Append Blob Pricing RRS feed

  • Question

  • The pricing information for storage accounts (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/storage/) contains pricing for block blobs but nothing specific for append blobs.  Are append blobs priced like block blobs?

  • As the pricing calculator also does not mention append blobs, and no information can be found indicating otherwise, it's safe to assume append blocks are indeed priced the same as block blobs. You will have to pay extra per transaction, so if you do a lot of appends this might increase the cost.

  • Hello rdmagm0626,

    Yes. Append blobs are similar to block blobs. They are optimized for append operations so the number of transactions against the blob will also need to be considered.
