Azure Blob Storage

Massively scalable and secure object storage for cloud-native workloads, archives, data lakes, high-performance computing, and machine learning

Store and access unstructured data at scale

Azure Blob Storage helps you create data lakes for your analytics needs, and provides storage to build powerful cloud-native and mobile apps. Optimize costs with tiered storage for your long-term data, and flexibly scale up for high-performance computing and machine learning workloads.

Build powerful cloud-native applications

Blob storage is built from the ground up to support the scale, security, and availability needs of mobile, web, and cloud-native application developers. Use it as a cornerstone for serverless architectures such as Azure Functions. Blob storage supports the most popular development frameworks, including Java, .NET, Python, and Node.js, and is the only cloud storage service that offers a premium, SSD-based object storage tier for low-latency and interactive scenarios.
