Backup files in blob container RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    Does anyone know if there are any apps/utilities to automate purging of blobs in Azure containers? We are backing up all our SQL databases to these containers but need some way to housekeep them.  For example, only the last FULL backup from a UAT server and deleting all log backups over six months old where a FULL exists.

    Just asking before I write my own.
