  • Simple answer, yes you can. Please look at Azure Storage Client Library and/or Windows Azure Storage REST API about how to access table storage.

  • Hi,

    You don't have to use REST API in webrole. You can call it in any services such MVC, WCF or ASP.NET. Many samples can be found on web.

  • Hi,

    I looked at Client Library and API's. All the links I got are related to Web role and accessing Table storage using Web role. Did not get any link that talks about accessing Table storage from a web application that is hosted on IIS.

    Thanks,
    Krishna
