Cold Storage Comes to Microsoft Cloud | Data Center Knowledge

Microsoft’s new service is called Cool Blob Storage, and it costs from $0.01 to $0.048 per GB per month, depending on the region and the total volume of data stored. The range for the “Hot” Blob storage tier is $0.0223 to $0.061 per GB, so some customers will be able to cut the cost of storing some of their data in Microsoft’s cloud by more than 50 percent if they opt for the “Cool” access tier.
