Object replication public preview for Azure Blob storage
Published date: 21 May, 2020
Object replication is a new capability for block blobs that lets you replicate your data from your blob container in one storage account to another anywhere in Azure.
Object replication unblocks a new set of common replication scenarios:
- Minimise latency – have your users consume the data locally rather than issuing cross-region read requests.
- Increase efficiency – have your compute clusters process the same set of objects locally in different regions.
- Optimise data distribution – have your data consolidated in a single location for processing/analytics and then only distribute resulting dashboards to your offices worldwide.
- Minimise cost – tier down your data to Archive upon replication completion using lifecycle management policies to minimise the cost.
Please refer to Object replication documentation for more details.
