Blogging on Azure Stuff

What is classed as a Storage transaction for billing purposes in Windows Azure?

The simple answer is that each REST call made to the Azure Storage Service is counted as a single transaction. This means that each time you query your table or check the size of a queue or upload a blob you will call the Azure Storage REST api and it will be classed as a transaction. It also means that if you are doing a full table query and you start to get continuation tokens you will get multiple transactions.
