Azure Container Registry Pricing

Manage a Private Docker Registry as a first-class Azure resource

Azure Container Registry is a service to manage private Docker registries for common storage across all of your Azure container deployments including Azure Container Service, Service Fabric, Azure App Service and Azure Batch.

Azure Container Registry preview itself is a free service. You are only charged for underlying infrastructure resources such as storage used to store your images and data transfer. Your images will be stored in Locally Redundant (LRS) Blob storage and Bandwidth rates will apply for data transfers to other Azure regions. Azure Container Registry preview is currently available in US East, US West and Southcentral US regions.

Blob Storage Accounts

Block Blob storage is used for streaming and storing documents, videos, pictures, backups and other unstructured text or binary data. Below is the pricing for dedicated Blob Storage Accounts with Hot and Cool access tiers. Append Blobs are also metered as Block Blobs.
