Azure storage is billed by the amount of storage used, with a minimum charge of $0.01 per GB-month. The storage is billed in hourly increments, with a maximum charge of $8.00 per hour.
PRO TIP: Billing for Azure storage is based on the amount of data stored, the level of redundancy, and the number of storage transactions. There are four Azure storage billing models: capacity, transaction, blob, and file. Capacity is based on the amount of data stored in an account, while transaction is based on the number of read, write, and delete operations. Blob storage is charged per 10,000 operations, while file storage is charged per 1,000 operations.
The billing cycle is monthly, and the minimum charge is applied each month. If the storage is unused for the month, then the unused storage is carried over to the next month. If the storage is used in the month, then the billed amount is applied.
