Need help with Microsoft Azure Storage

Hi,

I have resources of size more than 8TB in my Azure environment, I want to archive all these resources so that the cost cuts come down to a minimum. How do I achieve this?

NOTE - This is urgent

Thank you

If your data is already in a storage account you can add lifecycle management policies to automatically move your data to archive storage. If you need to upload the data you can use AzCopy to upload directly to archive storage.


Hope this helps. Let us know if you still have questions or run into any issues.

It is 8TB Azure Resources including VMs, Storage Containers, VNETs, SQL Storages etc.
So, my concern is how do I create an archive for all of these so that I don't have to pay for services.

Sorry, I'm completely new to this Azure and correct me if I'm missing anything.

Archive storage is not free, pricing for that can be found here. It sounds like you want to stop being billed for resources yet still retain them as available which unfortunately is not possible. I might creating a free support request with our Billing and Subscription team to see if there is some assistance they can provide. Outside of that you will continue to be billed for the data that remains in Azure.
