Azure blob storage and categorization/symlinks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    any ideas on how to achieve categorization/symlinks with Azure Blob Storage?

    The requirement is that there is not just a single hierarchical path to a given blob, but rather multiple (logical) ways into the same blob.

    I assume we will have to build the categorization on the outside of azure blob storage?

  • Hi torbad,

    Azure blob storage doesn't have infrastructure to support categorization/symlink functions. If you need this function, I think you could utilize Azure Table Storage to store the blobs' categorization/symlinks informations.
