Microsoft Azure Storage

Azure Storage is a service that you can use to store files, messages, tables and other types of information.

You can use Azure storage on its own—for example as a file share—but it is often used by developers as a store for working data. Such stores can be used by websites, mobile apps, desktop applications, and many other types of custom solutions. Azure storage is also used by IaaS virtual machines, and PaaS cloud services.
