Microsoft will retire classic Azure storage accounts on 31 August 2024. It means that users will no longer access to these accounts from that date.
Before that date, you’ll need to migrate your classic storage accounts to Azure Resource Manager to avoid losing access to your data.
Azure Resource Manager is the deployment and management service for Azure. It provides the same capabilities as well as new features, including:
- A management layer that simplifies deployment by enabling you to create, update, and delete resources.
- Resource grouping, which allows you to deploy, monitor, manage and apply access control policies to resources as a group.
Note: Beginning 1 August 2022, you'll no longer be able to create new classic storage account resources, however, resources created before that date will be supported through 31 August 2024.
