What is the cost of the backup of Azure File Share? RRS feed

All replies

  • We are currently working on final stage of Azure File share backup cost. 

    I would request you to please fill up the below mentioned pricing survey based on your requirements/expectations?

    Azure Backup pricing on Azure File Share:

     All the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

    Additional information: To give you an idea, there would be a nominal “Protected Instance" cost similar to how it is currently being applied for backing up Azure VMs. Since we use File Share snapshots, the cost of snapshots would get billed along with Azure Files bill. The amount of extra GB due to snapshots depends on the churn of the files present in File Shares.

    Storage: You can choose between Locally Redundant Storage (LRS) or Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS) for their backup vault. The net price for Storage depends on the amount of data stored with the service.

    These two components appear as separate line items on the monthly Azure bill

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
