The best way to store your unstructured data

Azure Blob Storage is one of the ways to store data in Azure and is a massively scalable object storage solution for unstructured data.

As more businesses adopt a remote working model, employees need to be able to reliably access files, resources, and applications as though they were in the office. For many organisations this means that they must store large amounts of unstructured data and allow access from anywhere in the world.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner for Azure, UK based specialists from igroup will advise and support customers so that they can take best advantage of Azure data centres for the storage and distribution of data.

High availability managed cloud data storage

Azure Blob Storage is a service for storing large amounts of unstructured object data, such as text or binary data. Companies can use Blob (Binary Large Object) storage to allow data to be accessed publicly or to store application data privately. 

Did You Know

Using the right storage solution can improve infrastructure efficiency and reduce costs

There are many reasons why your company would want to use Blob storage, for example you may want to share files with clients, or off-load some of the static content from your web servers to reduce the load on them.  Blob storage is particularly useful for companies that would like to take advantage of Microsoft Azure data centres and infrastructure to service remote employees.

igroup has worked with hundreds of companies who want to move to the cloud or improve on what they already have and how a company handles and stores data is a key feature of any planning done by our consultancy team as the plan, architect and deploy a solution.

Because Blob storage is generally used for large unstructured files that need to be accessed through http or https the types of data generally handled are:

  • Serving images or documents directly to a browser.
  • Storing files for distributed access.
  • Streaming video and audio.
  • Writing to log files.
  • Storing data for backup and restore, disaster recovery, and archiving.
  • Storing data for analysis by an on-premises or Azure-hosted service.

Using Azure Blob Storage for business data delivers multiple advantages including convenience, efficiency, scalability, and security.
