Azure archive blob storage and blob-level tiering

In preview This is now available in preview.

Date Updated: 24 August 2017

Azure Archive Blob storage provides a cold storage option for customers interested in lowering their storage costs for rarely accessed data. Archive Blob storage exists alongside the Hot and Cool Storage tiers and provides 256-bit at rest Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption for archived data. Archive Blob storage can be accessed through the Blob storage account UI, programmatically via REST API, or via a variety of other language SDKs. Archive Blob storage also provides blob-level tiering which makes it easy to move objects among Hot, Cool and Archive storage tiers. Availability for the public preview will be limited to the US East 2 region.
