Azure Data Lake Storage pricing

Massively scalable, secure data lake functionality built on Azure Blob Storage

Azure Data Lake Storage is the world’s most productive Data Lake. It combines the power of a Hadoop compatible file system with integrated hierarchical namespace with the massive scale and economy of Azure Blob Storage to help speed your transition from proof of concept to production.

  1. Is fully integrated with the Azure Blob Storage platform; Every Blob Storage capability (Azure Active Directory Integration, At Rest Encryption, High-availability and disaster recovery, Automated Lifecycle Policy Management, Storage Account Firewalls, etc.) can be used by Azure Data Lake Storage
  2. Is optimized for leading cloud analytic engines
  3. Is tightly integrated with all elements of the Azure Big Data Analytics stack to deliver fast insights
  4. Allows analytics data to coexist with object data in the same store with no programming changes or data copying
  5. Performs faster than other data stores thus making your analytics workloads run faster and lowering your TCO

General Purpose v2 provides access to the latest Azure storage features, including Cool and Archive storage, with pricing optimised for the lowest GB storage prices. These accounts provide access to Data Lake Storage, Block Blobs, Page Blobs, Files and Queues.

Azure Data Lake Storage provides the choice of organizing data in two different ways. With hierarchical namespaces option, customers can organize their Data Lake into structured directories, folders and files. With flat namespaces, customers can operate their Data Lake as an unstructured blob store. Regardless of the two options, customers will pay for the same storage price as per the table below. However, with the hierarchical namespace option, customers will be charged for additional meta-data associated with the folder and directory structure as part of the bill.

Cool and Archive early deletion

In addition to the per-GB, per-month charge, any blob that is moved to the Archive tier is subject to an Archive early deletion period of 180 days. Additionally, for General-purpose v2 storage accounts, any blob that is moved to the Cool tier is subject to a Cool tier early deletion period of 30 days. This charge is prorated. For example, if a blob is moved to the Archive tier and then deleted or moved to the Hot tier after 45 days, the customer is charged an early deletion fee for 135 (180 minus 45) days of storage in the Archive tier.
