Managed Disk Storage
Azure Managed Disks are the new and recommended disk storage offerings for use with Azure Virtual Machines for persistent storage of data. You can use multiple Managed Disks with each virtual machine. Managed Disks offer two types of durable storage options: Premium and Standard Managed Disks.
If you are interested in pricing details for Unmanaged Disks, please see the Unmanaged Disks & Page blobs pricing page.
US government entities are eligible to purchase Azure Government services from a licensing solution provider with no upfront financial commitment or directly through a pay-as-you-go online subscription.
Important: The price in R$ is merely a reference; this is an international transaction and the final price is subject to exchange rates and the inclusion of IOF taxes and an eNF will not be issued.
Azure Germany is available to customers and partners doing business in the European Union (EU), European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and United Kingdom (UK), and provides data residency in Germany with additional levels of control and data protection. You can also sign up for a free Azure Germany trial.
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 GB. 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 TB 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.

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.

Locally Redundant Storage (LRS)
Makes multiple synchronous copies of your data within a single data centre.
For more details on redundancy options and how they can be used for high availability, please refer to the Azure Storage replication page. Please note that not all redundancy types are available for all storage types.
You will be charged the same rate for your provisioned disk, regardless of how much of the disk space is being used.
The charges will be pro-rated on an hourly basis using the monthly price.
