Azure offers the widest range of cloud storage options to cover all of your needs. Add to this infinite scalability and a model where you only pay for what you need at the time and it’s a compelling option.

Another day, another server, another rack? Not anymore. Blob storage can handle all your unstructured data, scaling up or down as your needs change. You no longer have to manage it, you only pay for what you use, and you save money over on-premises storage options. Choose hot, cool, or archive storage tiers depending on how often the data is accessed. Put rarely accessed data in the cool and archive storage tier, and frequently accessed data in the hot storage tier.
Use Azure Queue storage to build flexible applications and separate functions for better durability across large workloads. When you design applications for scale, application components can be decoupled, so that they can scale independently. Queue storage gives you asynchronous message queueing for communication between application components, whether they are running in the cloud, on the desktop, on-premises, or on mobile devices.
Use Azure Table storage to store petabytes of semi-structured data and keep costs down. Unlike many data stores—on-premises or cloud-based—Table storage lets you scale up without having to manually shard your dataset. Availability also isn’t a concern: using geo-redundant storage, stored data is replicated three times within a region—and an additional three times in another region, hundreds of miles away. Table storage is excellent for flexible datasets—web app user data, address books, device information, and other metadata
