I am experimenting with passing data to a SqlAzure table using Azure Functions.

I used the new and apparently experimental External Table output available in Azure Functions. Experimental just means in preview.

This Azure Functions output is a very promising way to insert records in all kinds of data sources. I can recommend using it when you want to insert, alter or lookup data.
