    There are two different things here, compute and storage.

    The different SKU's of virtual machines offer different hardware profiles, different amounts of CPU, Memory, Disk and Network, and different ratios of each of these.
    The different storage tiers (Hot, Cool, Archive) offer different levels of SLA and retrieval times with different costs to reflect that.

    If you are looking for more information please add some more details to your question.

    Thank you! I found some additional information on this page here, @Sam Cogan pricing tier

    • The Basic tier is designed for workloads requiring light compute and I/O performance. Examples include servers used for development or testing, or small-scale infrequently used applications.
    • General Purpose is for most business workloads requiring balanced compute and memory with scalable I/O throughput. Examples include servers for hosting Web and Mobile apps, and other enterprise applications. The
    • Memory Optimized tier is for high performance database workloads requiring in-memory performance for faster transaction processing and higher concurrency. Examples include servers for processing real-time data and high performance transactional or analytical apps.
