At imgix, it’s important to us to accommodate your existing storage systems; we don’t want you to have to re-upload all of your images before you can access imgix’s image processing capabilities. Our existing Source types (Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Web Folder Sources, and Web Proxy Sources) address the vast majority of our customers’ needs, and we hope Microsoft Azure will be a welcome addition.

Previously, if you had already invested in Microsoft’s Azure cloud storage, then integrating with imgix would have required either moving your images to a different storage system or making your images public so that you could use a Web Folder Source. Now you can easily set up a Source directly with Azure—no workarounds required.

Adding a Microsoft Azure Source

It takes only a few minutes to set up your new Azure source. Simply head to the New Source page in the imgix Dashboard and choose Microsoft Azure from the dropdown menu. Fill in the storage account name, storage service type, bucket name, and shared access signature (SAS). Lastly, choose the Subdomain you'd like to use as the base URL for your images. Then click save and sit back—you’re done!
