Manage Your Windows Azure Storage Using Cloud Storage Studio

Cloud Storage Studio is a standalone WPF application to manage your Windows Azure storage

Azure Cloud on Ulitzer

Cloud Storage Studio is a standalone WPF application to manage your Windows Azure storage. You will need to have .Net 3.5 installed on your computer to run this application.

Here is the feature list of Cloud Storage Studio (at a high level):

Storage account management:

  • Connect to one or more storage accounts simultaneously.
  • Development storage is also supported.
  • Ability to persist storage account information so that you don't have to type in your account name/key to connect.
  • Ability to auto connect to your storage accounts.

Table/Entity management:

  • Create/delete tables.
  • Create/edit/delete entities [ability to edit/delete multiple entities is also supported].
  • Ability to filter by PartitionKey.
  • Query your table storage.
  • Download your table data to your computer in XML format.
  • Manually insert entities [To upload entities in bulk, we recommend using Azure Database Uploader and Azure File Uploader utilities (also developed by us). You can get them from CodePlex].

Queue/Message management:

  • Create/delete queue.
  • Update queue metadata.
  • Create message.
  • List messages [using PEEK and not GET].
  • Auto refresh queues [Configurable. When this feature is turned on in configuration settings, the queues will auto refresh after a period of time specified by you].
  • Clear messages [Delete messages is not supported in this application].

Blob containers/blobs management:

  • Create/delete blob containers.
  • Update container metadata.
  • Create/update/delete container ACL (it includes defining container as Public/Private as well as granular access policies). For more information about this, please read this thread http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsazure/thread/f8336cc0-74e3-4d29-af46-f563c263ba86.
  • Upload blobs: You can upload one or more files, folders in one shot. You can drag files and folders from your desktop/windows explorer and drop them on the application upload blob window to add them to upload queue. You can also copy the files/folders on the clipboard and paste them on the application upload blob window to add them to upload queue. While uploading you can define if you want to split a blob into blocks or not. You can pause/resume/cancel upload session as well.
  • Download blobs: You can download one or more files in one shot. While downloading you can specify where you want these files to be stored on your computer. Like upload, you can pause/resume/cancel download session. Like upload again, you can specify if you want to download blobs in blocks or not.
  • Copy blobs
  • Move blobs
  • Rename blob
  • Delete blobs
  • Generate signed URL for blob. Again see this thread for more details http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsazure/thread/f8336cc0-74e3-4d29-af46-f563c263ba86.

Other Features:

  • Request Inspector: We have built a "Fiddler" like utility inside the application using which you can track your requests and responses made to the storage engine.
  • Configurable: There are lots of configuration features available in this application.

Cloud Storage Studio is in public beta right now. You can learn more about it and download a fully functional copy of the application from our website http://www.cerebrata.com/Products/CloudStorageStudio.
