Supported Azure Blob access tiers and regions

Contributors netapp-tonacki

BlueXP tiering supports two access tiers and most regions.

Supported Azure Blob access tiers

When you set up data tiering to Azure, BlueXP tiering automatically uses the Hot access tier for your inactive data. BlueXP tiering can apply a lifecycle rule so the data transitions from the Hot access tier to the Cool access tier after a certain number of days.

If you do not choose the Cool access tier, then the data remains in the Hot access tier and no rules are applied.

When you configure a BlueXP tiering lifecycle rule, you must not configure any lifecycle rules when setting up the container in your Azure account.

Supported Azure regions

BlueXP tiering supports tiering to any storage account in any region that can be accessed via the Connector.
