We've recently started storing our daily backups in Azure Blob Storage and are in the process of adding some lifecycle policies to minimize long-term storage costs. We have Blob Versioning enabled in the storage account and we want to ensure that we'll be able to restore blobs from older versions that are in the Archive tier as expected. From what I understood based on the documentation, the process for restoring a blob from a previous version that's stored in the Archive tier would be:
Rehydrate the previous blob version
Restore the blob from the newly hydrated version
Am I missing anything? I couldn't find any documentation that outlines this exact scenario but I'm reasonably confident that I understand the different parts. Mainly looking for a sanity check, thank you!
