Azure Blob Storage

Azure Blob Storage easily and cost-effectively stores hundreds of objects, or hundreds of millions. It allows petabytes of capacity and massive scalability. You pay only for what you use, saving you more than on-premises storage options. It’s designed for applications that require performance, high availability, and security—offering both client-side encryption and server-side encryption. Blob storage is ideal for storing big data for analysis, whether using an Azure analytics service or your own on-premises solution.

Advantages: geo-replication; low storage costs; scalability and data sharing outside of the Hadoop cluster.

Administrative tools: PowerShell, AzCopy.

Development: .NET, Java, Android, C++, Node.js, PHP, Ruby, and Python; REST API with HTTP/HTTPS requests.
