This page describes how to deploy a federated database instance for accessing data in your Azure Blob Storage containers.
Before you begin, complete the following prerequisites:
Select the cloud provider where Atlas Data Federation will process your queries against your federated database instance.
You can select AWS or Azure. Once your federated database instance is created, you can't change the cloud provider where Atlas Data Federation processes your queries.
If you are configuring a federated database instance for data in an Azure Blob Storage container, you can't choose a cloud provider that is different from the cloud provider that is hosting your data. That is, you must choose Azure.
Optional: Repeat steps in the Visual Editor or JSON Editor tab above to define additional Azure Blob Storage data stores.
To add other data stores for federated queries, see:
You can't create an AWS data store for running federated queries across different cloud providers.
