Using Azure Blob Storage to receive data from Azion Data Streaming
Data Streaming is one of Azion’s Observe products designed to help you access your content and application data in real time. To successfully use Data Streaming with connectors, you first need to set up the endpoints.
After completing the initial setup, you can use Azure Blob Storage to receive data from Azion’s Data Streaming. Once you finish connecting the endpoint, you can improve your monitoring and use other Azion products to continue exploring information on your data.
