Generally available: Apply Azure storage access tiers to append blobs and page blobs with blob type conversion

Published date: 30 January, 2023

Azure Storage offers different access tiers so that you can store your blob data in the most cost-effective manner based on how it is being used. Azure Storage access tiers include hot tier, cool tier, and archive tier. Azure Storage access tiers support only block blobs natively. When you need to save cost of storing append blobs or page blobs, you can convert them to block blobs then move them into the most cost-efficient tiers based on your access patterns. Blob type conversion along with tiering is now supported by PowerShell, CLI, and AzCopy.
