Public preview: Azure Cold Storage
Published date: May 04, 2023
Azure Blob Storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data. With blob access tiers, you can store your blob data in the most cost-effective manner based on how frequently it will be accessed and how long it will be retained. Now Azure Blob Storage adds a new online access tier, cold, in addition to hot, cool and archive.
Cold tier pricing is positioned between cool and archive, with 90-day early deletion policy. See the prices in Azure Blob Storage pricing. You can seamlessly use the cold tier the way you use hot and cool, through REST API, SDK, tools, and lifecycle management policy. Cold public preview is now available in Canada Central, Canada East, France Central and Korea Central.
