File transfer utility for multiple client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am new to Azure and would like to get some opinion on architecture i am preparing. I am looking for the solution where Multiple Client from On-Prem can transfer text files to Azure Storage. Each client should have their own authentication and should only be able to transfer in their own directory. they should not be able to see other directories or files. Ones data is transferred to Azure Storage it will be loaded into Database.

    Thanks in advance for your help

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. There are several ways to accomplish what are asking. It would be great to tell us what specific storage option you plan on using: Queues,File shares, or Azure blobs. 

    When it comes to transferring files:

    Customers can useAzcopy , and authenticate using SAS which provides a narrowed and specific access to storage resources(folders(Blobs), containers, and even specific blobs)

    When data is in Azure storage & load to Databases:

    You should consider using Logic Apps, it has connectors to Azure blobs, which will allow you to perform an action once a blob is in Azure storage.
