Archive Storage is now available in three new regions
Posted on Wednesday, October 31, 2018
Archive Storage is now available in 25 regions globally, including three additional Azure regions—US Gov VA, US Gov TX, and US Gov AZ.
Azure Archive Storage provides cloud storage for rarely accessed data with flexible latency requirements starting at an industry leading price point (0.2 cents per GB/month). This is another tier of Blob Storage in addition to hot and cool. All archive operations are 100 percent consistent with hot and cool so you can seamlessly move your data among all three tiers programmatically or using lifecycle management policies (in preview). The archive tier is supported by many leading storage industry partners.
