I am trying to estimate the MS side Azure pricing of utilizing the new DP 9.08 Azure device. Looking at microsofts pricing tool that is linked here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/?service=storage
What does DP use/require for the destination blob type storage on the Azure side? Namely, is it:
type: Block blob
pricing tier: standard blob storage account
access tier (either one, but 'cool' works ok)
Capacity? only 1TB max?...
Basically, I'd love to hear a simple explanation of how this is configured on the azure side and perhaps a screen shot of what this looks like in practice and what dimensions/types are required on the Azure side so I that can estimate MS-side cost. I mean, I can guestimate my storage needs and nightly transfer, but am wondering how that data gets divy'd up when the data is transfered from a file library to Azure via object copy job. 1 blob or multiple blobs per filesystem object? or multiple filesystem objects per blob if small enough? etc.
I will of course reach out to MS as well, but they probably won't know how DP uses the blob object store and will be of limited help.
