Default storage capacity for Dynamics 365 is 10GB with extra capacity accruing at 5GB per 20 users. This can often prove insufficient if organizations have large volumes of attachments.
Email and note attachments often consume the most storage space so it will be more cost effective to store these in Azure Blob rather than the D365 tenant.
Using the Attachment Management add-on app, attachments are automatically be stored on Block Blob through Dynamics 365.
The immediate benefit is that Azure Storage costs are significantly cheaper compared to purchasing more D365 storage capacity.
Added flexibility through pay-as-you-go pricing means that organizations get a competitive price for their cloud data storage, and only pay for what they need.
Attachment Manager enables users to retrieve files on-demand with a single click. Further options include multiple file uploads and attachment download previews.
Built on Dynamics 365, Attachment Manager works on Dynamics CRM 2016, and above, enabling admins to optimize data storage and save money.

Azure Blob storage costs split into two sections.
- Recurring storage fees apply for each month with tiered rate priced per GB / month
- Transaction fees applied every time you want to add a new file, or access existing files
