Azure File 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. See how they compare in the “Data Redundancy Options” section.

File Storage

File Storage is now generally available. It uses the industry-standard SMB 3.0 protocol. Share files between applications running on your virtual machines using familiar Windows APIs or File REST API.
