    Hi can blobs have premium tier? Found this note on https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/access-tiers-overview


    Data stored in a premium block blob storage account cannot be tiered to hot, cool, or archive using Set Blob Tier or using Azure Blob Storage lifecycle management. To move data, you must synchronously copy blobs from the block blob storage account to the hot tier in a different account using the Put Block From URL API or a version of AzCopy that supports this API. The Put Block From URL API synchronously copies data on the server, meaning the call completes only once all the data is moved from the original server location to the destination location.”

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, Azure blob has a premium tier. But this only relates to the type of storage account. When creating blob accounts, you have two options: Standard general-purpose v2 or premium block blob.

    Currently, there are only three access tiers in Azure blob storage: Hot, cool and archive.

    Azure Blob access tier and premium tier are different features of Azure Blob. Take note that premium tier is used for use cases wherein your application has high transaction rates or require low latency.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions. I would be glad to answer them.

    Thank you.
