FAQ

  • Yes. Availability Zone is different from Zone.

    Zone is a geographical grouping of Azure Regions for billing purpose. Data transfer pricing is based on the Zones. For Zone details, please refer to FAQ below.

    Availability Zone is an isolated location inside of an Azure Region, and has its own independent power source, network, and cooling. The physical and logical separation of Availability Zones within an Azure region protects applications and data from zone-level failures. Availability Zone data transfer pricing is based on Availability Zones.

  • Following Availability Zone data transfer is charged:

    • Data transfer, ingress and egress, from a VNet resource deployed in an Availability Zone to another resource in different Availability Zone in the same VNET

    • Data transfer between VNet resources located in same Availability Zone
    • Data transfer between a VNet resource and a Public IP address in the same Azure Region
    • Data transfer between VNet resources located in peered VNets across Availability Zones. This data transfer will be charges as per VNet peering rates.
