I have a SQL Server running on Azure VM whose backup size to Blob storage account is 10 times bigger than on local disk on that server.
The SQL Server database backup to disk on the same VM is 400MB, but same database when backup from SQL Server to URL Blob storage is about 4.2GB.
Any help will be much appreciated.
