Azure Blobs Storage Driver Documentation

Connecting to Azure Blobs

To connect to Azure Blobs you need your storage account name and access key.

You can retrieve this information in the Azure Management Portal by going to “Storage Accounts” -> “Access Keys” as shown on the screenshots below.


Note that libcloud only supports general purpose storage accounts so make sure to select the “Storage (general purpose v1)” account kind when creating your storage account as shown on the screenshot below.


Instantiating a driver

Once you have obtained your credentials you can instantiate the driver as shown below.

from import Provider
from import get_driver

cls = get_driver(Provider.AZURE_BLOBS)

driver = cls(key='your storage account name',
             secret='your access key')
