Storage Disk and Blob GUID Migration

Whether you need the highest availability for mission-critical workloads or cost-effective options for test scenarios, Azure Disk storage gives you the durability, availability and security you need for your virtual machines (VMs). Azure Blob storage provides massively scalable, durable and secure storage for unstructured data. Currently, Azure Disk storage and Blob storage consumption are both measured using the same pricing meters.

As of 6 December 2017, Azure Disk storage and Blob storage consumption will be measured using separate GUIDs. There won’t be pricing or name changes when separating the GUIDs for Disk storage or Blob storage.

See the table below for GUID migration changes.
