I think there are several valuable features in the product. The security technically is good, but they require a lot of security rules to be set up. Even so, it was kind of easy to configure. So the security is good. I think the ease-of-use is also good because we can even upload files up from one machine onto other blob storage, another nice feature that is also provided. Apart from that, Azure also provides Azure Storage Explorer, which can be used to access Blob data once you map it onto a local machine. I think also its scalability is a good feature. You can put terabytes of data into Blob Storage. So that is also one of the beneficial features of Blob. View full review »

The tier feature in V2 is the most valuable feature of this solution. It enables you to move your storage from hot tier to cold tier into archive tier. That is one of the features I liked it better than a version V1 because V1did not have this feature.version. Because of it, we can save costs on storage. View full review »

The solution offers tiers of storage, depending on what we want to do. If I want to store my data for a very long period of time and I know that I'm going to archive it, I just do the archive. You can easily access your data whenever you need it. View full review »

The data lake is invaluable. We also use Microsoft SQL in terms of structuring the data and getting into a position where it could be useful to support reporting. We use Databricks for data science. We incorporated Databricks with that as well. View full review »
