables; reliable messages with Azure Queues, and use SMB based Azure Files for migrating on-premises applications to the cloud.
Azure Storage keeps up with your growing data needs, with up to 500 TB of total storage per account. A single subscription supports up to 50 storage accounts, delivering petabytes of storage for the largest scenarios. Whether you're building a consumer site or a terabyte-scale big data application, Azure is designed to handle it.
Durable & highly available
Azure storage automatically replicates your data to help guard against unexpected hardware failures and make sure it's available when you need it. We keep 3 copies within a single region. A geo-redundancy option creates 3 additional copies hundreds of miles away for higher availability and disaster recovery.
Azure Premium Storage is a new SSD based storage offering designed to support I/O intensive workloads; provisioned as a persistent disk and configured to meet your performance requirements. You can attach multiple persistent disks, which delivers up to 32 TB of storage and more than 50,000 IOPS with less than one millisecond latency for read operations.
Designed for developers
Build apps with first class client library support for .NET, Java, Android, C++, and Node.js. Data in Azure Storage is also accessible via REST API, which can be called by any language that makes HTTP/HTTPS requests. Azure Storage includes strong consistency guarantees, simplifying cloud application development and enabling predictable experiences for applications built on Azure.
Azure Storage is available in 19 regions across 4 continents. Put your files where it makes the most business sense. Scale up or across data centers as needed and keep data geographically closer to your customers for faster access and better performance.
Pay only for what you use, at a cost lower than on-premises storage options. Our competitive price matching policy also means you're always getting a great deal on cloud storage.
