Cost differences between Classic and V2 blob storage

Jonty Morris 1 Reputation point

Hi there,

We have some old blob storage accounts on the Classic plan.

Migrating to the V2 plan looks appealing, but we want to know more about the pricing differences before making the switch.

Here's some background on our blob usage:

  • we have lots of CMS images that get interacted with frequently.
  • we also write a large number of log files but almost never use read them again.

Can you please discuss the different access tiers for our scenario and advise how the pricing may change from Classic.

Much appreciated,
Jonty from Sportsgound.

    Hi @Jonty Morris
    The first thing we should clarify is there is a difference between the deployment model classic vs arm and the storage version v1 vs v2
    You can upgrade your deployment model from classic to arm and this wont impact the storage account version.

    There are changes in billing from v1 to v2 and this article has quite a lot of detail on how to gather usage metrics and estimate costs.

    One benefit of moving to v2 is you will be able to make use of the lifecycle management features described
    Sounds like it could be useful in your scenario
