IN PREVIEW

Azure Blob versioning public preview now available

Published date: 15 May, 2020

Applications and users create, update and delete data in Azure Blob storage continuously. A common requirement is the ability to manage and access both current and historical versions of the data. For example, an application which accepts contracts from customers has a requirement to keep all versions of the contract while keeping the same object name.

As the next step to enhance data management and protection, we are excited to announce the Blob storage versioning preview. Azure Blob versioning automatically maintains previous versions of an object and identifies them with version IDs. You can list both the current blob and previous versions using version ID timestamps. You can also access and restore previous versions as the most recent version of your data if it was erroneously modified or deleted by an application or other users.

You can start previewing this feature on any existing or new General-purpose (GPv2) storage accounts in France South, France Central, Canada East and Canada Central regions.
