  • Hi,

    no blob storage can only be reached on HTTP/REST

    however, you CAN mount Windows Server to Azure File Storage

  • If you are trying to backup a VM I would look at Azure Backup or Azure Site Recovery rather than trying to write to Blob storage directly.

  • Yes, you CAN mount SMB file storage to Windows/Linux VM IF you select Azure Files as storage.

    Once share is mounted you can use Veeam to backup your whole VM (mounted share included)
