Azure implementation currently only supports Containers and Blobs. Full Azure storage support should include Tables and Queues.

Personally I think that this is outside of scope of CloudBlackbox functionality. The goal of CloudBlackbox is to provide a [more or less] uniform way to securely store file-like data in the cloud storages (which are BLOB storages by their nature). SQL and Tables are slightly different things. Am I missing something?

I guess it depends on your vision. If your vision is to simply store files in the Cloud then it's OK.

If you are concentrating on the more general Cloud Storage terminology, then 'Azure Storage' includes Blobs, Tables, and Queues. (Not requesting SQL)

In the current implementation, Container meta data isn't supported, so all we have to use SBB and Azure is blobs and blob metadata. There's nothing cloud-related to manage the list. In my case, various Tables are used to manage the list of blobs in various containers. I'm using nSoftware's components for this task as SBB only offered part of the Azure Storage solution. Their Azure Integrator includes Blobs, Tables, and Queues.

SecureBlackbox is a security suite, not DB management components or networking library. This means that we focus on security aspects rather than trying to cover all functionality in the world.

Your best option in managing Azure stuff is definitely Azure SDK, not something from /n software or SecureBlackbox. If you need *secure* data storage, that's a different question.

If you read CloudBlackbox description, it aims to provide a uniform API to store data in the clouds in a secure manner. You won't find a word about managing cloud objects in the description.
