    I have the same question. This is a typical broken Azure link making it impossible to know the real costs of anything.

    The zones mentioned there are NOT the same as availability zones. Otherwise that would make US Gov an availability zone (it's not), and it would mean US Gov only has a single availability zone (they don't)

    The text at the bottom that says "Regions that correspond to Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3 and Gov can be found here" also indicates that these are NOT availability zones.

    I found this
    It's not Official Microsoft... but it's what I can come up with so far.

    Zone is different from Availability Zone

    Zone is a geographical grouping of Azure Regions for billing purpose. Data transfer pricing is based on the Zones.

    A sub-region is the lowest level geo-location that you may select to deploy your applications and associated data. For data transfers (except CDN), the following regions correspond to Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3, and DE Zone 1.

    Zone 1—Canada Central, Canada East, North Europe, West Europe, France Central, France South, UK South, UK West, Central US, East US, East US 2, US Gov Arizona, US Gov Iowa, US Gov Texas, US Gov Virginia, North Central US, South Central US, West US, West US 2, West Central US
    Zone 2—East Asia, Southeast Asia, Australia Central, Australia Central 2, Australia East, Australia Southeast, Central India, Japan East, Japan West, Korea Central, Korea South, South India, West India
    Zone 3—Brazil South
    DE Zone 1—Germany Central, Germany Northeast
