In September 2018, Microsoft announced that Azure Archive Storage will become generally available in 8 additional Azure regions.
Azure Archive Storage is an archive tier of Microsoft Azure Blob Storage in addition to hot and cool tiers. It is designed to help organizations reduce their storage costs by storing rarely accessed data in a lowest-priced tier. Microsoft offers an industry leading price point for archiving data (0.2 cents per GB/month).
All archive operations in Azure Archive Storage are consistent with hot and cool tiers, so users can move their data among all three tiers programmatically or use lifecycle management policies. Archive tier will become generally available in new 8 Azure regions including Australia East, Australia Southeast, East Asia, Southeast Asia, UK West, UK South, Japan East, and Japan West.
We are glad to announce support for new Azure Archive Blob Storage regions in CloudBerry Backup.
