  • Shiva,

    There are a few options. Here are the first two that come to mind.

    1. Use the AzCopy Command-Line Tool for Azure Storage
      You can download the tool from here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/

      This is the best tool to copy large amounts of data up to Azure Storage. This will still take a long time and your limit will probably be your internet upload bandwidth.
    2. The other option is to ship the data on a USB drive to Microsoft and have the data copied in. You can find more about his option here:
      Use the Microsoft Azure Import/Export Service to Transfer Data to Blob Storage
