Windows azure blob storage (azure blob) is a massively scalable object storage for unstructured data from the Microsoft Windows azure cloud computing platform. Unleash the power of azure blob as an enterprise cloud file server with desktop drive remote access, secure file sharing over web browser, and accompanied by mobile applications on iOS and Android devices.
Simplify Mobile Device File Access to Azure Blob
Every worker is a mobile worker. Every business that are ready for employees to work-from-home has implemented work-from-home policy in 2020. As employees are more distributed from different remote locations, a centralized cloud file server makes sense because cloud storage services such as azure blob are from data centers that are so close to the Internet backbone and they enjoy very high bandwidth and throughput, in addition to fault tolerance and business continuity built into data centers.
For mobile workers, it would be nice for files and folders to follow workers (sync into their devices) on their mobile phones and laptops so they're readily available when needed. Users therefore have a tendency to turn to Dropbox and other 3rd party cloud storage services since they usually work this way.
Azure blob can be turned into a mobile file access and secure file sharing solution since the underlying storage service is reliable and redundant. Here is how it works.
