Azure Blob storage object replication is now generally available

Published date: September 09, 2020

Object replication is a new capability for block blobs that lets you replicate your data from your blob container in one storage account to another anywhere in Azure. We are announcing the general availability of Azure Blob storage object replication.

Object replication unblocks a new set of common replication scenarios:

  • Minimize latency – Users consume the data locally rather than issuing cross-region read requests.
  • Increase efficiency – Compute clusters process the same set of objects locally in different regions.
  • Optimize data distribution – Data consolidated in a single location for processing/analytics and then distribute only resulting dashboards to your offices worldwide.
  • Minimize cost – Tier down your data to Archive upon replication completion using lifecycle management policies to minimize the cost.
