downloading blobs from azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have deployed an executable in my worker role which uses as an input the text file stored in azure storage account. But downloading it is so slow.

    How can I make this process faster? which type of file will be the best?

    Thanks.

  • Nithin,

    The size of my file is 140 mb and it takes 120seconds. The spped of my internet connection is 100.0 Mbps.

     Is that normal?
