Azure Blob – Soft Delete for Containers preview region expansion
Published date: October 08, 2020
Azure Blob Storage is committed to providing the best-in-class data protection and recovery capabilities to keep your data safe. Soft delete for containers expands upon Azure Blob Storage’s existing capabilities such as blob versioning, soft delete for blobs, account delete locking, and immutable blobs, making our data protection and restore capabilities even better.
When container soft delete is enabled for a storage account, any deleted container and their contents are retained in Azure Storage for the period that you specify. During the retention period, you can restore previously deleted containers and any blobs within them.
Today, we are expanding the public preview to all public Azure regions. There is no additional charge to enable container soft delete. Data in soft deleted containers is billed at the same rate as active data.
