Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of blob storage lifecycle management. The feature set offers a rich, rule-based policy engine which you can use to transition your data to the best access tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle. See our post on the Azure Blog to get started: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blob-storage-lifecycle-management-public-preview/preview/.
