Azure Blob Storage provides organizations with affordable and scalable cloud storage provided by Microsoft. GoAnywhere supports Block type blob storage. Azure Blob Storage can be configured as Resources in GoAnywhere and then specified as file repositories within Domains, or as Web User virtual folder locations. Projects in GoAnywhere can also connect to Azure Blob Storage resources to upload, download and manage documents by using qualified file paths (using the resource name) within various Tasks.
Configuring the Azure Blob Resource (server connections) in GoAnywhere MFT saves time and provides additional security through separation of duties. After a resource is defined, a Project Designer can create a task and just refer to the Blob Storage Resource without needing to know the confidential login credentials.
In the Azure Blob Resource below, an administrator is creating a connection to Azure Blob Storage that can be used to automate transfers to and from the Azure Blob Storage.
