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.
