Overall Satisfaction with Azure Blob Storage
Azure Blob Storage is equivalent to Amazon's S3, but better because it supports HTTPS. It lets us host files of any size and automatically replicates them across several regions. It offers various tiers of storage so we can choose the price/performance we want based on our business requirements. It has robust access controls to ensure only the correct program/person accesses the files.
- File (blob) storage from anywhere.
- Access control.
- Easy replication and encryption.
- Allowed us to store files more cheaply than on-prem.
- Allowed us to store files securely.
- Allowed us to transport files with HTTPS easily.
- Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) and NetApp StorageGRID
Azure Blob Storage is the best choice to store files when the app runs in Azure. It also has some advantages over S3, like Shared Access Signatures, that make it easy to control access to files directly via a URL. Azure Blob Storage is very fast and we have not had any major issues with it after using it for several years.
Do you think Azure Blob Storage delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Azure Blob Storage's feature set?
Did Azure Blob Storage live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Azure Blob Storage go as expected?
Would you buy Azure Blob Storage again?
Azure Blob Storage is great for storing files of all types and making them accessible anywhere across the world. Shared access signatures can provide temporary access to a file, which is nice when compared to competitors like S3 since the access control is embedded in the URL, rather than needing to use an AWS identity.
