  • Hi,

    About how to export data from sql azure database to blob storage, I suggest you could refer to this document (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/hh335292.aspx ).

    And about encrypt the blob data, from my understanding, I don't think we need worry about it. Because we could use the storage key , set the container permission as private or access it using SAS (you could see this post http://stackoverflow.com/a/17170530 ). And if you want to encrypt your data, you could refer to this blog (Encrypting Data in Windows Azure Storage ).

    hope this helps.
