We are going to have a lot of containers in a storage account (around 1,000,000). Is it going to affect reading performance?

    @AlexanderKrayniy-3101 Firstly apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    No , there won't be any performance issue.

    We recommend you review Azure Monitor for Storage (preview). It is a feature of Azure Monitor that offers comprehensive monitoring of your Azure Storage accounts by delivering a unified view of your Azure Storage services performance, capacity, and availability. It does not require you to enable or configure anything, and you can immediately view these metrics from the pre-defined interactive charts and other visualizations included.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
