Azure Blob Storage
Azure Blob storage is Microsoft's object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data.
Blob storage is designed for:
- Serving images or documents directly to a browser.
- Storing files for distributed access.
- Streaming video and audio.
It can also be used to act as an origin for files hosted on Azure CDN.
Cloud CMS supports Azure Blob Storage in two ways:
- Azure Deployment Handler
- Azure Binary Storage Provider
Azure Blob Storage Deployment Handler
The Azure Blob Storage Deployment Handler lets you deploy content from Cloud CMS to Azure Blob Storage containers. In this way, editorial users can push content to Azure and Azure CDN with the touch of a button.
For more information on this, please check out the Azure Blob Storage Deployment Handler documentation.
Azure Blob Binary Storage Provider
You can additionally configure Cloud CMS to use Azure Blob Storage as a backing store for all binary content received through the API. For information on this, please check out our formal Docker documentation on setting up binary storage providers for Azure Blob Storage.
