Import/Export Pricing

Azure Import/Export service enables you to transfer large amounts of data to and from Azure using hard disk drives, so it’s faster and more cost-effective for moving big data sets than transferring the data over the Internet. It enables you to transfer data to Azure by the secure transport of hard disk drives to our data centres, and by using our high-speed, secure internal network.

Pricing details
