Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud, with which I’ve been working in various capacities since late 2014 or so.


Various odds and ends I’ve found interesting or amusing:

  • Azurite, an Azure Storage emulator you can run as a Docker container
  • azure-storage-fuse, a FUSE filesystem that runs directly against blob storage (including the cool tier, which is great for cost-effective backups)
  • dysk, a neat little hack for mounting VHDs on Linux
  • rclone, which supports Azure Storage and has an experimental FUSE driver as well
