Azure File share to blob storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    We all know that Azure blob storage is cheaper than File storage, so we are trying to move 5 TB of different type of files (logs) from file share to blob storage

    We were able to move some of the files of 5 TB to blob container already, however, we are still not clear future challenges we may face because of this conversion from files to block blobs. Could someone help please?

    1) Will there be issues in retrieving individual files once files are converted to block blobs? so far we have not seen, however we are not sure about retrieving random KB sized files out of 5 TB of lakhs of block blobs

    2) In Block Blobs will the size of individual file would be considered same as it's original size or any other constraints?

    3) Is it at all a good practice? moving files to block blobs?

    Thanks in advance!
