Is Azure page blob the same as a file share? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is Azure page blob the same as a file share?

    storage account> click on blob> create container> how do I know if this a page blob or a unstructured blob (object storage)?

    Not finding any way to tell the two blobs apart?

  • No - it's not.

    If you are looking for an equivalent of a file share in regard to blob service, then that would be a container.

    If you are working in Azure portal, then you'll be creating block blobs. If you want to have more control, use Storage Explorer, PowerShell/CLI, or REST API.
