single block blob throughput limit

containers to go 21 Reputation points

I wanted to confirm that there are no specific throughput limits on writing a single block blob to an azure v2 standard storage account.

This article states that single block blob adheres to storage account ingress limit: ... ty-targets

This article indicates the ingress limit is 60 Gbps for our azure region:

Yet our Veeam appliance in Azure is consistenly only getting 60 MB/s. Also see old documentation referencing single blob limit of 60 MB/s so wanted to confirm that there is no present throughput limit on writing a single block blob to azure standard v2 sa container.

Also, I have confirmed that the VM is not constrained on VM or data disk througput or IOPS. I have service endpoint enabled on vNET.

any advice, greatly appreciated !!

    Hi @containers to go

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, thank you for posting your query here!

    Throughput for a single blob depends on several factors, including, but not limited to: concurrency, request size, performance tier, speed of source for uploads, and destination for downloads. To take advantage of the performance enhancements of high-throughput block blobs, upload larger blobs or blocks. Specifically, call the Put Blob or Put Block operation with a blob or block size that is greater than 4 MiB for standard storage accounts.

    Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.
