Azure Blob Storage on IoT Edge provides a block blob storage solution at the edge. A blob storage module on your IoT Edge device behaves like an Azure block blob service, except the block blobs are stored locally on your IoT Edge device. You can access your blobs using the same Azure storage SDK methods or block blob API calls that you’re already used to. This article explains the concepts related to Azure Blob Storage on IoT Edge container that runs a blob service on your IoT Edge device.
This module is useful in scenarios where data needs to be stored locally until it can be processed or transferred to the cloud. This data may be videos, images, finance data, hospital data, or any other unstructured data.
