Azure Storage Pricing

Reliable, economical cloud storage for both big and small data.

Azure has five types of storage – Blobs, Files, Disks, Tables and Queues. See how they work

Your total cost depends on how much you store, the volume and type of storage transactions and outbound data transfers, and which data redundancy option you choose. Here’s how they compare:

Locally Redundant Storage (LRS) Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS) Geographically Redundant Storage (GRS) Read-Access Geographically Redundant Storage (RA-GRS)
Makes multiple synchronous copies of your data within a single data centre Stores three copies of data across multiple data centres within or across regions. For Block Blobs only. Same as LRS, plus multiple asynchronous copies to a second data centre hundreds of miles away Same as GRS, plus read access to the secondary 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.

Disks Storage

Disks are used by Azure Virtual Machines for persistent storage of data. You can use multiple Disks with each Virtual Machine. Disk pricing also applies to Page Blobs in general-purpose storage accounts. For object storage, Block Blobs is recommended, while Page Blobs should be used only when random write operations are required.

Premium Disks

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

Standard Disks

In cases where consistent low latency and high throughput are not required, you may use Standard Disks as a more economical option. Standard disks support all the features as Premium Disks.
