Blob Storage

** Official name is: General Purpose V2 Storage Account

Azure Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data. Unstructured data is data that does not adhere to a particular data model or definition, such as text or binary data. Blob storage offers three types of resources:

  • The storage account

  • A container in the storage account

  • A blob in the container

The following diagram shows the relationship between these resources.
