Blobfuse: a virtual filesystem backed by the Azure Blob storage

Blobfuse is an open source library that implements a “filesystem” on top of the Azure Blob Storage REST API. Blobfuse is implementing its filesystem using libfuse, which is an open source communication layer on top of Linux FUSE kernel module.

This all means that you can mount any Azure Blob Storage container in your Linux filesystem and do normal filesystem-stuff like ls, mkdir, etc.

You can find installation instructions here: blobfuse installation. And, as always, you can clone this repository and build from source code your self directly from the GitHub Repo.
