How to calculate ball park time taken to upload payload to Azure Storage Blobs


  • Hi All,

    1. We have an application on Azure (India West – Mumbai region) and we have a web service hosted on some other servers (not Azure) – presumably in UK. As a first step, we want our application (on Azure) to connect to this web service and download images from this web service. The payload size is about 17 GB. We need to know how much time it will take for our application to download this payload in an optimistic scenario with certain assumptions. 
    2. Once we have downloaded the data in our application (on Azure), we wanted to know how much time it will take to upload this payload of 17 GB to Azure Storage blobs. 

    Is there any method which we can follow to help us calculate the time? We can be optimistic and consider best case scenarios and some assumptions to calculate the same. 
    We need this data so that we can calculate how Azure can help us cut down the time – as compared to an on-premise set up.

    Regards, Saurabh

  • Try the upload tests from here to estimate

  • Thanks Nick for the reply. Appreciate it a lot!

    We have already tried this. Wanted to know if this is the best way to check for the speeds when it comes to Azure.

    Is there any other option or method?

  • This is the only test I am aware of. It should be the best test as you can select whichever Azure datacenter in question.
