I have some large Files (>3GB) to upload to a Drupal (running on azure). Because of the size of the files, I think i need to upload it to the azure storage (with Azure Storage Explorer) and then use the file in Drupal. This all works fine so far.
But: When I create the content page, I can't find a way to browse the azure storage instead of the local File system?
I use Windows Azure Integration. But this just gives me the possibility to upload a file to a azure storage blob. When I try this with a large File in the Drupal installation, it takes forever (ok, I didn't wait until the end). I am looking for the other way around: upload file to azure storage. Use this file in Drupal.
Does anyone have a solution? Or how would you solve the problem?
Using the proposed Remote File Source worked for me when I choose "File Attach". I have to upload the file to the web-server though and not to the azure storage. But doing this with filezilla does the job.
