How to movie file from CDN storage to Azure Blob

    Question

  • I have to analyze Microsoft CDN(Content Delivery Network) log files, which are being achieved on CDN storage file system.

    Does anyone have idea about it, and what is the best way to do it:

    1. Transfer log files from CDN file system to Azure Storage/Blob?
    2. Files are in gzip format, need to unzip and then move to azure storage.

    There are few FTP tools which can be used to transfer file on FTP server, but I like to move it on Azure storage directly.

    Thanks,

    Pramod

  • Hi Pramod,

    We always recommend to us AzCopy to download/upload any files from Azure storage. However, AzCopy is a Command-line tool. If you need GUI interface app, you may use “Azure Storage explorer” Or any 3rd-party tools like Cloudberry, CloudXplorer, etc.

  • I think that the best manner for you is:

    - Download files on-premise

    - Un-zip these files

    - Upload them to Azure blob

    Because, making un-zip operation directly to a Blob is not possible.

    You can create a temporary Virtual Machine in Azure, and use it as a temporary server to unzip then upload to Azure
