Azure Page Blobs pricing

Page Blobs

Page Blobs are optimised for random read and write options. Page Blobs are ideal for scenarios that require the ability to overwrite a random small segment at a known address, such as storing index-based and sparse data structures. Page blobs can be accessed through REST protocol or attached to a VM to support disk traffic as Unmanaged Disks.

For page blobs, you will be billed on an hourly basis.

Premium Page Blobs prices

Premium Page Blobs are high-performance solid-state drive (SSD)-based storage, designed to support I/O-intensive workloads with significantly high throughput and low latency. Premium Page Blobs provide provisioned disk performance up to 7,500 IOPS and 250 MBps per blob.

You can attach Premium Page Blobs to VM sizes with the “s” denomination for Premium Unmanaged Disk support (for example, Dsv1, Dsv2 and Gs). It is also recommended to use Managed Disks for VM persistent Storage for higher availability.

Pricing for Premium Page Blobs depends on:

  • Size of disks provisioned.
  • Outbound data transfer.
Page Blob types P10 P20 P30 P40 P50 P60
Size 128 GB 512 GB 1 TB 2 TB 4 TB 8 TB
Price per month $- $- $- $- $- $-
IOPS per Page Blob 500 2,300 5,000 7,500 7,500 7,500
Throughput per Page Blob 100 MB/second 150 MB/second 200 MB/second 250 MB/second 250 MB/second 250 MB/second
There are no transaction costs for Premium Page Blobs.

Your Premium Page Blob is charged based on the lowest type that supports your target size.

* Azure does not support attaching P60 as a disk to VMs at this time. P60 is only supported as Page Blobs accessible through REST.

We also support three additional page blob types that require you to deploy with Blob Tier set explicitly. If you deploy the page blob or unmanaged disks only specifying the target size, it will be rounded up to the supported page blob types listed in the table above.

Note: Snapshots are charged at $-/GB per month.

Standard Page Blob prices

Standard Page Blobs use hard disk drive (HDD)-based storage media. They are best suited for development, testing and other infrequently accessed workloads that are less sensitive to performance variability. Standard page blobs are billed on size used and with each transaction.

Prices for Standard Page Blobs depend on:

  • Volume of data stored per month.
  • Quantity and types of operations performed, plus outbound data transfer cost.
  • Data redundancy.
