Difference between Premium vs Standard general-purpose v2 for File Share

Difference between Premium vs Standard general-purpose v2 for File Share?
What is the Throughput ?

We have 35TB data in On-premises, which is the best file share service to choose (Premium or Standard) for migrating Data along with file meta data like Permissions, Date, etc.
Please suggest.

Thanks in Advance.

@Yuvaraj-0815 Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

The following table describes the types of storage accounts recommended by Microsoft for most scenarios. All of these use the Azure Resource Manager deployment model.

I would recommend to choose Standard Storage Account GPV2 for your scenario.

For more information: Please refer to this article

ZRS, GZRS, and RA-GZRS are available only for standard general-purpose v2, premium block blobs, and premium file shares accounts in certain regions. For more information, see Azure Storage redundancy.

Premium performance storage accounts use solid-state drives (SSDs) for low latency and high throughput.

The Azure Storage pricing page provides detailed pricing information based on account type, storage capacity, replication, and transactions. The Data Transfers pricing details provides detailed pricing information for data egress. You can use the Azure Storage pricing calculator to help estimate your costs.

Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.

@Yuvaraj-0815 You can use Azure Standard Storage Account - GPv2 ( I would recommend GpV2 Standard for your scenario)
20000 IOPS (20,000, with large file share feature enabled2. 1,000 or 100 requests per 100 ms, default) Throughput(Up to 300 MiB/sec, with large file share feature enabled2 Up to 60 MiB/sec, default)
