Azure Storage account provides high availability and durability to all storage by replicating the information stored. You can choose the type of replication during the creation of the Azure Storage Account. Depending on where this replica is stored, you can choose different replication strategies such as LRS, ZRS, GRS, and RA-GRS. However, if you want to change the replication strategies you can do it once the storage account created as well. This enables switching between different strategies based on your need.

You must keep in mind, Azure Storage accounts created with a ZRS (Zone-redundant storage) replication strategy cannot be a switch to any other replication strategy. And, ZRS is only available for GPV2 (General Purpose V2) Account Type.
You can switch Azure Storage account replication from LRS (Locally-redundant storage) to GRS (Geo-redundant storage), or RA-GRS ( Read -access geo-redundant storage), and vice versa.
