The Azure IoT blob storage on IoT Edge module is now ready for production. If you are on the market for a storage solution at the Edge that works exactly like in the Cloud, across almost any hardware, and that uploads automatically, then this post is for you.
Azure Blob Storage on IoT Edge is now Generally available providing:
Let's look at how things work and what can be achieved with Azure Blob Storage on IoT Edge. In the diagram below, we have an edge device running Azure IoT Edge runtime. It is running a custom module to process the data collected from the sensor and saving the data to the local blob storage account. Because it is Azure-consistent, the custom module can be developed using the Azure Storage SDK to make calls to the local blob storage, or simply use the pre-existing applications like Azure Storage Explorer. Then it will automatically upload the data from specified containers to Azure while making sure your IoT Edge device does not run out of space.
This module is useful in scenarios:
Azure Blob Storage on IoT Edge module allows you to store and access such data efficiently, process if required, and then configure and choose which data get automatically uploaded to Azure. It supports disconnected scenarios, so you are covered even if the device has limited connectivity. It automatically deletes the data after a specified amount of time or when upload is finished from IoT Edge device making space for new data.
