Premium Storage Preview in Brazil South RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, please I would like to know if there is an estimate data for the preview of the premium storage in Brazil South,

    Also, is there any possibility to allow a premium storage preview in a single subscription in Brazil?

    We have a partner in Brazil that have a big case to develop a PaaS solution and they would like to use the storage premium in Brazil.

    Thank you.

  • Hello Marcos,

    Thanks for posting here!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, currently premium storage with General purpose storageV1 & V2 are available in brazil south region. If you are looking for premium block blob storage?

    Then, yes Premium Block Blob Storage is initially available in US East, US East 2, US Central, US West, US West 2, North Europe, West Europe, Japan East, Australia East, Korea Central, and Southeast Asia regions with more regions to come. You can also check the  region availability through the Azure global infrastructure page. Currently preview feature is not available for Brazil south and it planned for future release.

    If you want to register for the Preview for the available regions, you can register using below power shell script.

    To enroll in limited public preview, you will need to submit a request to register this feature for your subscription. After your request is approved, you create a Premium Block Blob storage account.

    Important:- As with most previews, this feature should not be used for production workloads until it reaches GA.

    Connect-AzureRmAccount -SubscriptionId "xxx-xx-xxx-xx-xxxx"
    Register-AzureRmProviderFeature -FeatureName premiumblob -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Storage


    It should take 24-48 hours to process the request. You can check the status of your request by running the following Powershell command:

    Get-AzureRmProviderFeature -FeatureName premiumblob -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Storage

    Using below PowerShell script or using Azure portal as shown below, you can create premium storage account with kind either General purpose storageV1 & V2, which is currently available in Brazil south.

    # Ensure that you have the latest version of PowerShellGet installed. Install-Module PowerShellGet –Repository PSGallery –Force # Open a new PowerShell console and install AzureRm.Storage module. Install-Module Az.Storage –Repository PSGallery -RequiredVersion 1.1.1-preview –AllowPrerelease –AllowClobber –Force #login with your Azure account Connect-AzAccount New-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName "your existing resource group name" -Name "your storage account name" -Location "Brazil south" -Kind "StorageV2 or StorageV1" -SkuName "Premium_LRS"

    The cost depends on the amount of data you store, the account kind and the data replication option. You can find all the information for Azure Storage Pricing here. Hope this helps you!

    Kindly, let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
