SFTP on blob storage charges/pricing

Sky High 311 Reputation points

Hi MS,

We intend to use SFTP on blob storage which is currently in preview. What is the pricing for this service? Is it available for free of charge during the preview stage?

Please confirm.

    @Sky High Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    No charge during preview. During the public preview, the use of SFTP does not incur any additional charges. However, the standard transaction, storage, and networking prices for the underlying Azure Data Lake Store Gen2 account still apply. SFTP might incur additional charges when the feature becomes generally available.

    Transaction and storage costs are based on factors such as storage account type and the endpoint that you use to transfer data to the storage account. To learn more, see Understand the full billing model for Azure Blob Storage.

    Note: SFTP support is currently in PREVIEW and is available on general-purpose v2 and premium block blob accounts. Complete this form BEFORE using the feature in preview. Registration via 'preview features' is NOT required and confirmation email will NOT be sent after filling out the form. You can IMMEDIATELY access the feature.

    After testing your end-to-end scenarios with SFTP, please share your experience via this form.

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