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.
