    Thank you for your feedback. We would like to get more feedback about this item before we prioritize. Is the ask here to replicate a storage account on-demand ? Or have a mechanism to always keep two or more storage accounts in sync ?

    Meanwhile, to unblock some of our users we have published a sample that copies blobs from an account to another account: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/scripts/storage-common-transfer-between-storage-accounts?toc=%2fpowershell%2fmodule%2ftoc.json

    This would be really handy for both backup and testing purposes. Suppose I want to test a new release against a copy of my production storage data, I'd like to just snapshot the entire thing into a test account without having to copy blog and table data manually into a new account. Being able to simply clone a storage account would also be really handy for backup purposes if I wanted to copy off a production account at a given time for quick restoration at a later time. I know we can do this manually.
