Windows Azure Lowers Storage Cost for Blob and Table Storage

Microsoft effective immediately, lowered the price of Windows Azure Storage (from $0.15 to $0.14 per GB per month) — along with adding “commitment volume discounts,” which’ll give high-volume customers additional savings, announced Windows Azure team.

“All Windows Azure Storage customers will automatically receive the reduced storage price effective October 26, 2011. High-volume customers with regular usage are eligible for additional savings through the Storage Core Offer,” informed Azure team.

Adding, “We’re thrilled to extend these price discounts following last month’s addition of geo-replication to Windows Azure Storage, which together provide the best value in the industry for cloud storage.”

The table embedded below lists the discounted prices:

For prices above 5 Petabytes per month, customers are asked to contact Microsoft for assistance,” explained Azure team.
