Azure Storage

A custom storage system for Django using Windows Azure Storage backend.



This setting sets the path to the Azure storage class:

DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.azure_storage.AzureStorage'


This setting is the Windows Azure Storage Account name, which in many cases is also the first part of the url for instance: would mean:

AZURE_ACCOUNT_NAME = "azure_account_name"


This is the private key that gives your Django app access to your Windows Azure Account.


This is where the files uploaded through your Django app will be uploaded. The container must be already created as the storage system will not attempt to create it.
