I have using storage explorer on my local machine and connected to subscriptions .

Storage Account A in Subscription1 in Tenant ID A --Container -->3 files

Now i made use of Storage explorer to copy the above 3 files from Storage Account A to Storage account B .

Storage account B in Subscription2 in Tenant ID B

./azcopy.exe copy "*?sv=
" --overwrite=prompt --s2s-preserve-access-tier=false --list-of-files "C:\Users\KKAUSH~1\AppData\Local\Temp\stg-exp-azcopy-5db25749-xxxxxxxxc.txt" --recursive --trusted-microsoft-suffixes= --log-level=INFO;

The question that i have here is : Which network is being used to copy these files ? Is that azure backupbone network ? Can you please let me know workflow of this copy operation ?

    Thanks for the question. AzCopy uses server-to-server APIs, so data is copied directly between storage servers. These copy operations don't use the network bandwidth of your computer.

    Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have further questions or issues and we will be happy to assist.
