Azure Storage Pricing

Reliable, economical cloud storage for data big and small.

Azure has five types of storage—Blobs, Files, Disks, Tables and Queues. See how they work

Your total cost depends on how much you store, the volume and type of storage transactions and outbound data transfers, and which data redundancy option you choose. Here’s how they compare:

Locally Redundant Storage (LRS) Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS) Geographically Redundant Storage (GRS) Read-Access Geographically Redundant Storage (RA-GRS)
Makes multiple synchronous copies of your data within a single datacenter Stores three copies of data across multiple datacenters within or across regions. For block blobs only. Same as LRS, plus multiple asynchronous copies to a second datacenter hundreds of miles away Same as GRS, plus read access to the secondary 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.

Blob Storage Accounts

Block Blob storage is used for streaming and storing documents, videos, pictures, backups, and other unstructured text or binary data. Below is the pricing for dedicated Blob storage accounts with Hot and Cool access tiers. Append Blobs are also metered as Block Blobs
