Storage repository with FTP in Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • As I understand it the 'Storage' functions in Azure only covers blobs, tables and queues of services hosted in azure.

    I want to setup a storage repository with FTP so I can schedule automated off-site backups of a linux server outside of the azure environment.

    Is this possible and how would one go about setting this up?

    Thankyou in advance for any feedback.

  • This is currently not possible.

    It would however be possible to add a CloudService that hosts a ftp-server and saved the data in a blob storage. Someone already made this, but I haven't used it myself so not sure if it works correctly.
