Download from internet directly to blob bypassing the local drive

Farhad, M. M. - SDSU Student 1 Reputation point

I have to download some data from internet. I want the data to be downloaded directly to my azure blobs under a particular container. I know how to copy these files and later upload those from my local drive. I am sure, there is a way to do that but I am not getting the resources which will be helpful for me.

    AzCopy does allow copying from AWS S3 and Google Cloud Storage, so check if that is an option for you. If not, you can consider doing this with one of the SDKs or REST API. Here is a thread with sample code from the .NET SDK that works. Here is another example on Stack Overflow.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions or issues and we will be happy to help.
