Azure Storage vs Openstack Swift: What are the differences?
Developers describe Azure Storage as "Reliable, economical cloud storage for data big and small". Azure Storage provides the flexibility to store and retrieve large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents and media files with Azure Blobs; structured nosql based data with Azure Tables; reliable messages with Azure Queues, and use SMB based Azure Files for migrating on-premises applications to the cloud. On the other hand, Openstack Swift is detailed as "A distributed object storage system designed to scale from a single machine to thousands of servers". It is a highly available, distributed, eventually consistent object/blob store. Organizations can use Swift to store lots of data efficiently.
Azure Storage and Openstack Swift can be categorized as "Cloud Storage" tools.
Some of the features offered by Azure Storage are:
- Blobs, Tables, Queues, and Files
- Highly scalable
