Hey folks, Azure Archive Blob Storage has been in public preview for a week now and it is a great storage solution for long-term archiving corporate data. In my latest blog post I explain how to use blob-level tiering and Archive Blob Storage. Happy reading and testing!

There is no ETA yet but I'm pretty confident that it won't take too long until GA. As soon as Azure Archive Blob Storage is GA I will update my blog post - so stay tuned :)
Sure, people can move data from cool to archive storage tier as this is a core feature of Azure Archive Blob Storage. Rehydrating is required as archive storage tier does not allow direct access to blobs. Archive storage is meant to be a cost-efficient, resilient, and secure storage tier for blobs that need to be stored for long-term periods but that don't need to be accessible immediately. Rehydration is done within hours.
