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. See how they compare in the "Data Redundancy Options" section.

Premium Unmanaged Disks & Page blobs

Premium Unmanaged 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 Unmanaged Disks, you can provision a persistent disk and configure its size and performance characteristics.

The total cost of Premium Unmanaged 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 Unmanaged Disks are supported by DS-series, DSv2-series, FS-series, and GS-series VM sizes which are specifically targeted for Premium Disks.

Snapshots are charged at $-/GB per month.

Disk Types P10 P20 P30
Disk Size 128 GB 512 GB 1,024 GB
Price per month $- $- $-
IOPs per disk 500 2,300 5,000
Throughput per disk 100 MB / second 150 MB / second 200 MB / second
There are no transaction costs for Premium Disks.

Standard Unmanaged Disks & Page blobs

Standard 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 Unmanaged Disk storage depends on the size and number of disks, the number of transactions, and the number of outbound data transfers.

Access Prices

We charge $- per 10,000 transactions for Standard Disks & Page Blobs. Any type of operation against the storage is counted as a transaction, including reads, writes and deletes.

Data Redundancy Options

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