Migrating from Rackspace cloudfiles to Azure Blob storage

We have been using rackspace CDN so far and Now we want to use Azure CDN. We need to migrate our data from Rackspace container cloudfiles to Azure Blob storage. What is correct way to migrate this data with minimum disruption. Data size is 500 GB.

@Aparna-7978 Thank you for your time and patience.

There are not a lot of tools that support OpenStack Swift (the foundation of RAX Cloud Files). As this is a small amount of data (500GB), I would recommend using RackSpace’s recommended tool CyberDuck. It can copy and synchronize between Cloud Files and Blob Storage.

Reference / recommendation from Rackspace - Other tools and applications for Cloud Files — Rackspace Cloud Files v1.0 v1. documentation

Please let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.
