Page Blobs

Optimized for random read and write options

Apply for trial Buy Now

Page Blobs are optimized for random read and write options. Page Blobs are ideal for scenarios that require the ability to overwrite a random small segment at a known address, like storing index-based and sparse data structures. Page blobs can be accessed through REST protocol or attached to a VM to support disk traffic as Unmanaged Disks.

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.

Premium Page Blobs prices

Premium Non-Managed Disk, a high-performance storage based on a solid state drive (SSD), aims to support I/O intensive workloads through extremely large throughput and extremely low delay. With the help of Premium Non-Managed Disk, we can set permanent disk and configure its size and performance characteristics.

The total expenses of Premium Non-Managed Disk depends on the disk size and quantity, and is subjected to the data transfer. The disk size provides different input/output operations per second (IOP), throughput limit and monthly pricing per GB. We can select necessary options most appropriate to applications, including storage size, IOP and throughput. We can add several permanent disks onto the VM and configure at most 64 TB storage space to every VM. The disk throughput of every VM can reach up to 80,000 (number of input/output operations per second) and 1600 MB/second, with a read delay of less than 1 millisecond. Premium Non-Managed Disk is supported by the sizes of the DS Series, DSv2 Series and FS Series VMs exclusively used for Premium Disk. The pricing and billing standards of DS Series VMs are the same as the D Series VMs.

*The following prices are tax-inclusive.

*Monthly pricing estimates are based on 744 hours of usage per month.

There are no transaction costs for Premium Page Blobs. Your Premium Page Blob is charged based on the lowest type that supports your target size.

1 Azure does not support P60 serving as the disk of the Virtual Machine. Page Blob supports accessing P60 through REST.

We also support three additional page blob types that require you to deploy with Blob Tier set explicitly. If you deploy the page blob or unmanaged disks only specifying the target size, it will be rounded up to the supported page blob types listed in the table above.

Operations prices for Page Blobs used as Unmanaged Disks

We charge ¥0.0051 per 10,000 transactions for Standard Page Blobs attached to VM and used as Unmanaged Disks. Any type of operation against against Unmanaged Disks is counted as a transaction including reads, writes, and deletes.

Operations prices for Page Blobs (Non-disks)

Page Blob transactions that are not performed through a VM are billed on a per-transaction basis. For each transaction, a single operation is billed as either a write, a read, or a delete operation. If a read or write transaction is larger than 64 KB, an additional read or write input/output (IO) is billed for each additional 64 KB, up to a maximum of 15 IOs per transaction. If the transaction is larger than 1 MB [64 KB x (1 transaction + 15 IOs)], no further IOs will be charged, regardless of the size of the transaction.

*The following prices are tax-inclusive.

Standard Page Blob prices

Standard Disks employ a hard disk drive (HDD)-based storage medium. They are most suitable for development/testing not sensitive to performance changes and other non-frequent access workloads.

Standard unmanaged disk storage charges for stored data size (GB) , quantity of transactions and data transfer.

*The following prices are tax-inclusive.

Local Redundant Storage (LRS) Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS) Read/Access Geo-Redundant Storage (RA-GRS)
¥ 0.275/GB ¥ 0.55/GB ¥ 0.66/GB

Operations prices for Page Blobs used as Unmanaged Disks

We charge ¥0.0037 per 10,000 transactions for Standard Page Blobs attached to VM and used as Unmanaged Disks. Any type of operation against against Unmanaged Disks is counted as a transaction including reads, writes, and deletes.

Operations prices for Page Blobs (Non-disks)

If the transactions of Page Blob are not performed by Virtual Machines, billing is done by the transaction. For every transaction, a single operation shall be considered as write, read or delete for billing. If the size of the read or write is more than 64 KB, an extra read/write (IO) expense will be charged for every excess of 64 KB, and up to 15 IO are charged per transaction. If the size of a transaction is more than 1 MB [64 KB x (1 transaction + 15 IOs)], other IOs are not charged, irrespective of the size of transactions.

We guarantee that we can successfully process data reading requests from an offsite redundant storage (RA-GRS) account at least 99.99% of the time (99.9% for the Cold Access Layer), provided that we will retry in the secondary zone from the data writing failure from the primary zone.

We guarantee that we can successfully process data reading from local redundant storage (LRS) and offsite redundant storage (GRS) accounts at least 99.9% of the time (99% for the Cold Access Layer)

We guarantee that we can successfully process data writing requests into onsite redundant storage (LRS) and geo-redundant storage (GRS) accounts and read and access geo-redundant storage (RA-GRS) accounts at least 99.9% of the time (99% for the Cold Access Layer).
