4 Comments on Hot/Cold/Archive Blob Tiering in Azure

  1. We have tons of old vhd’s that we need to keep and I assume that archival of page blobs is still not supported ?

    • Page blobs no … but store them as blobs.

      • Is storing VHDs as block blobs a viable option if one wanted to mount them to an Azure VM in the future?

        For example, I store a VHD as a block blob in Archive tier for 2 years. Then I get a request to spin up a VM from that VHD – one cannot convert a block blob to a page blob to attach to the VM, so how would you envision that request being met?
