For my last session in Techdays in Geneva this year, I proposed a session on the integration between SharePoint 2010 and Azure.
I am giving away today a custom column for SharePoint 2010 to upload download content to Azure Blob Storage !
What this thing does :
- link the column instance in SP to a Blob Storage container,
- as it is a custom Field, it integrates completely in SP and can leverage security and search capabilities,
- it is dealing with upload / download with a Silverlight client (using chunks for best performance),
- this upload is based on Shared Access Signatures, to simplify security access for the Silverlight client.
Here is the link to the solution (all source code available) : http://sp2010azurefield.codeplex.com/
