queues ,blobs and tables on standard vs premium storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • all,

    are 'queues ,blobs and tables" only supported on standard storage ?

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/standard-storage

    this msdn doc says "It also supports blobs, tables, queues, and files"

    now on premium documentation

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/premium-storage

    it says  "Unlike standard Azure Storage, Premium Storage does not support block blobs, append blobs, files, tables, or queues"

    thanks

  • Yes, premium storage account only support blob.

    Azure premium storage account is used for S series VM. It is not recommend to store your file in it. Because it is expensive.

  • Adding to what Natalya Vank has rightly mentioned, Azure Premium storage only supports page blobs because it’s meant to be used as high-performance and low-latency disks for Azure IaaS virtual machines.
