    There are multiple ways you can do this, but first you will need the requirements and best practices for your CCTV device.

    Some require a VM, some might be able to hook up directly with Azure Storage. You can also make your VM into a file share and put the files in that way, it all depends upon how the device typically stores files.

    If you want more specific instructions, you will need to know what exactly your device needs.
