Support for Azure Storage/Blob

I would love to be able to sync from an azure storage/blob

Thanks for the feedback. I have been wondering when someone would request this. :wink:

also looking for this - I have tried to Setup a Connection with one of the existing Drivers, but it did not work

Yeah… I would definitely love to see this Azure Storage connection also available.

Azure is fastest growing cloud at the moment so support for that is must have.

Is this integration also planned of next major release?
At least I heard that B2 is, but is also Azure blob?

I need this so badly, this would make me want to upgrade to Premium.

I am now uploading all my private stuff to Azure, around 1.3TB - as a redundant copy.

Standard storage blob (hot) is now only $6 per TB a month[EDIT: this is totally wrong - actually is $60], latency is quite low. If you want to go lower than $6 per TB there are always trade-offs which make its usefulness questionable.

By (very unscientific) comparison on Google Drive, Using GoodSync it took forever (around 2-3 hours) just to create empty folders, before starting to actually sync.

On Azure it took 4 minutes to create the folders! Sustained transfer rate is 6-15MB/Sec, slower than Google Drive but still acceptable for me, its the latency that “kills” Google Drive. Synchronizing after initial seeding should be quite fast with Azure.

I will lose convenient way of file sharing with Azure, but connecting to oDrive would solve that.

Any more takers?

Hi @gigaseven,
Thanks for adding you thoughts here. We don’t have Azure on the roadmap, but it is on a list of integrations that we think would be nice to have.

My previous understanding of Azure pricing was that it was about $20/TB for their standard hot tier. Did they recently reduce this?

Have you tried Wasabi storage? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

Seems like I am wrong about Azure pricing by a factor of 10:

That means $60 instead of $6

I am now uploading on Wasabi, upload speed is good but sustained download speed is not great, but that is acceptable for me.
