Azure classic storage accounts will be retired on 31 August 2024
Published date: March 29, 2022
In August 2021, we announced Azure Cloud Services (classic) will be retired on 31 August 2024. Because classic storage accounts are dependent on Azure Cloud Services (classic), they'll be retired on the same date. Before that date, you'll need to migrate them to Azure Resource Manager, which provides the same capabilities as well as new features, including:
- A management layer that simplifies deployment by enabling you to create, update, and delete resources.
- Resource grouping, which allows you to deploy, monitor, manage, and apply access control policies to resources as a group.
Beginning 1 August 2022, you'll no longer be able to create new classic storage account resources, however, resources created before that date will be supported through 31 August 2024.
