Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

Azure Blob Storage Integration

Azure Blob Storage is Microsoft’s popular object storage solution for the cloud. It specializes in storing large amounts of unstructured data at scale. It means that you can now store images, documents, audio, video, or log files on Azure Blob Storage, without any hassle.
Azure Blob Storage is scalable, fast, secure and offers cutting-edge data lifecycle management and access control capabilities. It is fully optimized for data lakes and is very cost-effective, making it a popular cloud storage platform among many top-tier businesses.

What You Can Do with Azure Blob Storage

  • Built to handle large amounts of unstructured data
  • Operates on the principle of ‘store once, access anywhere’
  • Designed for efficient disaster recovery and data backup
  • Allows for quick, accurate and scalable analytics through an on-premise or Azure-hosted service
  • Supports Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, a modern Big Data analytics solution for the cloud

Setting up Azure Blob Storage for storing your event data via different sources can be quite time-consuming. Besides specifying individual buckets to store your data, you need to transform your data manually so that it can be picked up for analysis.

By integrating RudderStack with Azure Blob Storage, you can save precious time in manually configuring your containers.

FAQs

What is Blob Storage in Azure?
Azure Blob Storage is a cloud storage offering by Microsoft Azure for storing large volumes of unstructured data such as text, video, audio, etc. With Azure Blob Storage, you can handle scalable workloads, streaming files and storing files for distributed access.
What is the difference between Blob Storage and file storage?
The key difference between Blob Storage and a file storage system is that while file storage is used for storing and sharing files, blob storage is used to store unstructured data and supports streaming capabilities and distributed access. One other advantage of using Blob Storage is its support for large-scale data workloads. File storage is typically used as a replacement for on-premise file servers.
How do I retrieve data from Azure Blob Storage?
In order to retrieve data from Azure Blob Storage, you can use either Azure Data Factory or programmatically using SDKs. You can also use a standalone command-line tool such as AzCopy or a Microsoft service such as SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).
