The storage account is the highest level of the namespace for accessing each of the fundamental services. The REST APIs for storage services expose the storage account as a resource.

The REST API for the Blob service exposes two resources: containers and blobs.

A container is like a folder, containing a set of blobs; every blob must reside in a container.

Within a storage account, a developer may create tables. An entity is a collection of named properties and their values, similar to a row.

Tables are partitioned to support load balancing across storage nodes.

The enumeration operation for blobs supports traversing the virtual hierarchy in a manner similar to that of a file system, so that you can return a set of blobs that are organized beneath a group.

For example, you can enumerate all blobs organized under . Block blobs less than or equal to 256 MB (64 MB for requests using REST versions before 2016-05-31) in size can be uploaded by calling the Put Blob operation.

The maximum size currently supported for a block blob is 5,000,000 MB (200,000 MB for requests using REST versions before 2016-05-31).

Page blobs are created and initialized with a maximum size with a call to Put Blob.

A client may read the entire blob, or an arbitrary range of bytes.

For the Blob service API reference, see Blob Service REST API.

The Table service provides structured storage in the form of tables.
