Blob endpoints, sizing recommendations

    Question

  • Hi.

       These are my questions today -

    1) is the blob storage account URI always guaranteed to be of this form - https://<myaccount>.blob.core.windows.net? Or is there a global service URI that I can query to retrieve the blob storage URI, which can be combined with account information?

    2) OpenStack implementations have some recommendations around number of objects (10 million in one case) and minimum size of blobs (50 MB in the same architecture). Are there any Azure recommendations in this area? I've reviewed the information at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/azure-subscription-service-limits/#storage-limits, but that talks about maximum values, not recommended ones.

    Thanks,

  • Hello,

    So, the URL for the blob is guaranteed to remain like you asked (https://<myaccount>.blob.core.windows.net) except if Microsoft decides to change it and cause the deployments of millions of people to fail.

    As for the second question, i think a good rule of thumb is to try not to reach the maximum specified. I am not sure but just take further look into the storage documentations at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/services/storage/
