Demonstrates how to use the Blob Storage service. Blob storage stores unstructured data such as text, binary data, documents or media files. Blobs can be accessed from anywhere in the world via HTTP or HTTPS.
Note: This sample uses the .NET 4.5 asynchronous programming model to demonstrate how to call Azure Storage using asynchronous API calls. When used in real applications, this approach enables you to improve the responsiveness of your application. Calls to Azure Storage are prefixed by the
await keyword. For more information about asynchronous programming using the Async/Await pattern, see Asynchronous Programming with Async and Await (C# and Visual Basic).
