Blob Container Partitioning RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm expecting to store thousands of small to medium size files for thousands of users in Azure Blob Storage. Given Neil's following statement taken from another thread:

    The hierarchical structure in Azure Blobs is only one level deep - the container. However, Azure Blobs supports a simulation of a deeper structure by providing support for multiple delimiters in a blob name. For example, you can name a blob folder/secondLevelFolder/thirdLevelFolder/fileName.txt to simulate a multi-level folder structure

    I assume that organizing the blobs in a directory per user would provide no performance benefits since the folder structure below the container is just syntactic sugar. Is that correct?
