Pricing details

Premium Managed Disks

Premium Managed Disks are high-performance Solid-state Drive (SSD) based Storage designed to support I/O intensive workloads with significantly high throughput and low latency. With Premium Managed Disks, you can provision a persistent disk and configure its size and performance characteristics.

The total cost of Premium Managed Disks depends on the size and number of the disks, and will be affected by the number of outbound data transfers. These disk sizes provide different input/output operations per sec (IOPs), throughput caps and monthly price per GiB. You choose the option that best meets your required storage size, IOPs and throughput. Attach several persistent disks to a VM and you can configure up to 64 TiB of storage per VM, and achieve 80,000 input/output operations per second, and 1,600 MB per second disk throughput per VM at less than one millisecond latency for read operations. Premium Managed Disks are supported by DS-series, DSv2-series, FS-series and GS-series VM sizes which are specifically targeted for Premium Disks.

You can store Managed Disk snapshots and images for Premium Managed Disks on Standard Disk storage. These snapshots and images are charged at $0.05/GB per month. If you choose to store them on Premium Disk storage, you’ll be charged at $-/GB per month.

There are no transaction costs for Premium Disks.
Prices above also apply to Premium Unmanaged Disks.

Standard Managed Disks

Standard Managed Disks use Hard Disk Drive (HDD) based Storage media. They are best suited for dev/test and other infrequent access workloads that are less sensitive to performance variability.

The total cost of Standard Managed Disk storage depends on the size and number of disks, the number of transactions, and the number of outbound data transfers. There is no difference between standard disk sizes in terms of IOPS and throughput.

Managed snapshots and images are charged at $-/GB per month.

We charge $- per 10,000 transactions for Standard Managed Disks. Any type of operation against the storage is counted as a transaction, including reads, writes and deletes.

Managed disks are only available for Locally Redundant Storage (LRS). Please refer to the Azure Storage replication page for more details on redundancy options.
