Total cost of Block Blob storage depends on:

  • Volume of data stored per month.
  • Quantity and types of operations performed, along with any data transfer costs.
  • Data redundancy option selected.

Pricing Details

General Purpose v2 provides access to the latest Azure storage features, including Cool and Archive storage, with pricing optimized for the lowest GB storage prices. These accounts provide access to Block Blobs, Page Blobs, Files, and Queues.

Cool and Archive early deletion

In addition to the per-GB, per-month charge, any blob that is moved to Archive is subject to an Archive early deletion period of 180 days. Additionally, for General Purpose v2 accounts, any blob that is moved to Cool is subject to a Cool early deletion period of 30 days. This charge is prorated. For example, if a blob is moved to Archive and then deleted or moved to the Hot tier after 45 days, the customer is charged an early deletion fee equivalent to 135 (180 minus 45) days of storing that blob in Archive.

4 Network costs are charged separately.

For blobs in Archive, the only valid operations are GetBlobProperties, GetBlobMetadata, ListBlobs, SetBlobTier, and DeleteBlob. Setting the tier from Archive to Hot or Cool typically takes up to 15 hours to complete.

Data transfer prices for Block Blobs (per GB)

When you write data into GRS accounts, that data will be replicated to another Azure region. The Geo-Replication Data Transfer charge is for the bandwidth of replicating that data to another Azure region. This charge also applies when you change the account replication setting from LRS to GRS or RA-GRS.

LRS GRS OR RA-GRS
N/A ¥0.67/GB

Blob Storage accounts provide access to the latest features, but not to Page Blobs, Files, Queues, or Tables.
