Referring to information posted here:
For a blob storage account, I'm not clear on what an ingress limit is. It states that "the ingress limit refers to all data from requests that are sent to a storage account", but wouldn't that essentially be data you're sending in for storage? If that were the case, the ingress limit shouldn't be lower than the maximum storage capacity.
Someone help clear this up for me?
