Is there a hard limit for the number of containers that can be created for a storage account blob service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I am exploring the capabilities and limits of ADLS Gen1 and ALDS Gen2. Reading through this document I see limits for a number of blob storage components: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/scalability-targets. I am looking to see the limits of container creation for blob storage but I am unable to find documentation for this. Is there any documentations for limits on the number of containers that can be created for a blob storage account?



    Best Regards, 


    Terrell

    No, there's no limit on the number of storage containers in a storage account.

    The limit is 250 accounts per subscription per region. So, one subscription could have 250 storage accounts in 7 different regions.

    Hope this helps!

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