Pricing details

Premium Managed Disks

Premium Managed Disks are high performance Solid State Drive (SSD) based Storage designed to support I/O intensive workloads with significantly high throughput and low latency. With Premium Managed Disks, you can provision a persistent disk and configure its size and performance characteristics.

The total cost of Premium Managed Disk depends on the size and number of the disks, and will be affected by the number of outbound data transfers. These disk sizes provide different input/output operations per sec (IOPs), throughput caps and monthly price per GB. You choose the option which best meets your required storage size, IOPs and throughput. Attach several persistent disks to a VM and you can configure up to 64 TB of storage per VM, and achieve 80,000 input/output operations per second, and 1600 MB per second disk throughput per VM at less than one millisecond latency for read operations. Premium Managed Disks are supported by DS-series, DSv2-series, FS-series, and GS-series VM sizes which are specifically targeted for Premium Disks.

Standard Managed Disks

Standard Managed Disks use Hard Disk Drive (HDD) based Storage media. They are best suited for dev/test and other infrequent access workloads that are less sensitive to performance variability.

The total cost of Standard Managed Disk storage depends on the size and number of disks, the number of transactions, and the number of outbound data transfers. There is no difference between standard disk sizes in terms of IOPS and throughput.

Locally Redundant Storage (LRS)

Makes multiple synchronous copies of your data within a single datacenter.

For more details on redundancy options and how they can be used for high availability, please refer to Azure Storage replication page. Please note that not all redundancy types are available for all storage types.

Premium and Standard Managed Snapshots (Copy)

A Managed Snapshot is a read only copy of a managed disk stored as a standard disk. The cost of a Managed Snapshot will be the same as a Standard Managed Disk. For example, if you take a snapshot of a P10 Premium Managed Disk then the cost of a Managed Snapshot will be equivalent to a S10 Standard Disk.
