Alfresco Content Connector for Azure 2.0

The Alfresco Content Connector for Azure is an add-on module that provides an alternative content store. It uses Microsoft’s Azure Blob Storage as the storage mechanism for Alfresco Content Services, allowing for virtually unlimited and inexpensive storage.

This release of the Azure Connector is a compatibility release and only new libraries were added to the v2.0 code to support Alfresco Content Services 7.0.

Other features introduced in previous versions include:

Note: The Alfresco Content Connector for Azure module can be applied to Content Services 7.0 or later.

Note: For improved performance of the Azure Connector, you may wish to run your Content Services instance on an Azure VM connected to Azure Blob storage.

The following diagram shows a simple representation of how Content Services and the Azure Connector interact with Azure resources. The storage account has a Blob container, which in turn contains Blobs. The naming convention is flat and only consists of the content UUID which follows Microsoft’s recommendations. See Naming and Referencing Containers, Blobs, and Metadata for more details.
