Azure Blob Uploader Can Upload Large File In Blocks

Azure Blob Uploader has been developed to upload rather huge files, such as files that run up to a few gigabytes. It allows uploading of one large file at a time, the procedure is to break down the large files into smaller blocks and then upload them slowly.

The biggest problem with huge file arises when your internet gets disconnected in the middle of uploading process. Azure Blob Storage will resume the upload where it left off, thus making it easier for your file to be uploaded successfully.

The interface itself is easy to understand, enter the account name, account key, URL, container name, the file to upload, select the block size, and finally hit Upload.
