Microsoft Announces Larger, Higher Scale Storage Accounts
One of the fastest areas of growth in cloud computing is around data storage. With a variety of workloads such as IoT telemetry, logging, media, genomics and archival driving cloud data growth, the need for scalable capacity, bandwidth, and transactions for storing and analyzing data for business insights, is more important than ever.
Up to 10x increase to Blob storage account scalability We are excited to announce improvements in the capacity and scalability of standard Azure storage accounts, which greatly improves your experience building cloud-scale applications using Azure Storage. Effective immediately, Azure Blob storage accounts can support the following larger limits:
|Max capacity for Blob storage accounts||5PB (10x increase)|
|Max TPS/IOPS for Blob storage accounts||50K (2.5x increase)|
|Max ingress for Blob storage accounts||50Gbps (2.5-10x increase)|
|Max egress for Blob storage accounts||50Gbps (2.5-5x increase)|
These new limits apply to both new and existing Blob storage accounts. You can continue to leverage all of your favorite features in these storage accounts at-scale, without any changes required. The new limits are available for all commercial clouds. We plan to raise limits similarly for Government and National clouds in the near future. Stay tuned for more information!
Please contact Azure Support to get your Blob storage accounts raised to these new limits for storage capacity, TPS/IOPS, ingress or egress. We are also actively working to increase these numbers even further, so contact us even if your workload requires even higher capacity.
