Working with Azure Blob and NAV

UPDATE 2: The code is (finally) published here. https://github.com/markbrummel/azure-blob-storage-public

UPDATE!! The code will be published. Please allow me a period to do so. Making the code available will be part of the next itteration of the ForNAV report pack module.

This is something that’s long overdue, I wanted to write this before my summer vacation.

My reason for holding back is that I want to share all the code for this project and this needs cleaning up. This is still not done and if you want the code you’ll have to contact me.

Why am I still writing this? I am actually writhing this from the “International” airport of Cork Ireland where I spent the day with my friend Tim Grant.

Tim and I go way back when we both worked together on the Design Patterns project with Microsoft and the reason for my visit was to help him with his go-to cloud strategy.

Last spring we moved all EDI and E-Invoicing at my customer Vos Transport from On-Prem to Azure Blob Storage and Logic Apps.

In total we moved 4.5 million files to the cloud and migrated a few dozen EDI processes to use Azure Blob storage as queues.

The cost of storage and running this is less than 100 euro’s per month and it is insanely stable. So stable that I had to use Statical Prism today to find some of the code and explain it to Tim.

I’ll let this post sit here for a while and see what happens. if I get spammed to share the code I’ll spend the time cleaning it up. If nothing happens than no time is wasted.

Enjoy…

    Mark, We have client want to use Azure Blob Storage to move files (data) from one system to Business Central (SAAS), if you could share your code that would be much appreciated
