Azure Blob Storage

Azure Blob Storage destination plugin

Azure Blob Storage is a cloud-based object storage solution offered by Microsoft Azure. It provides highly scalable and durable storage for unstructured data such as text, images, and videos. With the Azure Blob Storage destination plugin, you can configure your Calyptia Core pipeline to store your logs, metrics, and other data types directly in your Azure Blob Storage account. This lets you store and manage large amounts of data, while also providing a high level of security and reliability for your data.
