Azure Drive-Based Import Export Service

The Azure Import Export service uses customer-supplied hard drives to securely transfer large volumes of data in and out of Azure Blob storage accounts. The service could significantly reduce the time to upload and download data and offers other advantages over Internet transfer. The service has limitations, including drive size and number of drives per transfer job, and customers are responsible for encryption and compliance with any jurisdictional data-handling regulations. The turnaround speed of copying data and shipping hard drives may also limit the service to specific uses.
