    Hi,

    Refer to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/azure-subscription-service-limits/ for more information about the limit of Azure.

    >Is there any limit to the amount of policies for SAS

    We could find below snippet in above article:

    Max number of stored access policies per container, file share, table, or queue 5

    So if you want to define SAS in your access policy, we could only create 5 per container. If you want to create SAS without an access policy, I think there is no limit.

    >Is there any limit to the amount of blob storage containers within azure storage.  

    There is no limit on the number of the containers in a storage account. But 100 max number of storage accounts is limit per subscription. and 500TB is the limit per storage account. We could find more storage limits from the link I provided.

    Best Regards,
