Hi Everyone,

 

I am looking at Azure Blob Storage (cool tier) for a customer to archive older files from their on-premise file server.

 

This is going to cost the customer $X per month in addition to their current Microsoft 365 licenses.

 

Can someone please tell me why the customer would choose this option over using a document library within SharePoint? SharePoint storage is already included with their current 365 licenses.

 

Does Azure Storage offer any benefits that are worth the extra costs?

 

Thanks for your advice!
