  • Hi,

    You can create as many queues as you want provided the storage space occupied by the queues does not exceed the overall storage quota.

    Is there any billing for empty queue created?

    I believe you'll be charged for the storage space occupied by your queues.

    Max number of queue that we can read at once is 5000. How more than 5000 queue can be read.

    When there are more than 5000 queues in your storage account and you request storage service to return queues list, along with the queues storage service also returns a continuation token. You can use that token to get next set of queues. You can read more about listing queues here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd179466.aspx

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Trupti,

    There is no limit on number of queues in Storage account. Each storage account allows you to have 100TB of data across all of your blob, tables and queues. Windows Azure returns upto 5000 queues in one request and also returns a continuation token if your storage account has more queues. So you can list remaining queues by using continuation token in your next request. Please go through http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff959173.aspx for billing details.

    Hope this helps.
